Configurable and modular Node backend framework built in TypeScript.

You should read "tsty" as "Tasty". (You know, Just for FUN!)



npm install tsty

Why not include "Angular" to become MEAN?

I wanted it to be only backend framework without any front end dependencies, so it can be used with any frontend frameworks like Angular, Backbone or even mobile apps.

Those who love Angular and want to tighly bind it in system, there's always a choice to go back to MEAN.io. For others, who wants to keep frontend and backend separate, this is the choice.


In TypeScript:

import * as App from "tsty";
App.application.serve({}, () => {
    console.log("Application Started");

In JavaScript:

var App = require("tsty");
App.application.serve({}, () => {
    console.log("Application Started");
