Many moons ago I released a Node.js tool called Simple-API. Simple-API is a “A Node.js API Scaffolding Library”; essentially that means that Simple-API makes it incredibly easy to quickly build an API in Node.js. I use it for all of my own development, and have found it to be incredibly quick and useful.
Today I’m releasing version 0.1. This version comes with a number of bug fixes, as well as a few major feature additions.
pieceskey has changed to
beforehook to API object, so you can run some code before each API request. This hook allows you to return false and skip the API action (goes to fallback).

I’m sure that, if you’re interested in Simple-API, you’re probably wondering what the status of Models is. I’m beginning to get into a groove with how I like to use models with Simple-API, and will likely include an implementation in the next version. My goal is for models to be database-agnostic, but to not have all the flack of an ORM. They will likely function similar to controller actions in that you write most of the functionality for the model, and Simple-API just connects all the important pieces.
