Sails.js is a real-time MVC (Model-View-Controller) application framework that sits on top of Node.js. It simplifies the process of building data-driven APIs by adhering to the conventions of other frameworks like Ruby on Rails and PHP's Laravel. The framework uses Waterline as its default ORM/ODM adapter, which enables developers to use different databases with minimal effort. Sails provides built-in support for features such as WebSockets, RESTful JSON API creation and auto-generated documentation. Sails also offers a blueprint API generation system, which can create routes and controller actions based on defined models — reducing the amount of code that needs to be written manually during development while ensuring consistency across an application's endpoints.
