Macchiato – build Node web applications with minimal additional overhead

Macchiato is a ClojureScript micro-framework based on a set of lightweight libraries.

It aims to provide a robust, scalable, and easy to use platform. With Macchiato you can focus on developing your app the way you want without any distractions.

Macchiato is free and open source software.

Features include:

  • Implements core Ring 1.6 async handlers and middleware on top of Node.js. The API is kept same as the original Ring API whenever possible.
  • Uses Struct as the default validation library. Struct provides struct.core/validate and struct.core/valid? functions for handling validation.
  • Security – CSRF is enabled by default. Requests such as form POSTs must contain the CSRF token.
  • Defaults to using in-memory sessions.
  • Bidi is used as the default routing library. However, you can easily swap for a number of other libraries, such as router.
  • Provides middleware for automatically negotiating content type for the requests and responses.
  • Encourages using the Clean Architecture style for writing web applications.
