node.pgh 0.17 - Sails.js

  • February 26, 2014 · 7:00 PM

Sails.js is a realtime MVC framework for Node.js that is inspired by some of the best ideas behind Ruby on Rails and realtime frameworks like Meteor.js.

In this meetup I'll overview getting started with Sails.js,  its architecture and features and demonstrate a simple application built on top of Sails.js.

Come on down and learn a brand new way to think about web application development with Node.

    Has anyone installed Sails.js on Windows 2008? I installed node.js and npm, but "sails" command is not recognized. Not sure if anyone had a similar problem or can give a hint.

      And even though I was logged in as an 'Administrator'­, I still had to go in to my project folder permissions and give 'Full Control'. Let me know if you get in running.

      Hey Jim. Yes I did all you said. It's funny, I also had some dependencies errors. I just ran 'npm install -g sails' around 3-4 times, and it installed correctly in the end. Don't know why. But I fixed my problem by putting a sails.bat file in the c:\Windows\system32 and writing 'node PATH_TO_SAILS_JS' inside.

    Unfortunately not going to be able to make it. I have a go-live tonight and doubt I will have things wrapped up in time. Are you planning on posting any slides from the talk, I was really excited for this one?

    Thanks,

      Yeah, I will definitely throw a link out on slideshare afterwards for those interested in Sails.js

    As a beginner to both Node.js and Sails, I'd love to hear more about the asset management in Sails, and how Grunt.js works. I seem to have a lot of issues with this.

    Which version of Sails will you be showing?

    I ask because the new 0.10 branch is now in the master branch on GitHub and includes 'Associations'. It would be great to see them in an example.

    Thank you for this meetup! Excited about this one!

      Sails is still really early in the making so I'll keep pulling the latest stuff I get my hands on up until a few days before the meetup. I'd be happy to include associations in the subjects I'll be covering. Thanks for the interest!
