The Feathers "a-ha!" moment
Feathers is transport agnostic
A Feathers server automatically handles requests from
- HTTP REST clients,
- Feathers REST clients, or
- Feathers WebSocket clients.
Feathers resource management is platform agnostic
Identical database calls may be made on the server and on the frontend without you needing to do anything.
- This makes frontend development significantly easier.
- It allows you to share code between the server and the frontend.
The "a-ha!" moment
The "a-ha!" moment comes when you start to realize the significance of these features. Enormous amounts of boilerplate simply disappear.
You might now start to appreciate why people are enthusiastic about Feathers.
