Projects / Roosevelt MVC web framework

Roosevelt MVC web framework

Roosevelt is a Web framework for Node.js which uses Teddy for HTML templating, LESS for CSS preprocessing, and Closure Compiler for JS minification by default. It is designed to be configurable so you can supply your own templating system, CSS preprocessor, or JS minifier if you like. Built on Express, Roosevelt is designed to abstract all the crusty boilerplate necessary to build a typical Express app, sets sane defaults with mechanisms for override, and provides a uniform MVC structure for your app.
