Flatiron Application Monitoring


Flatiron is a framework used to build JavaScript- and Node.js-based web applications. Flatiron is composed of simple, robust components that can be combined in multiple ways to create functional, full-featured apps.

Out of the box Flatiron comes with a host of decoupled tools that work equally well independently or in unison. They include a URL routing tool to direct traffic based on URLs received on servers and browsers; a fast, DSL-free template tool; a storage agnostic resource-oriented object to document mapper to manage data; a hybrid buffered middleware kernel; a multi-transport asynchronous logging library; and a plugin manager that supplies bare-bones application extensibility and composition, as well as feature reflection.

Additional Flatiron tools may be found at its GitHub repository.
