Kraken.js Framework Monitoring


Kraken.js is a web application framework that extends Express.js by providing structure and convention. Created by PayPal to build integrated online shopping carts, Kraken offers a configuration and convention layer to the core Express framework by managing the organizational aspects of application building. It also provides a foundation so that key components like models, templates, route controllers, and content bundles remain separate from one another for better scalability. Kraken comes with several plugins that may be used independently of the framework: Lusca, an application security module, Kappa, an NPM proxy, Makara, an i18n internationalization module for Dust.js, and Adaro, a Dust.js view renderer for Express.

With the AppDynamics platform you can monitor, troubleshoot and diagnose performance issues in your Node.js applications built on the Express framework – in real time, and in production.
