Rapid API Development

Foxx is a server-side JavaScript application framework that – instead of being a separate application layer is directly integrated into the open source NoSQL database ArangoDB. When your first thought is “Oh no, stored procedures” – don’t worry: Foxx helps you structure your application using the MVC pattern and yes, you can put everything into your version control. Still it tremendously reduces redundancy in database communication and provides direct access to all features of ArangoDB like graph traversals or the query language AQL. Furthermore it automatically generates an interactive API documentation with just a few annotations. Foxx perfectly integrates both with modern client-side MVC frameworks or can be used behind your server-side application to reduce roundtrips to the database.
