Any experience with Sails.js?

I am considering using the Sails.js framework for Node, which is an MVC framework. It includes an ORM called Watermark, which interfaces with MySql and MongoDb.

Has anyone got experience with this?

I want:

- a Node back-end (at least I think I do)
- a way to organize the complexity in a large project (which MVC can offer)
- the ability to have SQL queries AND a JSON database which is lighting fast and highly scalable

Please provide some feedback on whether I am on the right track or not, or whether there is a better solution.

Thanks.

a JSON database...
Not familiar with the other technologies, but I can weigh in on this part.  JSON is a data transport mechanism, like XML (but lighter weight).  It's not a database in any way.  It might provide some hierarchical data organization like XML, but there are no relationships captured in the notation at all.  You might use JSON to encode the results set from queries.

Maybe if you can tell us about the planned app in plain language with non-technical terms.. ?

How do I find the Google Group? And what does IRC mean?

Yes, MongoDb is the highly scalable database which uses "No SQL" to insert / retrieve records. It's 100% JSON and ultra-high performance.
