Need a good ORM for Node.js

I have a Node project which uses Express and MySQL, but I need an ORM. I have heard good things about Waterline.

What can you tell me about which ORM to use? Do I need Sales.JS if I want Waterline?

I have a new project so it's the best time for new frameworks, and would consider Sales.JS is there was real benefit. But I do consider the current framework to be MVC, which I suspect comes from Express: Models, Views and Routes.

I like Waterline since I may need MongoDb at some point, but expect to use MySQL exclusively, for a long while.

Thanks!

I've used Sails with great success and the benefit is the model abstraction means that you can switch databases easily as you code uses the same syntax regardless.  I would strongly suggest Sails.

http://sailsjs.org/ is built on Waterline but you don't need it just to have the ORM.  I just like the MVC framework.  Makes your code a lot more logical and clean.

So, Sailsjs makes it easy to export all the features of Waterline?

Absolutely.  It incorporates a lot of stuff that makes all aspects on db and content easy.  I know, I sound like I'm selling it but that's because I've found it so easy! *laughing*
