Discussion on: One week with Nest.js, is it good?

Totally agree with your conclusion. Moving from raw express with TypeScript to NestJS has been a breath of fresh air, especially since I come from an object-oriented background. I didn't know that having good support for following important architectural principles and using mechanisms like dependency injection was even a possibility in Node until discovering NestJS.

On the integration front, it helped me quickly implement GraphQL APIs and also to set up Apollo Federation down the road quite easily. Very good third party support for lots of the tech found in many modern stacks today.

I also agree that the documentation is outstanding, world class compared to most open source projects.

Also, yeah it's probably overkill for small projects that aren't likely to grow much. But since I know it, I would use it for even small proofs of concept.
