Introducing Express

Express is a fast minimalist web framework for Node.js. It helps us build web apps.
It is NPM package which comes with a bunch of methods and optional plugins that we can use to build web apps and API's.

Express helps us start up servers to listen for request, parse incoming requests, match those requests to particular routes, and craft our http response and associated content.

Libraries vs. Frameworks

Library is when you control the flow of the application code, and you decide when to use the library.

Framework is in control of the flow of the application code, frameworks tells you where to plug in the code.
