Nest.js vs Express.js

marius profile image Marius Espejo Updated on ・1 min read

I've been hearing about Nest.js recently and decided to take a stab at trying it and comparing it with Express.js (both are web application frameworks for Node.js).

Nest is sort of the "next layer" up from Express, providing an out-of-the-box application architecture (in contrast to Express which takes a more minimal approach).

In this video I tried to document my process of learning and trying it for the first time, focusing on a comparison of how to get started as well as taking a look at how to write basic controllers.

If you have any feedback, good/bad would love to hear it!
