I also had Adonis on my radar. I do enjoy working with micro-frameworks like Express, Flask, and Slim, as they are easy to set up and are very lightweight but combining libraries and so forth can be time consuming and a pain if you're on a deadline, which is why I think these types of tools are better suited for websites, REST APIs and very small apps. More traditional or complex apps require something well structured, like Laravel, or Django, so I've been hoping to see something like that in Node.js, and I think Adonis might be the answer I've been looking for. Typescript, web sockets, sessions and included ORM are a huge plus!
