Thanks Andy, I will definitely check it out! Does it play nicely with typescript?

Yes. They have first class support for Typescript. Some of the docs I will recommend you to read to see their approach towards Typescript.

There is a lot to explore in the framework. We have a great small community and everyone is helpful.

Also, one of the community member is creating these screencasts for new comers jagr.co/series/lets-learn-adonis-5

Oh nice, I do like a good screencast!

That’s cool, I do really like typescript, the main things that let down the node approach for me where 1) bullmq randomly falling over (I still don't know what was going on there, just don't know enough about it to dig in further) 2) type-orm, which is great, but it just wasn't as polished as ActiveRecord, 3) pulling all these libraries together myself, rather than having a more full stack framework. Hopefully adonis solves that.
