Before diving into details in the matter of full stack applications, I would like to point out the reasons that make me start searching of something like this. You might ask "something like what?" :).
Well, firstly I started experimented with angular generator for creating a single page application that would connected with a REST API. But what about if I wanted to make any heavily data manipulation or anything sensitive? In the other hand, I met NodeJs' sockets and I would probably wanted to use them in future.
For avoiding combine express with angular in a later stage, I decided to do it from beginning.
Recently I tentative started reading about nodeJs and despite it’s a new framework I’ve been excited of the ecosystem it already has. Isn’t hard to find of what you are looking for and the nodeJs.org itself is really helpful.
For my comparison I used ab Apache Http Server benchmarking tool
I will come back soon with more results
Both of applications have identical pages. It is just 10000 list items that comes from mysql. In order to test only the application and not the database I am caching the results the first time they arrive.
for .net application I used v4.5 and MVC3 and for nodeJs I used sailsJs .
