Lazorse is a resource-oriented web-framework with a strong emphasis on extensibility and the separation of various concerns into independent middleware_ layers.

It includes middleware to find a resource, coerce URL parameters, dispatch to HTTP method handlers, and render a response.

It borrows heavily from other awesome node.js web frameworks_ but with a couple of twists designed to make writing machine-consumable ReSTful APIs a little easier. Because it's all "just middleware", you can also pull out and re-arrange the various pieces to better suit the needs of your application.

What's the deal with the name?

While it could be viewed as a portmentaeu of Lazy and Resource, I prefer to think of it as horses with lasers.
