Netflix, which uses Falcor for the company's mobile, desktop, and TV applications, has just released a developer preview of the technology, which can be accessed on GitHub.
Falcor is middleware and not a replacement for an application server, database, or MVC framework, Netflix said. "Instead, Falcor can be used to optimize communication between the layers of a new or existing application." Netflix plans to release a road map for Falcor soon. The developer preview features a Node version of the Falcor Router, which is not yet in production use. Falcor Router is an implementation of the DataSource interface, which can expose graph information. Netflix also is providing a working example server for a Netflix-like application, accessible at this GitHub page.
