Sails.js vs TypeORM: What are the differences?

Developers describe Sails.js as "Realtime MVC Framework for Node.js". Sails is designed to mimic the MVC pattern of frameworks like Ruby on Rails, but with support for the requirements of modern apps: data-driven APIs with scalable, service-oriented architecture. On the other hand, TypeORM is detailed as "An ORM that can run in NodeJS and others". It supports both Active Record and Data Mapper patterns, unlike all other JavaScript ORMs currently in existence, which means you can write high quality, loosely coupled, scalable, maintainable applications the most productive way.

Sails.js and TypeORM belong to "Microframeworks (Backend)" category of the tech stack.

Sails.js and TypeORM are both open source tools. It seems that Sails.js with 20.7K GitHub stars and 1.85K forks on GitHub has more adoption than TypeORM with 14.4K GitHub stars and 1.85K GitHub forks.

According to the StackShare community, Sails.js has a broader approval, being mentioned in 47 company stacks & 150 developers stacks; compared to TypeORM, which is listed in 9 company stacks and 22 developer stacks.
