[Expressa]( is a node.js library which provides a frontend for site administrators to define schemas, manage content, and set permissions on endpoints based on user roles - all without programming. It's similar to Django, except simpler since it is backend-only and user's are expected to write their own frontend code that contacts the APIs. It's just implemented as an express middleware so it's easy to integrate with other node applications.

In this talk I'll go over the basics of creating an API with Node.js and then discuss how more easily you can do the same with expressa. I'll also discuss the difficulties with this approach and how I see the future of API creation.
