What is Connect?

Connect is considered a "middleware" framework, providing all the tools you'd need in a framework but letting the programmer arrange them however he sees fit. Those familiar with Hydrogen will understand this approach. It comes with a logger, a router, session and cookie support, a profiler, http AND https support, a static file server, and the list goes on and on. Because the connect framework is so easily pluggable, there's also a multitude of third-party addons that include killer functionality like internationalization (i18n), JSONP, JSON-RPC, oAuth, and many many other great libraries that would be very non-trivial to write yourself. Because of the quality of this toolkit and its incredible popularity, most of the more strict Node.js frameworks use Connect in the backend.
