Web source code structure

Kindie Web Admin is built by SailsJS, is a Javascript framework designed to resemble the MVC architecture from frameworks like Ruby on Rails. It makes the process of building Node.js apps easier, especially APIs, single page apps and realtime features, like chat...
The api Folder This folder is composed from a buch of sub-folders:
    the adapters folder contains the adapters used by the application to handle database connections
    the controllers folder contains the application controllers
    the application's models are stored in the models folder
    in the policiesfolder are stored rules for application user access
    the api services implemented by the app are stored in the services folder
The assets Folder The assets folder contains subdirectories for the Javascript and CSS files that should be loaded during runtime. This is the best place to store auxiliary libraries used by your application.
The public Folder Contains the files that are publicly available, such as pictures your site uses, the favicon, etc.
The config Folder This is one of the important folders. Sails is designed to be flexible. It assumes some standard conventions, but it also allows the developer to change the way Sails configures the created app to fit the project's needs. The following is a list of configuration files present in the config folder:
    adapters.js - used to configure the database adapters
    application.js - general settings for the application
    assets.js - asset settings for CSS and JS
    bootstrap.js - code that will be ran before the app launches
    locales- folder containing translations
    policies.js - user rights management configuration
    routes.js - the routes for the system
    views.js - view related settings
The sails.js documentation contains detailed information on each of these folders.
The views Folder
The application's views are stored in this folder. Looking at its contents, we notice that the views are generated by default as EJS (embedded JavaScript). Also, the views folder contains views for error handling (404 and 500) and also the layout file (layout.ejs) and the views for the home controller, which were generated by Sails.
