AdonisJs is battery included, comes with db setup, mail, mvc, testing utlities, you name it. It lets you focus on writing the application, so you don't have to focus much about building the architecture around it.

Thanks a lot, that makes sense. I prefer to compile those modules together myself, that tend to achieve maximum flexibility and gives you a better time if there appeared to be a better alternative on the market which needs to be included vs relying on framework devs to bring the support and define the migration path for it. Got very burnt on that with Sails and their ORM. Seems like Adonis is a good alternative to Sails in that regard, so if I need to pick ease of initial setup as a requirement for another project, Adonis would be a good candidate.

Flexibility is truly very important in Node.js, I agree. But it is very powerful to have a default, and AdonisJS doesn't stop you from installing new packages if you want to.
