Mobile, web and integration apps need REST APIs. These often traverse across data sources including SQL, MongoDB and enterprise systems. Creating an API is difficult and time consuming, especially when you consider business logic and security.


Espresso’s backend-as-a-service is the fastest way to  create REST APIs that span across multiple data sources. Using our unique reactive programming approach, Espresso enables developers to write clear and concise business rules to define logic and specify fine grain security – 10x faster than other approaches. The result is secure and adaptable working mobile and web apps in days instead of weeks.

Why Espresso?

Faster development with Espresso Live API

Robust APIs Developed in Minutes

Consider a requirement for an app where customer data resides in one SQL database, sales data in another and social network data in MongoDB. Espresso’s Live API provides a fast way to create a REST API that provides real-time data across various data sources without copying. It is an enterprise-class API with pagination, filtering, sorting and much more.

Business Rules For Changing Applications

Espresso’s reactive programming approach, Live Logic, uses business rules to replace hand-written code for update logic. These no-compile rules map to requirements and are easily changed to keep pace with business change. An object model with server-side JavaScript is available for extending the rules and creating new business logic as needed.
