How It Works
Gravity uses a standard Model-View-Controller pattern with a RESTFUL API. Adding your own features as simple as adding a new view, setting up a new API route and connecting it to a model via a controller.
The Gravity Core is built with Node.js and has the following dependencies:
- bcrypt 3.0.0
- client-sessions 0.8.0

- mysql 2.16.0
- randomstring 1.1.5
- stripe 6.3.0
The front-end is built with HTML5, SCSS/CSS and jQuery.
