i just tried trailsJS (successor to sailsJs) with CR, and it appears to work quite well. I ran into one minor issue, but thanks to the gitter support, it was quickly resolved.
please let me know if there is any interest. i have a Gist that runs the entire install procedure.
edit: i think the cockroach-sequelize interface may be the most underrated item on github. time to add more stars to it?
and maybe add a github star to trailsJs as well?
