Promise-based web framework.

Mach has some pretty cool streaming functionalities built directly into it, if your web app provides any audio/video/data streaming features, you can consider using Mach to build it.
Since Mach already is asynchronous (stateless) which means your logic is implemented by using promises (
then objects); hence your functions are pretty independent and composable.
Like most of the Node.js's core, Mach is an asynchronous web framework too. Each response (of a request) can simply be hooked up to a
then method so that its result or the reason for failure can be retrieved after the action is complete. If you're wondering what async operations are, here's a pretty good explanation for you
One of the distinguishing features of Mach is it's robustness, errors won't be terminating your complete app, instead they'll bubble up so you can handle them gracefully.
