    Change API to use ECMAScript6 · 00a87dec
    João Victor Risso authored
    Major modifications:
    - Source code is now in the src directory
    - All source files were adapted to ECMAScript6
    - Add Gulpfile and Babel to transcompile the project from ES6 to ES5 (until Node.js fully supports ES6)
    	- By running gulp one generates the build directory with the files transcompiled, from which the API can be run
    - Add ESLint to check for syntax errors and enforce code standards
    	- Javascript coding standard currently adopted is AirBnB with 4 spaces
    - Replace monetdb package with monetdb-pool, which allows for concurrent queries over a pool of connections while maintaining the same interface
    TODO (in order of priority, from high to low):
    - Add Gulp tasks to handle automatic building, tests and running the server in order to deprecate using npm
    - Implement decorator to execute the SQL queries and reduce code duplication.
    - Implement SQL query builder (e.g. squel.js) to erradicate the need for embedding SQL directly into the code (which is error-prone).
    - Change enrollments route not to use route chaining in order to decide which SQL query is appropriate to respond the user's request.
    - Implement decorator for API responses and also reduce code duplication.
    - Split up tests into and add more test cases.
