Typetron is a modern Node.js framework, written in Typescript, that allows you to build fully-featured web applications and APIs. Most of the core packages it uses were built from scratch, in Typescript to preserve the performance of the framework.
Typetron aims to have all the features necessary for building any web app possible, so you don’t need to search for a third-party package to add in your project. Almost everything you need is available already in Typetron. Most of the features it has were written from scratch and are available in the framework out of the box. This was done to ensure that all the features you are using benefit from the latest language and platform features. Also, every package can be tuned for performance or updated in no time if needed, by the community.
These are some features Typetron aims to have:
If you think a feature is missing, please create a Github issue, so we can take care of it.
Typetron is still in development, and a roadmap isn’t yet available. You can join the newsletter to get the latest updates.
Being built with packages created from scratch using the latest features of Typescript, Typetron comes with great performance out of the box, compared to other available “batteries-included” frameworks.
Typetron’s source code is built around developer’s expectations: it is modern, clean and beautiful. Also, the tools Typetron is providing are everything a developer needs to build his next awesome project.
A few years ago we wrote websites. Nowadays we write web applications. The web evolved along with the tools we are using. A typical web application is composed of at least two parts: a backend app and a frontend app. This separation led to two different camps that have a very distinct line between them. Typetron aims to give developers tools, so they can make the backend and frontend apps communicate seamlessly.
Typetron was build in Typescript’s strict mode which enforces you to write a more robust code base making your app free of bugs.
