Rakkas.js 0.2.1 is out

I'm pleased to announce version 0.2.1 of Rakkas, “the dancing web framework” which aims to unite a Next.js-inspired development experience with Vite's blazing speed. Please check it out, all kinds of feedback are most welcome. It's not production-ready yet but many features have been implemented:

  • Hassle-free server-side rendering
  • File system-based routing with dynamic routes, nested layouts, and thematic layout groups
  • SPA-style client-side router
  • Simple but effective data fetching system
  • API routes to build API endpoints and middleware

This new version brings:

  • Project initializer (npm init rakkas-app)
  • Hot reloading for pages and layouts
  • More robust body parser which now supports application/x-www-form-urlencoded in addition to plain text and JSON
  • New website domain:
  • Bug fixes
  • Performance and package size improvements

And short term goals incude:

  • Static site generation
  • Optional data caching
  • Support for serverless environments
  • Localizable and customizable router
