Encore for TypeScript - Open Source Backend SDK & Rust runtime for Node.js

Day 1 of Launch Week is finally here and we're kicking things of with a big one...

Encore for TypeScript is now available and ready for production use!

You can now use Encore's simple experience for building event-driven and distributed system, in TypeScript.

It's based on a new Open Source Backend SDK that provides a declarative way of building services, APIs, and using cloud primitives like databases, Pub/Sub, cron jobs, and more.

Encore for TypeScript is powered by our new Rust-based runtime, integrated with Node.js for 100% compatability the Node ecosystem. It provides some major upgrades compared to standard Node.js/Express:

  • 7x faster throughput (req/s)
  • 85% reduced response latency
  • 0 NPM dependencies
  • End-to-end type-safety even at runtime

Tune in for Launch Week

Runtime type safety will elevate TS to be on level with classic statically typed languages! I was always missing this feature and had to write a separate validator to make sure what's in TS is actually coming in from the user.

Great job folks!

Can it be used as a replacement for nginx-node reverse proxy server?
Should I expect 85% reduced response latency?
