Deno on Fresh 1.4 Adds FTL Drives 🚀

I hereby confirm Fresh 1.4's perf-improvements are legit!

Fresh 1.1

❯ wrk -t12 -c400 -d10s
Running 10s test @
  12 threads and 400 connections
Requests/sec:    121.80 👈
Enter fullscreen mode Exit fullscreen mode

Fresh 1.4.2

❯ wrk -t8 -c500 -d10s
Running 10s test @
  8 threads and 500 connections
  Thread Stats   Avg      Stdev     Max   +/- Stdev
    Latency    27.93ms   38.66ms 514.91ms   93.96%
    Req/Sec     1.34k     0.98k    3.60k    65.40%
  105725 requests in 10.07s, 19.96MB read
  Socket errors: connect 253, read 0, write 0, timeout 0
Requests/sec:  10495.36 👈 🚀 🚀 🚀 🚀

That jives with the numbers here, where Fresh placed second-fastest framework.

Lighthouse Score

Equally incredible!

Lighthouse Score

Hosted on a free account at Deno Deploy. Imagine what the numbers would be on Enterprise-class infra. This means we finally have Fire-and-Forget websites, because a single Node is able to handle a 10X more traffic than your Ruby/Node/Python ones. No more scrambling to scale every 8 weeks, after your team launches 1.0, having to answer pages at 3 AM because your Scripting-Language just collapsed at 500 R/s, then again at 1,000 2 mo later, then 1,500 2 mos later, then 2,000, then 2,500, etc.

Our Rust boxes never trigger PagerDuty.

I'm really pleased with the whole Deno experience, from toolset, to perf, to pkg mgmnt, to sensible defaults, to the TypeScript Std Lib that's bundled, to the Edge-First global deployment you get free.
