The reusable, scalable, and quick node.js API server for stateless and stateful applications
Please take a moment to fill out our 2020 Developer Survey!
Actionhero is a multi-transport API Server with integrated cluster capabilities and delayed tasks. The goal of actionhero is to create an easy-to-use toolkit for making reusable & scalable APIs for HTTP, WebSockets, and more. Clients connected to an actionhero server can consume the api, consume static content, and communicate with each other. Actionhero is cluster-ready, with built in support for background tasks, 0-downtime deploys, and more. Actionhero provides a simple Async/Await API for managing every type of connection and background task.
Currently actionhero supports the following out of the box...
# Generate a new Project npx actionhero generate npm install npm run build # <--- new! I compile the TS to JS npm run dev # <--- new! I use `ts-node` to let you develop on your ts files without compiling # Use the actionhero CLI (npx) actionhero generate action --name my_action (npx) actionhero generate task --name my_task --queue default --frequency 0 # Test npm test # I'll run `prettier` and `build` for you first # I handle .ts files now! # To deploy your app npm run build # <--- new! I compile the TS to JS npm run start
Your new project will come with example actions, tests, and more.
