🚧 Caution ️ 🚧
CodeEngine is still being developed and should be considered an early beta at this point. It may have bugs and/or performance issues, and we may introduce breaking changes as we solidify the API and functionality.
Code Engine is a highly customizable, plugin-based code generator. It can be used as a build tool, a static site builder, a file processor, or any workflow that entails reading input data, performing a series of transformations on it, and outputing the transformed data.
Plugins can read data from any source (filesystem, database, CMS, etc.), process it in any way (compile code, compress images, render templates, etc.), and then output the data to any destination.
CodeEngine is truly multi-threaded, so it takes full advantage of your multi-core CPU to process multiple files concurrently.
CodeEngine watches your source files for changes and automatically re-builds only what needs to be re-built based on the changes.
for await...of, etc. CodeEngine even natively supports TypeScript - no compilation step needed!
CodeEngine plugins are pure functions that can easily be chained together in different ways to accomplish amazing things.
