Framework for building monolithic, full-stack React apps without building an API.
The central thesis for Blitz is most apps don't need a REST or GraphQL API. Blitz brings back the simplicity of server rendered frameworks like Ruby on Rails while preserving everything we love about React.
What is Blitz Designed For?
Blitz is designed for tiny to large database-backed applications that have one or more graphical user interfaces.
Web support will be released first, followed by React Native. We are pursuing the dream of a single monolithic application that runs on web and mobile with maximum code sharing and minimal boilerplate.
What are the Foundational Principles?
- Fullstack & Monolithic
- API Not Required
- Convention over Configuration
- Loose Opinions
- Easy to Start, Easy to Scale
- Community over Code
The Blitz Manifesto explains these principles in detail.
