The Fullstack React Framework
"Zero-API" Data Layer — Built on Next.js — Inspired by Ruby on Rails
Makes you far more productive than you ever dreamed was possible
“Zero-API” data layer lets you import server code directly into your React components instead of having to manually add API endpoints and do client-side fetching and caching.
Includes everything you need for production apps. Everything end-to-end from the database to the frontend.
Blitz brings back the simplicity and conventions of server-rendered frameworks like Ruby on Rails while preserving everything we love about React and client-side rendering!
You need Node.js 12 or newer
npm install -g blitz or
yarn global add blitz
You can alternatively use
Create a New App
blitz new myAppName
- View your baby app at http://localhost:3000
Other key features coming:
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.
What is Blitz Designed For?
Blitz is designed for tiny to large database-backed applications that have one or more graphical user interfaces.
While we currently only support web, we are pursuing the dream of a single monolithic application that runs on web and mobile with maximum code sharing and minimal boilerplate.
