DEITY Falcon - build back-end agnostic headless PWA websites

Codacy Badge Build Status License: OSL-3.0 Blazing Fast lerna code style: prettier

Introduction

DEITY Falcon is a platform agnostic, stand-alone but modular library to easily build headless PWA websites.

Falcon was built with the F.I.R.E. principal in mind:

  • Flexible - Allow you to build any kind of website; e-commerce, blogs, portfolio's, you name it
  • Integrable - Allow you to integrate any kind of data source with it
  • Reliable - You do not have to worry about high traffic and scalability
  • Extensible - Allow you to extend your project with as many custom features as necessary

Why should you use Falcon

  • You can work separately and independently on the front or back-end - save crucial development time
  • Get started within a couple minutes using our CLI tool create-falcon-app
  • Client rendering (SPA) to increase pagespeed and reduce server load
  • Server Side Rendering (SSR) built-in - no longer do you have to worry about SPA SEO complications
  • Service worker to provide application caching and PWA features such as offline capabilities and add to homescreen
  • Falcon's architecture allows it to be very modular, lightweight and scalable

These are just a couple of advantages and use-cases, feel free to ask anything in the official slack channel slack.deity.io
