Hono - [炎] means flame🔥 in Japanese - is a small, simple, and ultrafast web framework for Cloudflare Workers, Deno, Bun, and others.

import { Hono } from 'hono'
const app = new Hono()

app.get('/', (c) => c.text('Hono!!'))

export default app


  • Ultrafast - The routers are really smart. Not using linear loops. The fastest one will be selected from three routers.
  • Zero-dependencies - Using only Web Standard API. Does not depend on other npm or Deno libraries.
  • Middleware - Hono has built-in middleware, custom middleware, and third-party middleware. Batteries included.
  • TypeScript - First-class TypeScript support. Now, we've got "Types".
  • Multi-runtime - Works on Cloudflare Workers, Fastly Compute@Edge, Deno, Bun, or Node.js. The same code runs on all platforms.


Hono is fastest, compared to other routers for Cloudflare Workers.

Hono x 616,464 ops/sec ±4.76% (83 runs sampled)
itty-router x 203,074 ops/sec ±3.66% (88 runs sampled)
sunder x 314,306 ops/sec ±2.28% (87 runs sampled)
worktop x 194,111 ops/sec ±2.78% (81 runs sampled)
Fastest is Hono
✨  Done in 30.77s.
