Top 17 JavaScript Koa Projects

  • GitHub repo Strapi

    🚀 Open source Node.js Headless CMS to easily build customisable APIs

    Project mention: Automating deployments in Vercel when Strapi content is updated | | 2022-01-21

    You would need to have a Vercel account with an application deployed on it and a Strapi application setup either running locally or on some hosting service.

  • GitHub repo Koa

    Expressive middleware for node.js using ES2017 async functions

    Project mention: Koa vs Express | | 2022-01-06

    Philosophically, Koa aims to "fix and replace node", whereas Express "augments node". Koa uses promises and async functions to rid apps of callback hell and simplify error handling. It exposes its own ctx.request and ctx.response objects instead of node's req and res objects.

  • OPS

    OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels. Quickly and easily build and deploy open source unikernels in tens of seconds. Deploy in any language to any cloud.

    Project mention: A good way to start exploring APIs (for beginners) | | 2021-10-19

    I like this unofficial SpaceX API. I am using it in examples for API-related tutorials and to train less experience technical personnel. Works like a charm so far :)

  • GitHub repo Grant

  • GitHub repo rate-limiter-flexible

    Node.js rate limit requests by key with atomic increments in single process or distributed environment.

    I published this issue with my code:

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

  • GitHub repo graphql-upload

    Middleware and an Upload scalar to add support for GraphQL multipart requests (file uploads via queries and mutations) to various Node.js GraphQL servers.

    Project mention: How do you upload a file to Apollo server? | | 2021-10-02
  • GitHub repo session

    Simple session middleware for koa (by koajs)

    Project mention: JWT should not be your default for sessions | | 2021-05-10

    Frameworks usually sign cookies by default, or at least offer an option to do so. Some (like Ruby on Rails) can encrypt them for you too. There's nothing really stopping you from storing data in them just like you would a JWT. In fact, frameworks and session libraries often use this cookie storage by default (even in the Node ecosystem, e.g: koa-session, express cookie-session), since an in-memory store can grow to an arbitrary size. Of course, you can also just store a JWT in a cookie, which has the advantage of being standardized in terms of claims and signing algorithms etc.

  • GitHub repo koa-views

    Template rendering middleware for koa (hbs, swig, pug, anything! :sparkles:)

  • GitHub repo koa-hbs

    Handlebars templates for Koa.js

  • GitHub repo objection-authorize

    isomorphic, "magical" authorization integration with Objection.js 🎉

  • GitHub repo puresql

    ES6/7 ready SQL library for node.js inspired by Clojure's yesql

    Project mention: Puresql – A yesql inspired Node SQL library | | 2021-04-05
  • GitHub repo aws-serverless-koa

    This library enables you to utilize AWS Lambda and Amazon API Gateway to respond to web and API requests using the Koa.js application framework

    Project mention: Apollo GraphQL confusion - Koa OR Lambda?? | | 2021-04-08

    Koa has a Lambda handler package (, and so you should be able to serve anything that plugs into Koa as a middleware (i.e. apollo-server-koa) through your function handler instead. As for your other question about reasonability, I don't have much to offer without knowing your reasoning behind the stack in the first place as opposed to other potential managed database-GraphQL-combo options like Dgraph (Slash GraphQL) or Hasura Cloud or FaunaDB. If the resolver logic you need can't be handled by one of those services, I might wonder whether a Lambda GraphQL endpoint is the best fit in the first place, but your context could render that concern moot.

  • GitHub repo i18n

    i18n wrapper and Koa middleware for Lad (by ladjs)

    Project mention: Ask HN: Those making $500/month on side projects in 2021 – Show and tell | | 2021-12-23

    It actually doesn't determine it by the country the request is coming from.

    How it works is fully documented here:

    1) Check URL (e.g. if /de or /de/ then it's a de locale - as long as de is a supported locale)
