  • picohttpparser

    tiny HTTP parser written in C (used in HTTP::Parser::XS et al.)

    Just-js is not nodejs framework. It's sperate runtime and most of the http code is written using c/c++ (for example headers parsing logic is written using c and is using https://github.com/h2o/picohttpparser which is c library)

  • just

    a very small v8 javascript runtime for linux only (by just-js)

    Looking at the repository, it seems that just-js is a full on Node replacement, but at a very low level. It's basically a thin wrapper over Linux APIs and doesn't implement many abstractions; you're essentially writing C in JS. V8 is well optimized, so this result is not exactly surprising to me. The speed comes at the cost of maintainability (no zero cost abstractions), ecosystem (no Node.js compatibility) and possibly safety (very low level APIs and no sandboxing).

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • ntex

    framework for composable networking services

    ntex is a fork of actix by the previous maintainer https://github.com/ntex-rs/ntex/blob/b0aa9395daf6e76c28a6216831b030e7713c662a/Cargo.toml
