What should I use to build my new project?

This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on dev.to

Our great sponsors
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • OPS - Build and Run Open Source Unikernels
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • Strapi

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

    As I mentioned, the choices are very broad with monoliths. From straight-up CMS forms like Keystone, Ghost (which has a focus on building an audience and membership), Strapi, Payload and Apostrophe to full-blown frameworks such as -Express, Meteor (hi Scott), Nest or Blitz.

  • redwood

    The App Framework for Startups

    Otherwise if you want a framework to build on, there's Redwood (which works particularly well on Netlify and Vercel) or Webiny (for AWS, Azure and others).

  • SonarQube

    Static code analysis for 29 languages.. Your projects are multi-language. So is SonarQube analysis. Find Bugs, Vulnerabilities, Security Hotspots, and Code Smells so you can release quality code every time. Get started analyzing your projects today for free.

  • payload

    Headless CMS and Application Framework built with TypeScript, Node.js, React and MongoDB

    As I mentioned, the choices are very broad with monoliths. From straight-up CMS forms like Keystone, Ghost (which has a focus on building an audience and membership), Strapi, Payload and Apostrophe to full-blown frameworks such as -Express, Meteor (hi Scott), Nest or Blitz.

  • Nuxt.js

    The Intuitive Vue(2) Framework

    In the Vue world, there are plenty of choices, from the more low-level Nuxt, to Gridsome, which has a plugin ecosystem and build-time GraphQL API.

  • Next.js

    The React Framework

    Similarly, Gatsby or NextJS are React frameworks. Gatsby has a large plugin ecosystem and GraphQL build-time API, whereas NextJS has a more low-level approach, you source data yourself, and plugins are scarce and likely not officially supported.

  • Nest

    A progressive Node.js framework for building efficient, scalable, and enterprise-grade server-side applications on top of TypeScript & JavaScript (ES6, ES7, ES8) 🚀

    As I mentioned, the choices are very broad with monoliths. From straight-up CMS forms like Keystone, Ghost (which has a focus on building an audience and membership), Strapi, Payload and Apostrophe to full-blown frameworks such as -Express, Meteor (hi Scott), Nest or Blitz.

  • SvelteKit

    The fastest way to build Svelte apps (by sveltejs)

    If you're focus is performance, and you need client-side routing, check out SvelteKit. Rather than shipping your framework to the frontend, SvelteKit compiles to pure JavaScript. But it still hydrates all of what you can see on your screen, meaning it's not as performant as Astro can be.

  • 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.

  • KeystoneJS

    The most powerful headless CMS for Node.js — built with GraphQL and React

    As I mentioned, the choices are very broad with monoliths. From straight-up CMS forms like Keystone, Ghost (which has a focus on building an audience and membership), Strapi, Payload and Apostrophe to full-blown frameworks such as -Express, Meteor (hi Scott), Nest or Blitz.

  • Gridsome

    ⚡️ The Jamstack framework for Vue.js

    In the Vue world, there are plenty of choices, from the more low-level Nuxt, to Gridsome, which has a plugin ecosystem and build-time GraphQL API.

  • Ghost

    Turn your audience into a business. Publishing, memberships, subscriptions and newsletters.

    As I mentioned, the choices are very broad with monoliths. From straight-up CMS forms like Keystone, Ghost (which has a focus on building an audience and membership), Strapi, Payload and Apostrophe to full-blown frameworks such as -Express, Meteor (hi Scott), Nest or Blitz.

  • Express

    Fast, unopinionated, minimalist web framework for node.

    As I mentioned, the choices are very broad with monoliths. From straight-up CMS forms like Keystone, Ghost (which has a focus on building an audience and membership), Strapi, Payload and Apostrophe to full-blown frameworks such as -Express, Meteor (hi Scott), Nest or Blitz.

  • astro

    Build fast websites, faster. 🚀🧑‍🚀✨

    Astro, a newcomer on the scene, does client-side routing via it's Collections API, other than that it's HTML all the way baby. I'm particularly fond of Astro because you can use whatever frontend framework you want.

  • ApostropheCMS

    Apostrophe is a full-featured, open-source CMS built with Node.js that empowers organizations by combining in-context editing and headless architecture in a full-stack JS environment.

    As I mentioned, the choices are very broad with monoliths. From straight-up CMS forms like Keystone, Ghost (which has a focus on building an audience and membership), Strapi, Payload and Apostrophe to full-blown frameworks such as -Express, Meteor (hi Scott), Nest or Blitz.
