HarperDB is Collapsing the Stack: Introducing Custom Functions

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

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • Scout APM - Less time debugging, more time building
  • SonarLint - Clean code begins in your IDE with SonarLint
  • fastify

    Fast and low overhead web framework, for Node.js

    What makes Custom Functions so powerful? They leverage the full power of Node.js and Fastify. HarperDB Custom Functions projects are effectively just Node.js projects, which means you can leverage the npm ecosystem, opening the doors to fast and efficient development. Fastify serves as the basis for the webserver, which means you can define and build a fully functional REST API with all the bells and whistles you’d expect. The key differentiator is that these Fastify routes have direct access to HarperDB core methods, bypassing the HarperDB API, and instead interacting directly with HarperDB on the same machine.

  • node

    Node.js JavaScript runtime :sparkles::turtle::rocket::sparkles:
