    Explore a library of reference examples for learning about Edge Functions on Netlify.

    Phil Hawksworth and I put together an Edge Functions Examples site for you to explore the APIs and functionality available to you on Netlify. You can also browse the source code on GitHub, fork the repository, or copy and paste code examples to your project.

  • deno

    A modern runtime for JavaScript and TypeScript.

    Edge Functions are very much like serverless functions. You can write them using JavaScript or TypeScript, but instead of using Node.js under the hood, they are powered by Deno — an open source runtime built on web standards. With Netlify Edge Functions, you can transform HTTP Requests and Responses, stream server rendered content, and even run full server side rendered applications at The Edge!

  • 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!

  • cli

    Netlify Command Line Interface (by netlify)

    Note: You might see a red underline under the type import if you're using VS Code. The Edge Function will still execute, but if you'd like to say goodbye to the red line, run ntl recipes vscode in your terminal. This will install a VS Code settings directory and JSON file at the root of your project. Read more about Netlify recipes on the CLI docs.
