The next-gen web framework.

Fresh is a web framework that lets you build projects very fast, highly dynamic, and without the need of a build step. Fresh embraces isomorphic JavaScript like never before. Write a JSX component, have it render on the edge just-in-time, and then enhance it with client side JS for great interactivity.

Fresh does not have a build step - you write your code, deploy it to Deno Deploy, and from there everything is handled by the framework.

  • No build step
  • Zero config necessary
  • JIT rendering on the edge
  • Tiny (example is 0-3KB of runtime JS)1
  • Optional client side hydration
  • TypeScript out of the box
  • File-system routing à la Next.js


The documentation is available on

Getting started

You can scaffold a new project by running the Fresh init script. To scaffold a project in the myproject folder, run the following:

deno run -A my-project

To now start the project, use deno task:

deno task start

To deploy the script to Deno Deploy, push your project to GitHub, create a Fresh project, and link it to main.ts file in the created repository.

For a more in-depth getting started guide, visit the Getting Started page in the Fresh docs.
