Hono - [炎] means flame🔥 in Japanese - is a small, simple, and ultrafast web framework for the Edge. It works on Cloudflare Workers, Fastly Compute@Edge, Deno, Bun, Vercel, Lagon, Node.js, and others. Fast, but not only fast.

import { Hono } from 'hono'
const app = new Hono()

app.get('/', (c) => c.text('Hono!'))

export default app

Quick Start

npm create hono@latest my-app


  • Ultrafast - The routers are really fast and smart. Not using linear loops. Fast.
  • Multi-runtime - Works on Cloudflare Workers, Fastly Compute@Edge, Deno, Bun, Lagon, or Node.js. The same code runs on all platforms.
  • Batteries Included - Hono has built-in middleware, custom middleware, and third-party middleware. Batteries included.
  • Delightful DX - First-class TypeScript support. Now, we've got "Types".
  • Small - About 20kB. Zero-dependencies. Using only Web Standard API.
