Hono - [炎] means flame🔥 in Japanese - is a small, simple, and ultrafast web framework for the Edges. It works on any JavaScript runtime: Cloudflare Workers, Fastly Compute, Deno, Bun, Vercel, AWS Lambda, Lambda@Edge, and Node.js.

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


  • Ultrafast 🚀 - The router RegExpRouter is really fast. Not using linear loops. Fast.
  • Lightweight 🪶 - The hono/tiny preset is under 13kB. Hono has zero dependencies and uses only the Web Standard API.
  • Multi-runtime 🌍 - Works on Cloudflare Workers, Fastly Compute, Deno, Bun, AWS Lambda, Lambda@Edge, 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 😃 - Super clean APIs. First-class TypeScript support. Now, we’ve got “Types”.
