Hono - [炎] means flame🔥 in Japanese - is a small, simple, and ultrafast web framework for Cloudflare Workers, Deno, Bun, and others.

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

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

export default app


  • Ultrafast - the router does not use linear loops.
  • Zero-dependencies - using only Service Worker and Web Standard API.
  • Middleware - built-in middleware, custom middleware, and third-party middleware.
  • TypeScript - first-class TypeScript support.
  • Multi-platform - works on Cloudflare Workers, Fastly Compute@Edge, Deno, or Bun.
