Getting Started

const app = opine();

app.get("/", function (req, res) {
  res.send("Hello World");
});

app.listen(
  3000,
  () => console.log("server has started on http://localhost:3000 "),
);

Installation

This is a Deno module available to import direct from this repo and via the Deno Registry.

Before importing, download and install Deno.

You can then import Opine straight into your project:

import { opine } from "https://deno.land/x/[email protected]/mod.ts";

Opine is also available on nest.land, a package registry for Deno on the Blockchain.

import { opine } from "https://x.nest.land/[email protected]/mod.ts";

Documentation

Quick Start

The quickest way to get started with Opine is to utilize the Opine CLI to generate an application as shown below:

Install the executable. The executable's major version will match Opine's:

deno install -f -q --allow-read --allow-write --allow-net --unstable https://deno.land/x/[email protected]/opine-cli.ts

And follow any suggestions to update your PATH environment variable.

Create the app:

opine-cli --view=ejs hello-deno && cd hello-deno

Start your Opine app at http://localhost:3000/:

deno run --allow-net --allow-read --allow-env mod.ts

Philosophy

The Express philosophy is to provide small, robust tooling for HTTP servers, making it a great solution for single page applications, web sites, hybrids, or public HTTP APIs.

Opine will aim to achieve these same great goals, focussing first on developing robust tooling and features before moving onto accelerating performance and becoming super lightweight.

As time passes, Opine's goals may naturally diverge from ExpressJS and this will be reflected here.

Examples

To run the examples, you have two choices:

  1. Run the example using Deno directly from GitHub, for example:

    deno run --allow-net --allow-read https://raw.githubusercontent.com/asos-craigmorten/opine/main/examples/hello-world/index.ts
    
  2. Clone the Opine repo locally:

    git clone git://github.com/asos-craigmorten/opine.git --depth 1
    cd opine
    

    Then run the example you want:

    deno run --allow-net --allow-read ./examples/hello-world/index.ts
    

All the examples contain example commands in their READMEs to help get you started for either of the above methods.
