advantages of using fastify?

  • 100% asynchronous: all the core is implemented with asynchronous code, in this way not even a millisecond is wasted.
  • highly performant: as far as we know, fastify is one of the fastest web frameworks in town, depending on the code complexity we can serve up to 20000 requests per second.
  • extendible: fastify is fully extensible via its hooks, plugins, and decorators.

why do we need a generator?

to scaffold applications quicker we need a generator to provide us with a basic useful template on which we can expand based on our requirements.

& so comes fastify-typescript-generator

  • using typescript in our templates for better coding standards & attain all the other benefits of typescript.
  • providing a template for people familiar with express
  • providing a template for people wanting to familiarize themselves with the concept of fastify and it’s the plugin system.
  • providing templates with the option to choose between mongoose (a well known MongoDB driver in node.js world supporting schema) & TypeORM which is an ORM that can be used to connect to various SQL as well as MongoDB database (MongoDB connection in BETA) & work with them built specifically keeping typescript in mind.
  • some templates have OpenAPI (previously Swagger) implementation
