Elysia is designed to be modular and lightweight.

Following the same idea as Arch Linux (btw, I use Arch):

Design decisions are made on a case-by-case basis through developer consensus

To ensure that developers endup with performant web server they intent to created.

That's why Elysia is creating pre-built common pattern plugin for convinient usage for developers:

Official plugins:

  • Bearer - retreiving Bearer token.
  • Cookie - get/set cookie
  • CORS - handle CORS request
  • Cron - running cron
  • Eden - fully type-safe client for Elysia server
  • GraphQL Apollo - using GraphQL Apollo with Elysia
  • GraphQL Yoga - using GraphQL Yoga with Elysia
  • HTML - shorthand returning HTML
  • JWT - authenticating with JWT
  • Static - serve static file/folders
  • Swagger - generate Swagger on fly
  • tRPC - add tRPC support
  • WebSocket - websocket support

Community plugins:

  • OAuth2 - handle OAuth 2.0 authorization code flow
  • Rate Limit - simple lightweight rate limiter

If you have plugin written for Elysia, feels free to share you plugin by creating PR to documentation repo.
