Projects in Netzo are programmed using Deno. In essence, a project consist of collections of static files that are automatically hosted by netzo. Each Project is deployed to its own unique URL and ran globally at the network edge when an HTTP Request is made to its URL.

What is Deno?

Deno is a simple, modern and secure runtime for JavaScript and TypeScript that uses V8 and is built in Rust. It is designed to be a productive and performant tool for writing server-side applications in JavaScript and TypeScript. Some key features of Deno include:

  • Builds on the Web: use fetch, WebSocket, or URL just like in the browser

  • Built-in support for TypeScript and JSX: type safe code, and intuitive server-side rendering without a build step

  • Web compatible ES modules: import dependencies just like in a browser, without the need for explicit installation

  • Extremely fast: deploy in less than a second, serve globally close to users

  • Deploy from URL: deploy code with nothing more than a URL
