💌 Write Once, Run Anywhere: write one codebase, run with Web, Weex, Node.js, Alibaba MiniApp, and WeChat MiniProgram. Rax can be used with additional containers that implement it's driver specification.

Fast: better performance and a tiny size(📦~6KB) when compared to React using the same API.

📤 Easy: quick start with zero configuration, all features like Progressive Web App (PWA), Server-Side Rendering (SSR), and Function as a service (FaaS) can be used out of the box.

Quick Start 🥢🍚

Start from command line

Create a new Rax project using create-rax:

$ npm init rax <YourProjectName>

npm init <initializer> is available in npm 6+

Start local server to launch project:

$ cd <YourProjectName>
$ npm install
$ npm run start

Start from VS Code

You need to install the AppWorks Pack and invoke the Create Application command from the VS Code command palette (Ctrl + Shift + P or Cmd + Shift + P on Mac):


Developer Tools 🛠

You can inspect and modify the state of your Rax components at runtime using the Rax Developer Tools browser extension, however the extension will not work in production mode.

  1. Install the Chrome Rax Developer Tools extension
  2. Reload and go to the 'Rax' tab in the browser's development tools
