The Fullstack React Framework

"Zero-API" Data Layer — Built on Next.js — Inspired by Ruby on Rails

“Zero-API” data layer lets you import server code directly into your React components instead of having to manually add API endpoints and do client-side fetching and caching.

New Blitz apps come with all the boring stuff already set up for you! Like ESLint, Prettier, Jest, user sign up, log in, and password reset.

Provides helpful defaults and conventions for things like routing, file structure, and authentication while also being extremely flexible.

What is Blitz Designed For?

Blitz is designed for tiny to large database-backed applications that have one or more graphical user interfaces.

While we currently only support web, we are pursuing the dream of a single monolithic application that runs on web and mobile with maximum code sharing and minimal boilerplate.
