Ever wonder what the fastest web framework is?

In today’s video I’m showing you a GitHub repo that lets you challenge two or more backend frameworks on your command line.

This can be a helpful tool when you’re trying to decide what backend language/framework may be the best for the job.

But don’t worry, I’m also showing you the fastest frontend frameworks as well!

Benchmarks are kinda useless. There will always be something that is faster than your current stack but that doesn't mean you change your stack.
I feel that if I am well versed in X then I will stick with X, rather than shifting to Y to save a few milliseconds.


Remember kids: the fastest JS frontend framework is no frontend framework. Only SPA if you need to 😁


I did a similar comparison at pianomanfrazier.com/post/comparing... I'm wondering why the results of our bundle sizes are so different. Also, I took into account the number of network requests to get the app across the wire.


Nice comparison - thanks for including some new frameworks! I can’t wait to see who the next big player becomes - I’m thinking Svelte/Sapper...


This is really cool! It's quite a trigger to look at Svelte. My only wish would be having the actual comparison text be copied hereto (if you'rethe one who wrote it), rather than pasted as a link. :)
