What is Tuft?


Tuft is a web framework for Node.js that has been designed to provide excellent routing performance, even while serving thousands of routes. Its feature set is deliberately kept to a minimum, which means only a small amount of overhead is added to each HTTP transaction. However, there are mechanisms in place to extend the functionality of Tuft should it be required.

Tuft originally started as a project to improve my own understanding of Node.js in early 2019. When I first started, I knew how to create an application with Express, but had only a minimal understanding of the underlying Node.js processes. I have learned a great deal about Node.js via my work on this project and have since gone on to be awarded certifications as both a Node.js Application Developer and Node.js Services Developer.

While Tuft is purely a personal project of mine, I have written it with the intention that it could be used in a production environment. However, as it has not been thoroughly tested, this is not recommended. Please feel free to play around with it and try creating some test applications using Tuft. There are no doubt issues that I cannot, or would not, be able to find on my own.
