Cloudflare teams up with open-source community to create new API standards for future applications

CloudMore News

Cloudflare, the security, performance, and reliability company helping to build a better Internet, has announced that it is collaborating with Deno and individual core contributors of the Node.js open-source project, bringing together three of the largest JavaScript environments, to give developers flexibility and choice while creating the standards of the future of Edge Computing.

By collaborating around a common set of standards, the effort will aim to ensure code developed in one environment will work in another. Any developer will be able to write and run code conforming to the set of standards–and easily transfer it – between Cloudflare Workers, Deno and Node.js seamlessly and without the need to rewrite an application.

“Cloudflare Workers has helped to define the standard for Edge Computing. Since 2017, more than 450,000 developers have built on Cloudflare’s developer platform and more than three million applications have been launched,” said Matthew Prince, Co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare.

“But we know we’re not going to be the only one. We think that standards are important to driving the industry forward. That’s why we’re proud to be working with these other organizations in the serverless computing space to help define the standard for edge – what we believe will be the standard by which the applications of the future are developed.”
