CLOUDFLARE-OPEN SOURCE COMMUNITY TEAM-UP CREATES API STANDARDS FOR FUTURE APPLICATIONS

KUALA LUMPUR, May 10 (Bernama) -- Cloudflare Inc has announced 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.

According to a statement, 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 co-founder and CEO of Cloudflare, Matthew Prince.

“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 organisations 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.”

Cloudflare, Deno, and Node.js represent three of the largest JavaScript environments available to developers today.

With this effort, developers will benefit from common standards, so they can easily work across all environments based on the needs of their business and have confidence that their code will work for users today, and in the future.

The Web-interoperable Runtimes Community Group is working with leading organisations including NearForm and Vercel to ensure that developers’ voices were heard in the creation of a new community group working within existing standards bodies.

The API Standards allow developers to use the best tool or framework for the job; have a uniform approach to writing server side code; and, move applications as technology needs change.

Headquartered in San Francisco, CA, Cloudflare Inc is on a mission to help build a better Internet. More details at www.cloudflare.com.
