Why HappyX? 💁‍♀️

HappyX is a web framework with asynchronous, macro-oriented, full stack support.

In HappyX you can write single page, static site generation and server side rendering applications 💡

You can write Rest API with HappyX also 🔌

HappyX is very simple to use. Keep your peace of mind 🙂

Why Not Jester/Karax? 🤔

Jester and Karax have many features, but Jester is a backend web framework, and Karax is a frontend web framework. HappyX is a full-stack web framework that combines the features of Jester and Karax and slightly improves them 🛠

With HappyX you mustn't learn new libraries/frameworks to switch between frontend and backend. You can switch between them easily using HappyX ✌

HappyX is macro-oriented web framework so you mustn't write a lot of code ✨
