    Who is the Actionhero?

    Actionhero is a multi-transport API Server with integrated cluster capabilities and delayed tasks. The goal of actionhero is to create an easy-to-use toolkit for making reusable & scalable APIs for HTTP, WebSockets, and more. Clients connected to an actionhero server can consume the api, consume static content, and communicate with each other. Actionhero is cluster-ready, with built in support for background tasks, 0-downtime deploys, and more. Actionhero provides a simple Async/Await API for managing every type of connection and background task.

    Currently actionhero supports the following out of the box...

    ... and you can also make your own servers and transports.

    Quick Start

    # Generate a new Project
    npx actionhero generate
    npm install
    npm run build
    npm run dev # <-- I automatically notice changes and restart, as well as compiling .ts files
    
    # Use the actionhero CLI
    (npx) actionhero generate action --name my_action
    (npx) actionhero generate task --name my_task --queue default --frequency 0
    
    # Test
    npm test
    
    # To deploy your app
    npm run build
    npm run start

    Your new project will come with example actions, tests, and more.

    Dedication

    Technology is a powerful force in our society. Data, software, and communication can be used for bad: to entrench unfair power structures, to undermine human rights, and to protect vested interests. But they can also be used for good: to make underrepresented people’s voices heard, to create opportunities for everyone, and to avert disasters. This project is dedicated to everyone working toward the good.
