    🚧 Caution ‍️🚧

    CodeEngine is still being developed and should be considered an early beta at this point. It may have bugs and/or performance issues, and we may introduce breaking changes as we solidify the API and functionality.


    Code Engine is a highly customizable, plugin-based code generator. It can be used as a build tool, a static site builder, a file processor, or any workflow that entails reading input data, performing a series of transformations on it, and outputing the transformed data.

    • 🔌 Plugable
      Plugins can read data from any source (filesystem, database, CMS, etc.), process it in any way (compile code, compress images, render templates, etc.), and then output the data to any destination.

    • 🚀 Fast
      CodeEngine is truly multi-threaded, so it takes full advantage of your multi-core CPU to process multiple files concurrently.

    • 👁 Incremental Re-Builds
      CodeEngine watches your source files for changes and automatically re-builds only what needs to be re-built based on the changes.

    • Modern
      CodeEngine uses bleeding-edge JavaScript features, so you can write plugins using the latest JavaScript syntax, including async/await, for await...of, etc. CodeEngine even natively supports TypeScript - no compilation step needed!

    • 🧩 Functional
      CodeEngine plugins are pure functions that can easily be chained together in different ways to accomplish amazing things.


    Install using npm. Add the -g flag to install globally so you can run CodeEngine from any terminal window.

    npm install -g code-engine
