The future of Node.js REST development

Meet restify

A Node.js web service framework optimized for building semantically correct RESTful web services ready for production use at scale. restify optimizes for introspection and performance, and is used in some of the largest Node.js deployments on Earth.

Production Ready

restify is used by some of the industry's most respected companies to power some of the largest deployments of Node.js on planet Earth.


Running at scale requires the ability to trace problems back to their origin by separating noise from signal. restify is built from the ground up with post-mortem debugging in mind.

Semantically Correct

Staying true to the spec is one of the foremost goals of the project. You will see references to RFCs littered throughout GitHub issues and the codebase.
