ActionheroThe reusable, scalable, and quick node.js API server for stateless and stateful applications
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...
- Web Clients: HTTP, HTTPS
- Web Socket Clients: HTTP, HTTPS
... and you can also make your own servers and transports.
# 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.

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.Inspired by Martin Kleppmann
