Cloudflare teams up with open-source community to create new API standards for future applications

Cloudflare , the security , performance , and reliability company helping to build a better Internet , has announced that it is collaborating with Deno and individual core contributors of the Node . js open-source project , bringing together three of the largest JavaScript environments , to give developers flexibility and choice while creating the standards of the future of Edge Computing .

2017 , more than 450,000 developers have built on Cloudflare ’ s developer platform and more than three million applications have been launched ,” said Matthew Prince , Cofounder and CEO of Cloudflare . “ But we know we ’ re not going to be the only one . We think that standards are important to driving the industry forward . That ’ s why we ’ re proud to be working with these other organizations in the serverless computing space to help define the standard for edge – what we believe will be the standard by which the applications of the future are developed .”
By collaborating around a common set of standards , the effort will aim to ensure code developed in one environment will work in another . Any developer will be able to write and run code conforming to the set of standards – and easily transfer it – between Cloudflare Workers , Deno and Node . js seamlessly and without the need to rewrite an application .
