RedwoodJS is a full-stack, open-source JavaScript framework for building web applications. It was launched in 2020 by Tom Preston-Werner, a GitHub co-founder. Redwood uses a unique combination of established technologies:

  • The front-end is built with React, a popular JavaScript library for building user interfaces.
  • For the back-end, Redwood uses GraphQL, a query language for APIs that allows you to request specific data and aggregate responses from multiple sources.
  • It utilizes Prisma as an Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) solution to manage the database layer. Prisma helps developers build performant and safe database access.
  • React Router. Redwood's router is declarative, built on the idea of "routes as a first-class concept."'
  • TypeScript
  • Jest
  • Storybook

At a high level, RedwoodJS has two main parts:

  1. The Back-End. This is a GraphQL API built with Prisma and Apollo (GraphQL) Server. Prisma is used for database access, and Apollo Server is used to create the GraphQL server.
  2. The Front-End. This is a React application that's built with several libraries like Apollo Client (for fetching data from the GraphQL API), React Router (for routing), and Jest (for testing).

Some Discoveries
