Hono: Hono on Node.js

I showed you how to use Hono with Bun.

You can also use Node.js.

During the installation process of bunx create-hono <app-name>, pick the nodejs template:

Then go in that folder and install the dependencies with npm i.

Open the src/index.ts file in VS Code.

Compared to Bun, you see we need to import serve from @hono/node-server, and call it at the end, while with Bun you just have to export app and Bun takes care of everything:

import { serve } from '@hono/node-server'
import { Hono } from 'hono'

const app = new Hono()
app.get('/', (c) => c.text('Hello Hono!'))


Now run npm run start in your terminal to run Hono.
