Make infrastructure a type-safe part of your application

Use Encore's Open Source Infrastructure SDK to declare infrastructure as type-safe objects in your program.

Encore parses your code to understand the infrastructure requirements, then automatically sets up both your local environment and cloud environments on AWS/GCP.

No IaC, no YAML, and no headaches.
