Encore is my 1st choice for any backend development. Did quite a bit of work with Encore over the past winter, and I absolutely love it. Well worth your time checking it out.

Saw the demo of Encore this weekend... Absolutely blown away. Makes infrastructure as code looks like a piece of cake.

I was super impressed by @_eandre's new backend framework Encore - you add some "decorators" and the framework takes care of everything.

This is rad.

Here's how it works.

The big drawback of building for the cloud is crippling complexity. Encore offers a simple and produtive experience from local development to production.


Use any function as an API

Write plain and portable Go code with the Encore framework. Free from boilerplate and repetitions. Turn your functions into APIs by adding a single annotation.

  • Native REST support
  • 66% Less code needed
  • Extensive auto-complete
Encore annotation


Multiple services as easy as creating Go packages

Encore turns any Go package into its own service, and manages the infrastructure.

  • Call APIs as functions
  • Microservices natively supported
  • Compile-time checking


The features you need, all natively supported

Encore takes care of databases, secrets, logging, tracing, and much more. So you can focus on your ideas.

  • PostreSQL databases
  • Secrets management
  • Distributed tracing
  • Automatic API documentation
