Best Practices

Learn about best practices for developing your app, including routing techniques and library usage.

To develop robust and maintainable apps, it’s important to follow best practices.

Using a Routing Library

If your app’s handleRequest function needs to manage multiple routes or handle complex request logic, it’s advisable to use a routing library like Hono. Hono is a lightweight and fast router for JavaScript and TypeScript, making it an excellent choice for handling routes in a structured way.

Example: Using Hono for Routing

Here’s an example of how you can use Hono to set up routing in your handleRequest function.

  1. Add Hono to your app dependencies: Add “hono” to your app’s dependencies in your package.json file.

  2. Set Up Routing in handleRequest:

    1import {Hono} from 'hono'
    2
    3const app = new Hono()
    4
    5// Define routes
    6app.get('/hello', c => {
    7 return c.text('Hello, world!')
    8})
    9
    10app.post('/data', async c => {
    11 const data = await c.req.json()
    12 // Handle the data
    13 return c.json({message: 'Data received', data})
    14})
    15
    16export default {
    17 async handleRequest({request, ...rest}, ctx) {
    18 return await app.fetch(request, process.env, ctx)
    19 },
    20 // Other handlers...
    21}
