Encore is the backend development engine built on the belief that escaping complexity unleashes a higher state of creativity.

· Edit

Encore makes it incredibly simple to create distributed systems, backend services and APIs. While still deploying to your own cloud account, Encore helps you escape the maze of cloud complexity: - No endless repetition of boilerplate - No infrastructure to worry about - No reinventing the wheel

Start building with a fantastic flow-state experience that unlocks your creative potential. All of this is freely available, based on the Open Source Encore Go Framework.

The key features of Encore are:

No boilerplate: Encore drastically reduces the boilerplate needed to set up a production ready backend application. Define backend services, API endpoints, and call APIs with a single line of Go code.

Distributed Tracing: Encore instruments your application for excellent observability. Automatically captures information about API calls, goroutines, HTTP requests, database queries, and more. Automatically works for local development as well as in production.

Infrastructure Provisioning: Encore automatically provisions and manages your cloud infrastructure. Works with all the major cloud providers and you deploy to your own account (AWS/Azure/GCP).

Simple Secrets: Easily store and securely use secrets and API keys. Never worry about how to store and get access to secret values again.

Generated API Documentation: Encore parses your source code to understand the schemas for all your APIs and automatically generate interactive API Documentation.
