Focus on building your startup,not fighting your framework.

Redwood is the full-stack web framework designed to help you grow from side project to startup.

Start the Tutorial

Our mission is to help more startups
explore more territory, more quickly.

We begin by crafting a more integrated framework, beautifully weaving together the best parts of:

  • React


    We’ve chosen the world’s most popular rendering engine to power Redwood’s web frontend. With React, you’ll have your pick of learning materials, design systems, and trained employees.

  • GraphQL


    As your project grows, so will the number of client apps that need to talk to your backend. With a GraphQL API as your foundation, you can live in a multi-client world with ease.

  • Prisma


    Interacting with your database has never been easier. Prisma’s extremely popular ORM allows you to focus more on your business logic and less on the intricacies of SQL.

  • TypeScript


    Optional TypeScript support gives you the best of JavaScript AND the best of a type system. Even if you build your app in JS, you’ll still get killer autocomplete because Redwood itself is written in TypeScript.

  • Jest


    Sleep well at night knowing that your critical code paths are well tested. Redwood augments Jest with “scenarios” making it easy to setup your database for a given scenario, plus GraphQL mocking to easily test data flow.

  • Storybook


    If you design your components in isolation with Storybook, not only will you never have to fight with your framework to see it in a specific state, but you’ll also build up a comprehensive design reference for free!

On top of the technology, we warmly welcome you to join our community, because going from side project to startup is hard, and nobody should have to do it alone.

Oh, you want to know more about the technology and features? Strap in.
Here’s how you do end-to-end development, the Redwood Way.



Mockup, build and verify components in Storybook, even in complete isolation from the backend. Work on design without worrying about data.

JestTesting LibraryMock Service Worker


Whether it's TDD or DDT, Redwood uses Jest along with mocks and scenarios to verify functionality on the frontend and the backend.


Auth & Security

Lock down your front and backends with your own self-hosted auth or integrate with nearly a dozen third party auth providers. Verify access with RBAC and Validations.

Auth and Security

Data & Transport

When your API is GraphQL you're ready for any client, from the browser to native mobile apps and more. Transform your data with Directives and keep your business logic organized and reusable within Services.

Data & Transport


Deploy your app to serverless hosts like Netlify and Vercel, build for containers, or deploy to bare metal.


When you start with a GraphQL backend server, you'll end up with the only backend you ever need.
We call it: One API to rule them all.

    There's tension between shipping product and building a great development experience for the team. Redwood allows us to focus on product because the development experience is baked in.
