    Melonpan is a simple and minimalistic web-router designed to work with Bun, keeping performance in mind.

    🤔 Why Melonpan?

    • no/minimal learning curve
    • Developer focused, you just need to focus on buisness logic
    • 0 bloat functions
    • 0 dependencies
    • 100% Typescript code
    • Blazing fast performance than node webframework alternatives

    ⚡️ Quickstart

    import { Melonpan, MelonRouter } from "melonpan";
    const melonpan = new Melonpan();
    // Simple middleware definitions
    melonpan.middleware((_req, ctx, next) => {
        console.log("A middleware has been hit!")
    // Easy query params parsing!
    melonpan.get("/api/:id", (_req, ctx) => {
        return ctx.json({"id":}, 200);
    // Routing done in very simple manner
    melonpan.get("/" , (_req, ctx) => ctx.text("Hello world!"));
    // Easy definitions of routers and handlers!
    const melonRouter = new MelonRouter();
    melonRouter.get("/bar", (_req, ctx) => ctx.text("this is a router", 200));
    melonpan.use("/foo", melonRouter);
    export default {
        port: 3000,
        fetch(req: Request){
            return melonpan.serve(req);
