Deno Weekly logo

awesome-deno: A Curated List of Things Related to Deno — What is an open source community without its own awesome-... list? This budding list, now seemingly forked by the official Deno GitHub org, has over 150 things to enjoy.


Deno 1.0.1 Released — What would a 1.0 release be without the obligatory .1 release shortly thereafter? :-) A great opportunity to fix a variety of bugs found both in the runtime and the standard library.

Deno Land

deno-lambda: A Deno Runtime Layer for AWS Lambda — Take Deno serverless on AWS Lambda with this. Here’s the layer if you want to get started quickly (I had a basic Lambda function of my own up in a couple of minutes to test it out).

Andy Hayden

Writing Your First Deno Server in 60 Lines — If you’ve followed the example on the Deno homepage you’ve done it in 6 lines already 😏 Luckily, this goes into a little more depth on doing something useful and using Oak for some structure.

Nick Scialli

▶  Building a REST API with Deno, MongoDB and Oak — Deno tutorials are a bit thin on the ground right now, but if you prefer screencasts, this 28 minute video covers a fair bit of ground.

Code and Tools

Deno Docker: Latest Dockerfiles and Images for Deno — v1.0 is out supporting, surprise surprise, Deno 1.0. Grab some Docker files here covering Alpine Linux, CentOS, Debian and Ubuntu.

Andy Hayden

deno_mongodb 0.7: A MongoDB Driver for Deno — Curiously it’s based upon the official Rust MongoDB driver. I’m curious to see what effects Rust has on Deno taking a different approach to Node in situations like this.


Deno-SendGrid: An Early Library for Sending Email with SendGrid — We don’t use this (yet), but we do use SendGrid for sending our newsletters :-)

Greg Pasquariello

Deno Slugify: A String Slugifier — For example: some string becomes some-string. It copes with certain Unicode symbols too. The code is an example of a pretty tight module.

Jose Cardama

deno-redis 0.10.0: A Redis Client for Deno — Though do note it’s still referred to as experimental!

Yusuke Sakurai

Dinatra: A Sinatra-Like Web App Library for Deno — Ruby’s Sinatra was the original inspiration for Express.js too.


Cac: A Framework for Building Command-Line Apps — This project is years old, and the interesting part is that it now supports Deno while remaining a Node project.


Useful Resources

We're going to keep some links to perennially useful posts and resources down here just while everyone is getting up to speed with the Deno community. There's nothing new here, so if you want to skip them – no problem! :-)

The Deno 1.0 Release Post — We featured this last week but if you haven't been through it all yet, it's worth revisiting.

Deno Project

The Deno Third Party Modules Directory — Deno has its own official code hosting service for Deno libraries.


DenoPkg: Nicer URLs for Your GitHub-Hosted Deno Code — Rewrites URLs so you can target in a nicer way.
