Netlify Edge Functions is currently an experimental technology.

Rakkas projects can be deployed to Netlify Functions or Netlify Edge Functions. First, you should install the suitable HatTip adapter:

npm install -S @hattip/adapter-netlify # or @hattip/adapter-netlify-edge

Then you should set the adapter option of Rakkas Vite plugin to "netlify" or "netlify-edge":

import { defineConfig } from "vite";
import rakkas from "rakkasjs/vite-plugin";

export default defineConfig({
  plugins: [
      adapter: "netlify", // or "netlify-edge"

Then create a netlify.toml file like this:

publish = "netlify/static"

framework = "#static"

# Uncomment for Netlify Edge
# [[edge_functions]]
# function = "edge"
# path = "/*"

After building with rakkas build, you can preview your app with netlify dev or publish with netlify deploy.

Deno-specific APIs

Netlify Edge Functions run on a Deno runtime. But, during development, Rakkas applications always run on Node.js regardless of the adapter setting. As such, Deno APIs will not be available during development. We're looking into ways of polyfilling these APIs for development.
