Blitz is a Rails-like framework for monolithic, full-stack React apps — built on Next.js
Blitz brings back the simplicity and conventions of server-rendered frameworks like Ruby on Rails while preserving everything we love about React and client-side rendering!
Blitz is the framework for the 99% of us at companies with <100 employees. This means we don't force you to use advanced technologies like GraphQL. We let you add advanced technologies on your terms and at your pace.
Blitz maximizes your productivity both when starting an app and when scaling it to lots of code and users.

What is Blitz Designed For?
Blitz is designed for tiny to large database-backed applications that have one or more graphical user interfaces.
While we currently only support web, we are pursuing the dream of a single monolithic application that runs on web and mobile with maximum code sharing and minimal boilerplate.
What are the Foundational Principles?
- Fullstack & Monolithic
- API Not Required
- Convention over Configuration
- Loose Opinions
- Easy to Start, Easy to Scale
- Community over Code
The Blitz Manifesto explains these principles in detail.
