Why do we still need ‘cloud specialists’ to go serverless?
All major cloud providers give multiple (proprietary) components to build serverless applications on their platforms. Function-compute, CDN, cross-region object storage, cross- region dB, api gateway, are a few to mention. And they vary from one to another. Cloud specialists are needed, because, for instance, to build an e-commerce website you would need to be well versed in using (at least) 6 such components.
How does kitsune change that?
It removes the need for specialisation by doing a lot of the backend work with the cloud providers. For the user, kitsune provides an HTML based syntax to build serverless applications rather simply. So now, if you know HTML, CSS and JS - you can build and deploy serverless applications! Our “kit-runtime” is available across multiple major cloud providers, enabling you to deploy your kitsune code on any cloud without any prerequisite expertise.
The best serverless applications are built with kitsune
kitsune enables you to write your application logic in an HTML-based syntax. This enables the developers to focus on user experience and not worry about the application architecture at scale. This HTML-based syntax gives the web developers complete control to create full stack application without having to write a single line of backend code. They can create dynamic URLs, integrate in-website payment gateways, integrate third party APIs in just simple HTML syntax. Yes, that simple!
This is where the magic happens in kitsune. kit-RunTime converts and configures the application logic to the best serverless architecture possible on the cloud. Currently, the RunTime is optimised for Alibaba Cloud, AWS, Akamai and Azure. This ensures that you get the serverless experience for your application logic across cloud providers. Few optimisations like “edge / region-specific compute optimisation”, “cache / compute based response” make your applications run at maximum speed and minimal cost.
Deploy your applications to any cloud.
Migrate them in one click.
The biggest advantage kitsune gives you is that of writing cloud-agnostic code. That simply means that the applications you build using Kitsune can be deployed on any cloud. It also means that it can be migrated to another provider, at any given point in time - with a single click.
What makes kitsune the best serverless framework?
kitsune extracts the complexity out of using multiple serverless components on the cloud. With kitsune's programming language you can solely focus on your application logic and not have to worry about configuring and monitoring any of the various components on the cloud.
Serverless full-stack Web Applications
If you want to build an online e-commerce application for your products and your vendors or an online content-aggregation application or any other online full stack application (that has a front-end, business logic and database) - you can simply use kitsune's HTML based programming language.
Serverless business APIs
Serverless AI (coming soon)
Very soon kitsune will allow you to deploy your existing AI / ML / Deep Learning models into cloud-agnostic serverless API within minutes.

Serverless Web Applications and APIs built with kitsune never slow down or go offline -
irrespective of the concurrency or geographic spread of yourcustomers
Building a dynamic website has never been as easy (or even fun) as it is while developing it on kitsune. To get started on Kitsune, you need to have a completely static & hard-coded version of the website that you wish to build.
Code/Asset Minification & Compression
All application code and static assets are first pre-processed by an optimiser before being handed over to the kit-BuildTime for compilation. For example, all static assets are compressed and minified to reduce their load time for your customers. Also the slow- changing assets are enabled with smart browser caching to further improve load times.
Edge/Region-Specific Compute Optimisation
kitsune transforms 100% of the application logic into function-compute on the cloud. kit- BuildTime automatically classifies which section of logic needs to stay closer to persistent data-store and which section can be configured for edge-location function compute. This is your application logic – rendered as fast as possible for your customers.
Cache/Compute Based Response Optimisation
kitsune smartly configures application response across CDN, object storage and redis to enable the fastest response. Most of the compute is triggered on function-compute stack of the cloud provider. This enables high availability and also the most cost-effective compute, simply because you literally get charged for the CPU cycles alone.
kitsune is built by a passionate team of engineers who want to empower web-developers to build powerful websites for tomorrow, effortlessly. Simply put, we are building the platform for the future.

We would like to thank the web-developer community for the constant and great feedback over time. As they started building awesome websites using kitsune, we started getting a lot of new asks from the community. Team kitsune works hard to innovate on these asks and build new components to make web-development even more fun and scalable.
