Web development platform Vercel acquires Turborepoto to transform the game for front-end developers
“We saw an incredible amount of complexity in the way most front-end development teams build, test, and deploy their code, and we set out to figure out the best way to build and scale a front-end code base. Turborepo gives developers the ability to address this complexity without the maintenance overhead associated with traditional monorepo architectures, “said Jared Palmer, creator of Turborepo.
“The combination of Turborepo with Vercel’s build time and build infrastructure closes the gap between what every developer needs and what previously only the hyperscalers had. It’s kind of magical, and it’s really, really, really ridiculously fast. This is the platform for the future of business on the web. “
Turborepo has clear synergies with Vercel, who with Next.js pioneered the concept of zero configuration in the React area and in the provision of content with edge functions and provision so that teams can focus exclusively on their product. Turborepo does not provide configuration for monorepos and carefully abstracts away the complexity and effort of scaling and maintenance so development teams can deliver faster and focus on exceeding user expectations.
“CI / CD times went from more than 20 minutes to less than eight minutes when we started Turborepo, with some jobs taking less than a minute depending on the number of transitive dependencies in the first month,” said Miguel Oller, co-founder of Makeswift.
The main features and benefits of Turborepo include:
- Monorepo support without configuration
- Microfrontend reference solution
- Faster incremental, smart builds
- Better monorepo development
“The platform that Jared built and the speed it offers Vercel users is really changing the game for front-end developers,” said Guillermo Rauch, CEO of Vercel.
“By optimizing both runtime and build-time performance, we can easily define a new global build performance limit for the web. I look forward to working closely with Jared as we continue to change the nature of web development, and see what our users will build with Vercel. “
