Rust bindings for writing safe and fast native Node.js modules.

Getting started

Once you have the platform dependencies installed, getting started is as simple as:

$ npm install -g neon-cli
$ neon new my-project

Then see the Hello World guide for writing your first Hello World in Neon!


See our Neon fundamentals docs and our API docs.

Platform Support

Operating Systems

| Linux | macOS | Windows | | ------ | ----- | ------- | | ✓ | ✓ | ✓ |


| Node 10 | Node 12 | Node 14 | | ------- | ------- | ------- | | ✓ | ✓ | ✓ |

Support for LTS versions of Node and current are expected. If you're using a different version of Node and believe it should be supported, let us know.


Neon supports Rust stable version 1.18 and higher. We test on the latest stable, beta, and nightly versions of Rust.

A Taste...

fn make_an_array(mut cx: FunctionContext) -> JsResult {
    // Create some values:
    let n = cx.number(9000);
    let s = cx.string("hello");
    let b = cx.boolean(true);

// Create a new array:
let array: Handle<jsarray> = cx.empty_array();

// Push the values into the array:
array.set(&amp;mut cx, 0, n)?;
array.set(&amp;mut cx, 1, s)?;
array.set(&amp;mut cx, 2, b)?;

// Return the array:


register_module!(mut cx, { cx.export_function("makeAnArray", make_an_array) })
