I Stopped Using Express.js: Because Bun and Hono 🔥

Express has been around for almost as long as node has existed. It’s an awesome framework, it’s how I learned to make web servers in node and how i’ve been teaching people to make web servers for the past 8 years.

But it’s time to move on, because the alternatives are just so much better. It’s mind blowing how much the web has changed recently.
