Purely Functional

Freya is a modern, purely functional stack for web programming in F#. Familiar functional programming techniques for state and concurrency are combined to give you a consistent and seamless approach to building web applications.

let ok =
    freya {
        do! Response.statusCode .= Some 200
        do! Response.reasonPhrase .= Some "OK" }

Typesafe Modelling

The powerful and comprehensive type systems available with Freya help you build safe and composable application components. Types for HTTP and surrounding standards give you the tools you need to make the most of the web.

let scheme_ =
        Request.uri_
    >-> Uri.scheme_

let isSecure =
    freya {
        let! scheme = Freya.Optic.get scheme_
        return scheme = HTTPS }

High Level HTTP Abstractions

The Freya Machine abstraction gives you an amazingly powerful and functional approach to build HTTP applications. Build complex HTTP applications from smaller, composable, re-usable elements.

let users =
    freyaMachine {
        methods [ GET; OPTIONS; POST ]
        availableMediaTypes MediaType.json
        doPost createUser
        handleOk listUsers }

Powerful Routing

Routing based on flexible and relevant web standards — URI Templates — allows you to create fast and accurate routing with a consistent data model, and re-use routes for matching, URI generation and more.

let routes =
    freyaRouter {
        route GET "/" home
        resource  "/api/users" users
        resource  "/api/users/{id}" user }

Extensible and Composable Stack

Design to support building abstractions at successviely higher levels enables building complex applications at the right level of detail and control. Build your own abstractions to boost your productivity.

let cors =
    freyaMachine {
        cors
        corsEnabled true
        corsMethods [ GET; PUT ] }

Open Standards and Compatibility

A basis on open standards (especially community driven) enables Freya to be compatible with many frameworks and servers. Choose the best tool for specific tasks, make the most of the web.

let frameworks =
    [ "asp.net"; "suave"; .. ]

let servers =
    [ "kestrel"; "iis"; "katana"; "suave"; .. ]
