Getting Started


Vituum is a mix of words Vite (French word for "quick") and Tuum
(Estonian word for "core")

It's a small wrapper around Vite which includes predefined config and set of plugins.

  • Primary focus is on easy backend integration, but can be used for anything.
  • Modified build command vituum build is used, which supports building of template engine files ending with extname such as .twig and .latte

You can learn more about Vituum and its features at the Features page


Vituum is in early preview. Can be used for production, but some features may change over time.

  • some refactoring is needed, also not written in TypeScript at the time
  • tests via Vitest need to be written
  • template plugins are still experimental and feedback is welcome

Scaffolding Your First Vituum Project

$ mkdir my-project && cd my-project
$ npm i vituum --save-dev
