Blitz is a batteries-included framework that’s inspired by Ruby on Rails, is built on Next.js, and features a “Zero-API” data layer abstraction that eliminates the need for REST/GraphQL.

“Zero-API” data layer lets you import server code directly into your React components instead of having to manually add API endpoints and do client-side fetching and caching. New Blitz apps come with all the boring stuff already set up for you! Like ESLint, Prettier, Jest, user sign up, log in, and password reset. Provides helpful defaults and conventions for things like routing, file structure, and authentication while also being extremely flexible.

This Tutorial is a full walkthrough through all the fundamental parts of Blitz, including adding models to your database and reading and updating data from your frontend.
