Karbon is the first front-end framework designed specifically for content businesses. It includes the structure, route handling, data fetching, components, and tooling you need to get started so you can spend time styling and designing features that make your brand unique.
We've chosen Vue as our framework of choice as Vue 3 outperforms React by up to 30% in real-world testing. Additionally, Karbon has built-in caching controls, hybrid rendering, and island architecture support, meaning that you consistently hit 90+ Pagespeed scores, regardless of how many routes you serve.
A gigantic and healthy ecosystem
Vue is the most popular frontend framework with over 200k stars on GitHub, creating a thriving ecosystem larger than any other performance-focused frameworks, including Svelte, Solid, and Astro.
Ensure crawlability with robots.txt, Google News sitemaps, HTTP headers, and meta tags — all fully configurable with route rules. Bad practice trailing slashes and broken links are automatically handled, with the option to fail builds if broken links are detected. Automatically generate Open Graph and Twitter meta tags and dynamic or static social share images.
Automatic image optimisation
Generate images at the right size, defined by component or following responsive breakpoints. All delivered in WebP from Storipress' image CDN.
Cloud agnostic deployments
Deploy Karbon to your favourite cloud provider, or deploy to Storipress. The choice is yours. Deploy in 1 click to Cloudflare Pages, Netlify, Vercel, Azure Static Web Pages and Functions, and Stormkit. Or deploy to Storipress' integrated hosting environment using our GitHub Action without any additional bandwidth charges.
Easy learning curve
For developers on WordPress, Vue is more familiar than React as it uses HTML templates instead of JSX.
