If you want to get started with a basic template, run the below command in your favorite terminal.

You usually have to navigate into the generated subfolder.

deno run -Ar

If you don't want to use one of the templates, you can follow the manual for Deno or for Cloudflare Workers.

If you're using Cloudflare as a proxy, please specify it through the proxy option.

Also, if you haven't already enabled Deno for your workspace, make sure to check out Deno's manual to learn more.


Throughout this entire guide we specify imports without a version tag due to simplicity.

// e.g.
import cheetah from ''

Please do not import the modules this way! Instead, add the latest version (e.g. v1.5.0 as of August 28th) after x/cheetah like this:

import cheetah from '[email protected]/mod.ts'
