Usage

Add Scripts

Add the following scripts to your package.json file:

json
{
  // ...
  "type": "module",
  "scripts": {
    "dev": "vite",
    "build": "vite build",
    "preview": "vite preview"
  }
  // ...
}

Configuration

Add the following configuration to your vite.config.ts:

ts
// vite.config.ts
import { resolve } from 'path';
import { defineConfig } from 'vite';
import fastify from 'vite-plugin-fastify';

export default defineConfig({
  server: {
    host: '127.0.0.1',
    port: 3000,
  },
  plugins: [
    fastify({
      appPath: './src/app.ts', // Default: <rootDir>/src/app.ts
      serverPath: './src/server.ts', // Default: <rootDir>/src/server.ts
    }),
  ],
  resolve: {
    alias: {
      '~': resolve(__dirname, 'src'),
    },
  },
});
ts
// src/app.ts
import fastify from 'fastify';

export default () => {
  const app = fastify();

  app.get('/api/hello-world', async (req, reply) => {
    return reply.send('Hello, World!');
  });

  return app;
};
ts
// src/server.ts
import app from './app';

const server = app();

const start = () => {
  try {
    await server.listen({ host: '127.0.0.1', port: 3000 });
  } catch (err) {
    server.log.error(err);
    process.exit(1);
  }
};

start();

Known Issues

This plugin does not support WebSocket.

For a workaround, use vite-node for development:

json
{
  // ...
  "scripts": {
    "dev": "vite", 
    "dev": "vite-node -w src/server.ts", 
    "build": "vite build",
    "preview": "vite preview"
  }
  // ...
}

Set to false to disable HMR during development:

ts
  plugins: [
    fastify({
      devMode: false, 
    }),
  ],

Add import.meta.hot support to vite-node for HMR:

ts
const start = async () => {
  try {
    await server.listen({ host: '127.0.0.1', port: 3000 });
  } catch (err) {
    server.log.error(err);
    process.exit(1);
  }

  if (import.meta.hot) { 
    import.meta.hot.on('vite:beforeFullReload', async () => { 
      await server.close(); 
    }); 

    import.meta.hot.dispose(async () => { 
      await server.close(); 
    }); 
  } 
};
