Wick Documentation

Wick is an application runtime that allows you to stitch components together into web services, CLI apps, microservices, workers, anything. Wick was designed from the ground-up with reusability and security in mind. Wick is built with rust and WebAssembly to keep your code secure and portable.

Key Benefits of Wick

  1. Reusability: Write a component once, use it as a microservice, JSON Rest API, CLI app, or as part of another component for larger application without changing a single line of code.

  2. Productivity: Wick makes it easier to develop, maintain, document, and test your applications. Test every component the same way, generate documentation with a single command, and update components without fear.

  3. Security: Wick uses WebAssembly to sandbox dependencies and keep them isolated from one another. Wick’s architecture makes it easy to keep vulnerabilities out of code in the first place.
