Using JSR with Cloudflare Workers

Cloudflare Workers provides a serverless execution environment for JavaScript and WebAssembly that can execute your code on Cloudflare’s global network.

JSR packages can be used in Cloudflare Workers by using JSR’s npm compatibility layer.

First, create a new Cloudflare Worker project:

npm create cloudflare@latest
yarn create cloudflare
pnpm create cloudflare

You can then add JSR packages with the jsr CLI. This will add the package to your package.json and install it into your node_modules folder using your preferred package manager (npm, yarn, or pnpm).

npx jsr add @std/encoding

Note: You should check the .npmrc file that is created into source control. Without this, future calls to npm install / yarn / pnpm install will not succeed.

You can then import JSR packages in your code:

import { encodeBase64 } from "@std/encoding/base64";

export default {
  async fetch(request: Request): Promise<Response> {
    return new Response(encodeBase64("Hello World!"));

Running wrangler dev to start the local development server will run your Cloudflare Worker. You can then visit http://localhost:8787 to see the result.

$ wrangler dev
