Another key factor that contributes to Bun’s high performance is its native HTTP server. Bun does not have to rely on a third-party HTTP server such as Express or Koa.

In the next part of this blog series, we will take a closer look at the Bun API layer and explain how to use the Bun API to develop high-performance web applications.
For example, the Bun team is currently working on a number of new features that could make Bun even faster and more efficient, such as support for WebAssembly and native
