Turbopack (alpha)

Turbopack is an incremental bundler optimized for JavaScript and TypeScript, written in Rust, and built into Next.js 13.

On large applications Turbopack updates 10x faster than Vite and 700x faster than Webpack. For the biggest applications, the difference is even larger with updates up to 20x faster than Vite.


Turbopack can be used in Next.js 13 in both the pages and app directories:

  1. Create a Next.js 13 project with Turbopack
npx create-next-app@latest --example with-turbopack
  1. Start the Next.js development server (with Turbopack)
