Worker runtime APIs

Oxygen is a worker-based runtime. Because workers adapt browser-based APIs to web server contexts, you have access to many standard web platform APIs when using Oxygen.

The worker runtime APIs for Oxygen provide methods, classes, and abstractions for the following tasks:

  • Handling data being sent over the network
  • Parsing URLs
  • Performing network requests
  • Processing network responses
  • Controlling cache behavior
  • Parsing HTML
  • Encrypting and decrypting data
  • Working with data streams
  • Working with time

This reference provides a list of the functions that you can use with worker runtime APIs in Oxygen. These APIs are similar to the APIs that are provided by web browsers or Node.js projects.
