- Turborepo was created by the team at Vercel (opens in a new tab) in 2020.
- Turbopack was created by the team at Vercel (opens in a new tab) in 2022.
The research and development of Turbo is led by the core team working full-time at Vercel. Turbo is a collaborative open-source effort to build tools for web developers.
Turborepo Lead: Greg Soltis
Turbopack Lead: Tobias Koppers
Core Team: Turborepo and Turbopack teams at Vercel (opens in a new tab) manage the direction of Turbo and leadership of the project.
Documentation: DevRel teams at Vercel (opens in a new tab) manage documentation and learning platforms.
Large architecture decisions and features start as a Request for Comments (RFC) (opens in a new tab) inside GitHub Discussions. The entire Turbo community is invited to be involved in the process and discuss the tradeoffs of proposed work.
This process is essential to ensure features are built together with the community and our collaborators. More minor changes including bug fixes and documentation improvements are still implemented through GitHub pull requests. However, for larger initiatives, we believe it's essential to follow the RFC process.
- Experimental: Experimental features lack essential capabilities required to be ready for stability. The feature is considered to be under active development and is being built to transition into Beta.
- Beta: Beta means the feature does not yet meet our quality standards for a stable release. There is also usually a need for more information or feedback from Turbo developers to validate this feature works as expected in a variety of environments.
- Stable: When the features reach stability, it is considered ready for use in production. APIs marked as stable will only change in a backward-compatible way unless there is a major release.
- Deprecated: A feature is in the process of being removed. Deprecated features include documentation for existing users with the next steps and information on when to expect the feature to be removed.
