  • shepherd

    Guide your users through a tour of your app

    This looks great. What does it do differently to Shepherd[0]?


  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The open-source backend cloud platform. Add Auth, Databases, Functions, and Storage to your product and build any application at any scale while using your preferred coding languages and tools.

  • Aquaman

    I built a library meant to accomplish some of these same tasks for a Redux app (also did the same think for React context, but that was never open sourced).

    The things this misses, I think, are that 1) you probably want the state of you app to trigger a guided tour, 2) you probably want a multistep flow at some point, and 3) the state changing logic of that flow probably should be separated from the rendering logic (all the steps of the flow should be together).

    That’s what I was able to accomplish with Aquaman.

  • lusift

    Javascript library to create product walkthroughs for your web app. Drive users through the different features of your product.

    I made a more complete library a while back for those interested, driver has been known here for a while but Lusift is new and doesn't have that traction -

  • react-onboard

    Onboard users with messages that highlight components. Fully customizable

    I also made a version of this

  • InfluxDB

    Collect and Analyze Billions of Data Points in Real Time. Manage all types of time series data in a single, purpose-built database. Run at any scale in any environment in the cloud, on-premises, or at the edge.
