    Next generation frontend tooling. It's fast!

  • 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.

  • openmoji

  • Next.js

    The React Framework

    A very impressive and easy-to-use deployment and collaboration platform for front-end developers from creators of NextJS. Vercel enables developers to host websites and web services that deploy instantly and scale automatically – all without any configuration. So far, I have been using it for a couple of weeks, and it really feels like a Heroku or Netlify on steroids.

  • esbuild

    An extremely fast bundler for the web

    Vite is a blazing fast and easy to configure build tool. It uses esbuild for bundling, which is written in Go and pre-bundles dependencies 10-100x faster than JavaScript-based bundlers. I recently used Vite in one of my latest projects, and I'm currently planning to move my site to it (from create-react-app incl. webpack).
