    🔥 The fastest way to build type safe web apps. IHP is a new batteries-included web framework optimized for longterm productivity and programmer happiness

    Hey there, Founder of digitally induced here. Happy to share what've been working on with Thin Backend over the last months.

    Thin is a version of the [IHP Framework](, designed to be used by frontend developers. Instead of building APIs with low-level `fetch` calls, we provide high-level APIs like `createRecord('tasks', { title: 'Hello World' }`, `updateRecord(..)` and `deleteRecord(..)` to update your database.

    To simplify state management (which is typically hard and lot's of boilerplate), we provide realtime APIs so that all app state is always in sync with the actual database. Previously your react app might have been rendered from the redux state, now it's rendered directly from the server state.

    The Schema Designer and the migration tools make it really easy to get going with a project.

    Happy to hear everyone's feedback! :)
