  • Sonar - Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.
  • novu

    The open-source notification infrastructure for products. Add a notification center for your React, Vue and Angular apps 🚀

    Just a quick background about us. Novu is the first open-source notification infrastructure. We basically help to manage all the product notifications. It can be In-App (the bell icon like you have in Facebook - Websockets), Emails, SMSs and so on. I would be super happy if you could give us a star! And let me also know in the comments ❤️


    Monitor for any changes in your node.js application and automatically restart the server - perfect for development

    Nodemon is a Node.js tool that automatically restarts the server after detecting file changes, and allows us to configure a real-time connection on the server.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!


    Realtime application framework (Node.JS server) is a popular JavaScript library that allows us to create real-time, bi-directional communication between web browsers and a Node.js server. It is a highly performant and reliable library designed to process a large volume of data with minimal delay. It follows the WebSocket protocol and provides better functionalities, such as fallback to HTTP long-polling or automatic reconnection, which enables us to build efficient real-time applications.

  • react-native

    A framework for building native applications using React

    *React Native is an open-source React framework that enables us to create native applications for both IOS and Android with JavaScript code. Basic knowledge of React Native is required to understand this tutorial.*

  • async-storage

    An asynchronous, persistent, key-value storage system for React Native.

    So far, you've learnt how to set up in a React Native and Node.js application, save data with Async Storage, and communicate between a server and the Expo app via

  • git

    A fork of Git containing Windows-specific patches. (by git-for-windows)

    Ensure you have the Expo CLI, Node.js, and Git installed on your computer. Then, create the project folder and an Expo React Native app by running the code below.

  • Express

    Fast, unopinionated, minimalist web framework for node.

    Express.js is a fast, minimalist framework that provides several features for building web applications in Node.js. CORS is a Node.js package that allows communication between different domains.

  • Klotho

    AWS Cloud-aware infrastructure-from-code toolbox [NEW]. Build cloud backends with Infrastructure-from-Code (IfC), a revolutionary technique for generating and updating cloud infrastructure. Try IfC with AWS and Klotho now (Now open-source)
