This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/webdev

Our great sponsors
  • Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support
  • InfluxDB - Build time-series-based applications quickly and at scale.
  • Sonar - Write Clean JavaScript Code. Always.
  • three.js

    JavaScript 3D Library.

    gsap for animation. ThreeJs if you want to do some 3D and basic html canvas with js for games I like this guy's channel https://www.youtube.com/c/Frankslaboratory

  • Lottie for Android, iOS, and React Native

    Render After Effects animations natively on Android and iOS, Web, and React Native

    Unity can export to WebGL/WASM, so that's one option if you're making some kind of heavy interactive experience and you don't mind waiting for it to load. For just animations there are tools like Lottie that can help. I think things are generally a lot more fragmented than they were in the Flash/Shockwave days though.

  • 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!
