Try it out: Notepad - Demo application

A simple cloud notepad for personal notes build on top of the platform. Try and see how it works from an end users point of view. Or have a look at the source codes.

Building web applications

The growing number and popularity of javascript frameworks makes it easy to build web applications with client-centric logic. Large parts of application specific code is no longer executed on the server but in the clients browser.

This platform is an integrated solution for such applications including server-side components, security, backend and routing. It works with any javascript framework or library like jQuery, AngularJS, EmberJS, Backbone and so on.

jQuery based javascript libraries for easier integration are already available. Modules for other frameworks will follow. The documentation also covers how to build http requests manually to interact with services.

Using components

The components provided by the platform can also be used as standalone services. For example you can use the DataStorage and UserAccount components to run a secure central online database. There is no restriction to use them with externally hosted or native applications.

Please note: This is a public prototype with only a limited set of components and functionality. Many features like custom domain routing, pushing git repositories or typed data storage is not supported yet. In other words flexibility is still quite limited. Also many security features like SSL or csrf-tokens are not activated yet.

More to come: service components and features will be extended continuously!

Have a look at the roadmap to find out what is coming up next.
