A tool for building web apps entirely in the front end

1 month ago from , CEO @ Artisfy

I'm a designer, UX researcher, and front-end developer. I've worked at many startups throughout my adult life. Over the course of building multiple products from the ground up, I always wondered if there was an easier way.

Two years ago, I started from scratch once again, building a service for creatives to market their services. However, after I finished implementing user account, data editing, and image uploading yet again, I realized I had built a framework.

Today, I'm releasing this framework to everyone as an open source project and a platform that you can use to host your web apps.

I'm not lying when I say it's the quickest way I've experienced of turning a static HTML document into an interactive web app.

I'd love for you to try it out: https://remaketheweb.com/

    Interesting project. This has a lot of potential for static sites.

    I miss a more complex example app, though. Or perhaps seeing it used in for a real project for example. Anyway, congrats on the launch.

      Thank you!

      The example app provided (the Trello clone) is actually pretty complex as far as example apps go. However, there is a much more complex app running in production that uses Remake: https://requestcreative.com/

      That app uses several custom components (for image uploading & positioning, for example) that are built on top of Remake. They'll be generalized, extracted, and moved into the open source framework soon.

      Let me know what you think :)

        The additional components make it even more interesting, for sure. Thanks for sharing the link.

          Let me know if you have any projects you think could work well with this. I'd be willing to give anyone who sees this an hour of my time to help them get set up. And give my advice about how to build what they want to build (even if it's not with Remake).
