TL;DR: we’ve developed an open-source language for building full-stack web apps with less code and best practices that works alongside React and Node. Join us during HacktoberFest!
Hello everyone! We’re a small team of open-source enthusiasts, passionate about web development and extremely tired of writing boilerplate code.
That’s why we created Wasp - an open-source web application configuration language that takes over all the routine work of creating a project backbone. You describe the application’s functionality (API endpoints, authorisation, deployment, etc.) in a single file.
The compiler does the rest itself. The result is a full-fledged web app built with Node + React, created in a few minutes. We are backed by Y Combinator and engineers from Airbnb, Facebook, and Lyft.
Wasp's compiler is built with Haskell and under the hood it generates a web application in React and NodeJS. Given that, there are several ways in which you can contribute:
- Wasp compiler/CLI/LSP internals (Haskell)
- Wasp as a web framework (React, Node, HTML/CSS, database and so on)
- Tutorials or Example apps
Given that we'll find a good first issue for anyone, no matter if you're an experienced dev or just a beginner!
