About

I just think it’s awesome that a team of devs put so much work into an open source tool that would greatly improve the launch of a new product!

Pros:

It makes devs life WAY easier. That‘s probably the only tool you‘d need to launch a new web app. And it’s open source!

Cons:

Long term support?

Thank you for your feedback Dan - the question you raised around long term support is an important one and it is one that most people fear when it comes to open source products. Webiny is and will always be at it's core free and open source, but we do plan to provide additional services, support, paid apps as added value on top of the free stack. This will come next year and will fund the growth of the team and ensure that it's a long living project with both support from the core team but as well as the community.

I particularly like the promise of reduced man hours and it's extensive librarie, that makes this possible. Most importantly it's free and open source.

Looking forward to see how this develops over time.

Pros:

I like the fact that the makers understand the developers pain points and have come up with what seems to be a viable solution.

Cons:

I need more time to analyse the solution in details

I like it. Just wish it was not PHP-based :)

Pros:

Addresses common pain points, API-first, rapid development

Cons:

A brand new tech, it's always a question if it will gain traction

I love tech. I believe in humanity.

I was hoping this was something similar to bubble.is.

Pros:

I think is similar to bubble

Cons:

Not as abstract as bubble

The Webiny team are extremely dedicated, and talented individuals comprising some of the web's best talents. Webiny is the amazing culmination of their combined efforts and we're all fortunate to be able to use it.

Pros:

We've been lucky enough to have been using earlier versions of Webiny since 2014 and it's completely streamlined our development. Fantastic!

Cons:

Hard to say, but as a PM, the pros completely outweigh any cons.
