Skybreak is an ultra-simple environment for building modern web applications.
With Skybreak you write apps:
- that send data over the wire, rather than HTML
- using your choice of popular open-source libraries
Please, do not share or blog about Skybreak yet. It is experimental, pre-release software. We hope it shows the direction of our thinking, and much of it will to change. We'd love to hear your feedback.
Documentation is available at http://preview.skybreakplatform.com/
Install Skybreak (only OS X, for now):
curl -sL bit.ly/n122Iu | /bin/sh
Create a project:
skybreak create try-skybreak
cd try-skybreak skybreak
Deploy it to the world, for free:
skybreak deploy try-skybreak.skybreakplatform.com
Slow Start (for developers)
If you want to run on the bleeding edge, or help develop Skybreak, you can run Skybreak directly from a git checkout.
git clone firstname.lastname@example.org:skybreak/skybreak.git cd skybreak
If you're the sort of person who likes to build everything from scratch, you can build all the Skybreak dependencies (node.js, npm, mongodb, etc) with the provided script. If you do not run this script, Skybreak will automatically download pre-compiled binaries when you first run it.
# OPTIONAL ./admin/generate-dev-bundle.sh
Now you can run skybreak directly from the checkout (if you did not build the dependency bundle above, this will take a few moments to download a pre-build version).
Or install to
/usr/local like the normal install process. This
skybreak to be in your
./install.sh skybreak --help
Get in touch! We'd love to hear what you think. You can get involved in several ways:
