Skybreak is an ultra-simple framework for building modern websites and web applications. What once took weeks, now takes hours in Skybreak.
With Skybreak you write apps:
- that send data over the wire, rather than HTML
- using your choice of popular open-source libraries
Have a look at the main Skybreak documentation here:
This is still pre-release software. If you use it please, PLEASE sign up on the website above. Especially if you deploy a web site with
Quick Start (normal install process)
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 email@example.com: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 will cause
skybreak to be in your
./install.sh skybreak --help
