πŸ€” Why Remake?

"Remake gives me an entirely new feeling of comfort around coding. It's what I imagine web development should be." β€” Arav Narula

Diagram of how Remake works

Remake does what most frameworks do in 100 lines of code in 1 line of HTML.

<h1 object key:text="@innerText" edit:text>{{text}}</h1>

This πŸ‘† is a full app that users can login to. Each user can edit & share their own copy of this site! πŸ“° πŸ“° πŸ“°

πŸ‘©β€πŸŽ¨ Let people use something you designed β€” right away.

Remake is

🏭 Full-stack apps with just front-end code

Remake takes care of the rest: user accounts, persistent data, instant deployments, and routing. Each user gets their own account and data.

πŸ›© Real apps β€” not just prototypes

Remake feels like prototyping because it was designed to. The goal was to make web development feel like using a single template and a single JSON file.

🎨 100% control of your design

Remake is open source. You own the code. There's no platform lock-in and you have 100% control over your app's design.

🌍 Secure, scalable, and fast

Highly secure authentication. And server-rendered, so your pages load quickly even on low-power devices and slow connections.

πŸ‘©β€πŸ« Get started

1. Install Node.js (12.16+)

2. Create a project using the Remake CLI

npx remake create my-app

3. Run the project

cd my-app
npm run dev

You now have an app running at http://localhost:3000. Your app's code is in the /app directory and your database is in the /app/data directory.

πŸš€ Remake’s Mission

βš–οΈ Remake's goal is to equalize power on the internet.

A few companies own the platforms the rest of us publish on β€” but owning our own platform is usually out of the question. Remake lets you build your own platform with very little effort β€” using just HTML & CSS.
