branch: master


This is the repo for Ampify — an open and decentralised app platform. It is
intended as a successor to the Open Web and as a replacement for closed
platforms like iOS and Facebook.

We're currently working towards an initial release for mid-2013, with a final
1.0 release at the end of 2013 — see the planfile for more info.

Getting Started

$ make
$ source environ/


For more info, please see the doc directory or visit:


We've made a tool called git-review to make it really easy for you
to contribute. If you haven't used it before, just install it with
the following command:

$ sudo easy_install git-review

Then, to contribute any patches, simply create a new branch for your

$ git checkout -b name-for-your-patch

And to submit it for review, make sure you've added yourself to the
AUTHORS file and run:

$ git review submit

That's it! Thanks.

Please Note

This is very much a work in progress and not much works yet — faster
development is dependent on your involvement =)
