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 proprietary
platforms like Facebook and iOS.

Please Note

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

We're currently working towards an initial release in early 2016, with a
production-ready 1.0 release at the end of 2016.

We're writing a tool called revue to make it really easy for you to
contribute in a way that's easy to test and code review. You will be able
to install revue with the following command:

$ go get

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

$ revue open

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

$ revue submit

That's it! Thanks.
