Alpha feedback

We are developing an OSS web framework in a form of a config language (DSL) that works with React & Node.js. Getting developers to use a new tool (especially a web framework) is a pretty hard thing to do. We wished there were more stories of how today's mainstream tools got adopted that we could learn from, so that motivated us to document our own.

It’s almost here! After almost two years since our Alpha release, countless apps developed, React and Node versions upgraded, and PRs merged we’re only a day away from Beta!

Beta is coming

We’re going to follow a launch week format, which means our Beta launch will last for the whole week! Starting with the Product Hunt launch this Sunday (we’ll let you know once we’re live, so sharpen your upvoting fingers!) we’ll highlight a new feature every day.

I’ll try not to spoil too much in advance but we’re really excited about this - here follows a quick overview of what it’s gonna look like:

2078 lines of code across 24 PRs were changed in Wasp repo during HacktoberFest 2022 - the most prominent online event for promoting and celebrating OSS culture. October has been a blast, to say the least, and the most active month in the repo's history.

This is the story of our journey along with the tips on leveraging Hacktoberfest to get your repo buzzing! 🐝🐝

We are working on a new web framework that integrates with React & Node.js, and also happens to be a language. As you can probably imagine, it’s not easy to get people to use a new piece of technology, especially while still in Alpha. On the other hand, without users and their feedback, it’s impossible to know what to build.

That is why we ran Alpha Testing Program for Wasp - here is what we learned and what went both well and wrong along the way.
