Dobi is an ultra-simple environment for building scalable, real-time web applications.

With Dobi you write apps...

  • in Coffee-Script (or javascript, but please don't)
  • with client-side rendering (only send data over the wire)
  • with real-time functionality by simply referencing variables
  • build schemas with simple json objects (no more complicated ORMs)
  • that scale to 100k+ users without hosting your own servers
  • on Linux, Mac, or Windows
  • in any editing environment you prefer
