Build Status NPM version

Periodic is an application framework for data driven, web and mobile applications.

The platform is 100% open source and composed of extremely modular components that enable creating bespoke Node.js/Express/MongoDB based applications efficiently with new or existing themes and extensions.

What can I build with Periodic?

The platform is built with the UNIX / small utility / modular application design philosophy in mind. Content creators, developers, software engineers and entrepreneurs are encouraged to build large robust applications by integrating small single purposed extensions.

Periodic emphasizes a curated (and non-opinionated) workflow, using Express with MongoDB and an extremely malleable data model.

The use of additional frameworks, templating languages and design libraries is highly encouraged.

Applications built with Periodic range from simple blogs, complicated enterprise media publications, mobile application datastores, e-commerce platforms and more.
