Wasp

A programming language for building web apps with less code

Wasp is a declarative programming language for building web apps faster and with less code.

It is a higher-level declarative domain-specific language (DSL) that generates full-stack code in the tech stack of your choice (currently supporting React/Redux, Node & Mongo). Front-end, back-end and deployment - all in one concise DSL.

Hi all!
We have spent about a year working on Wasp as a side project, and have just finalized a prototype that is not fully featured yet but should give a good idea of what it is all about, what is our vision.

Since there is still a lot of work to be done to on Wasp, we appreciate all feedback, good or bad, to guide our future efforts! So please let us know, what is your general opinion, what would you like to see in it, how do you see it progressing.

Wasp is open source, so besides landing page you can check what we have so far on github repo https://github.com/wasp-lang/wasp - we are also welcoming contributors who would like to help developing Wasp!
This looks amazing and could significantly reduce the effort to produce web apps in the future. Love that it is open source
@MikeMahlkow Thanks Mike, I am glad to hear you like it! That is our vision yes, bringing high level concepts that will allow developers to define a web app with less code, making codebase shorter, easier to read and more maintainable, while requiring less in-depth full-stack expertise!
Hey! I'm not a developer/engineer but this looks pretty cool. Question: in the age of no/low code web tools like Webflow and Bubble, why did you decide to build Wasp? Cool name btw!
@optemization thanks for nice words! Webflow and Bubble have enabled a lot of people to make web pages / web apps, however they are not aimed for developers (like ourselves). So Wasp is filling in the gap between Webflow/Bubble and current programming solutions.
