Growth reflects Appsmith’s mission to help every developer quickly build the best in-house tools
SAN FRANCISCO, January 26, 2022–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Appsmith, the first low-code open-source software helping developers build internal tools, made impressive progress in 2021. The company was founded in mid-2019 and its open-source software has been downloaded over 5 million times with over 11,000 stars on GitHub (100% growth since September). This ranks third on this listing open source projects compiled by Runa Capital in terms of percentage increase in GitHub stars during the fourth quarter.
Highlights of 2021 include the introduction of over 150 enhancements, including major features such as JS Editor, Gitsync, and over 30 new widgets and variants. A total of 184 features have been released. A full list can be viewed here.
Appsmith now has over 2,000 community members with 168 contributors, including 100 external to the company.
Appsmith is the first open-source low-code software that helps developers build custom internal and in-house (often critical but time-consuming) apps. CRUD (create, read, update, and delete) type apps quickly, usually in just a few hours.
“Building an app with Appsmith is so easy that it took just under 10 minutes,” says Jatin Sharma, operations engineer at Fyle, a fintech company, which used Appsmith to increase the productivity of its customer success department.
“2021 was the year we grew our community and created a framework used by thousands of developers around the world,” said Abhishek Nayak, co-founder and CEO of Appsmith. “With a much larger community, contributors and core team, we are excited for what lies ahead in 2022. We are doubling down on the engagement and enthusiasm of our amazing contributors around the world with new widgets, themes customizations, enhanced mobile support, additional security features and more.”
A list of over a dozen areas targeted for new features in 2022 can be viewed here.
Every company has to build custom apps – a slow, repetitive, and expensive process – that requires work to build the user interface, write integrations, code business logic, manage access controls, and ultimately deploy the app. Appsmith is 10x faster by allowing software engineers to build the user interface with pre-built components, code business logic by connecting application programming interfaces (APIs) to any database, and then test and deploy a web application where users are authenticated using a dashboard.
