What is Revery?
Revery is a new way to build desktop (and later, mobile) applications. Revery is built on the Reason/OCaml toolchain - giving you instant startup and performance comparable to native C code.
Revery is inspired by React, with a component-based user interface model implemented as a 'pure function' of state. It's like having a fast version of Electron with React built-in!
We believe that React is the best way to build user interfaces today - and when you bring that together with the performance of native code, in a language that feels like it was purpose - built for a functional UI paradigm - you can build great apps faster.
Why support Revery?
Revery is free and open-source - MIT Licensed - but developing features and functionality takes a lot of work. We believe in sustainable open source, and Revery is dependent on the community to grow.
Funds will be used as follows:
- Cover our core expenses (AWS hosting, CI subscriptions, etc)
- Compensation for contributors and maintainers time
- Funding for projects to further Revery (documentation pushes, developer tooling, native libraries)
If you're excited about the possibility of a natively-compiled React, consider contributing to our OpenCollective!
