What is Hoodie?

We want to enable you to build complete web apps in days, without having to worry about backends, databases or servers, all with an open source library that's as simple to use as jQuery.

What is Escher?

A web server for 2016. Escher's built-in web server allows you to create interactive UIs with very little code. It takes care of messaging between Julia and the browser under-the-hood. It can also hot-load code: you can see your UI evolve as you save your changes to it.
