November 2017 Software

Quilt is a JavaScript tool used to to build and manage anything from website backends to complex distributed systems.

Abstract

Building infrastructure and running applications with Quilt is simple, intuitive, and flexible. With Quilt.js, you specify your infrastructure declaratively in JavaScript, and Quilt then takes care of deploying it on one or more cloud providers. Subsequently scaling and modifying the infrastructure becomes a matter of changing a few lines of JavaScript code.

The Quilt.js JavaScript framework allows for development, versioning, and testing of infrastructure in the same way as for application code. Additionally, Quilt.js code is shareable, reusable, and composable, making it easy to set up and manage systems without being an expert in system administration.
