  • Benefits of an Open Environment with Wakanda

    by Alexandre Morgaut

    Wakanda may provide an all-in-one solution, but it’s far from being a monolithic platform! Sure, you get a development studio, an Ajax framework, an HTTP Server, an application engine, and a database, but it can very easily interact with your existing tools, frameworks, and libraries. Learn how, as a developer, you’ll be able to share your own widgets, modules, services, and plugins between your applications and externally with any compatible development community. Find out about the power of system workers and Wakanda’s datastore HTTP API to bring your own JavaScript tools to Wakanda Studio.
