Easiest way to toss up an app with a backend

Hey all!

We’re working on https://leftpad.dev/ and want thoughts!

  • It quickly sets you up with an ubuntu server
  • You can choose a template - or start from scratch
  • Start coding your app with no setup or wait

For example, you can use one of our chat app templates to immediately get

  • a working chat app using expo, node and postgres
  • working https and websockets
  • preview window showing your app running in iOS
  • live reloading as you change your code

Want to know if this is something you’d find useful!

Let me know what you think – does it make sense? would you ever use it? Is it something you’d ever pay for?

Best, Raphael
