A few questions (maybe there should be an FAQ? :))


thanks for your interest in this project :slight_smile: We are glad you asked these questions, as they’re among the most important points that we want to make clear (and the beta was made in order to bring them up).

  1. The app you write in HyperWeb will be available 24/24/365. Our backend is designed with resiliency and scalability in mind, and even if at the current time you might notice that there are some limitations on what you can run, in the future we will likely add additional resources as premium options, in order for you to host any kind of web application. This is our commitment: create a tool that makes you build any sort of application, without caring about deploy, but just about what you like the most: coding.

  2. The backend is completely programming-language agnostic. If we see that one of the most asked features is to support different programming languages, we will make sure to provide them as soon as possible.

  3. It’s a private beta, and we’re running on the honor system currently. We’ve got controls in place to lock it down to invitees only, but please don’t make us have to use them :slight_smile:

  4. Anyone that has “write permission” to your project can see the content of the .env file. That is: you and people that you invite using the “invite” button. Everyone else can see your “public” files, but “.env” is marked as private, so you can store all of your secrets there and share them only with people you trust. In the future we will make this point clearer.

Thanks again for your interest, hope to hear from you back soon.
