RealWorld Example Applications

Stay on the bleeding edge — join our GitHub Discussions! 🎉

See how the exact same Medium.com clone (called Conduit) is built using different frontends and backends. Yes, you can mix and match them, because they all adhere to the same API spec 😮😎

While most "todo" demos provide an excellent cursory glance at a framework's capabilities, they typically don't convey the knowledge & perspective required to actually build real applications with it.

RealWorld solves this by allowing you to choose any frontend (React, Angular 2, & more) and any backend (Node, Django, & more) and see how they power a real world, beautifully designed fullstack app called "Conduit".

Read the full blog post announcing RealWorld on Medium.

Implementations

Over 100 implementations have been created using various languages, libraries, and frameworks.

See the list of implementations on the CodebaseShow website >>>

Or you can view upcoming implementations (WIPs).

How do I get up & running?

Follow the instructions in the README of whatever frontend and/or backend repo's you want to get up and running.

Can you teach me how to build each stack from scratch?

Yup! We've built step-by-step tutorials for all of our stacks that teach you how to go from

git init
all the way to the production ready application. Start learning now >>>

Special thanks to...

RealWorld wouldn't be possible without the help of the open source community reviewing codebases, creating new app implementations, and many other tasks that help push this project forward. We especially appreciate the OSS leaders who have helped contribute to RealWorld:

  • Dan Abramov (creator of Redux) for helping spark the initial idea, getting the Redux community involved, as well as graciously taking the time to provide feedback on the Redux codebase
  • Max Lynch (creator of Ionic) for taking the time to provide guidance in the early days of this project
  • Addy Osmani (creator of TodoMVC) for helping spark the initial idea and his amazing work with TodoMVC
  • TodoMVC (team & contributors) for their exemplary & successful work; their project & org has been an invaluable analogy for us as we've built out RealWorld
  • James Brewer (docs contributor to Django) for countless brainstorming sessions, helping name this project, and creating the Django codebase + tutorial
