Remake Framework

Build full-stack web apps with only HTML and CSS

Remake lets you convert an HTML and CSS design into a fully-functional web app with a few custom attributes.

  • Simple syntax
  • User accounts & persistent data
  • Inline editing & file uploads
  • No backend coding

If you're a designers or front-end developer who wants to build web apps, Remake was made for you.

UPDATE 🎉: Remake v2.0 is out and the docs are up-to-date!

Why Remake

What if every HTML webpage knew how to save, edit, and add new items to itself?

Have you ever created a static website and wished people could just start using it? Remake lets you do that.

  • Build full-stack apps with front-end code. Remake comes with user accounts, a persistent database, and everything you need to deploy a working application.
  • Add CMS-like features on top of static templates. Users can login to your site and edit their own copy of it.
  • So easy to use it feels like prototyping. But it's designed for building scalable, production web apps.
  • You keep control over your design. You can use any CSS framework and style your pages however you want.
  • Server rendered, secure, and fast. This makes it ideal for SEO and loading pages quickly. The front-end framework isn't even loaded if a user can't edit the current page.

How it works

Creating web applications is hard. You need to install packages, configure your build process, create API endpoints, set up a database, and load in some demo data, and that's all before even getting started!

It can be easier!

Remake makes it possible to build a web app entirely in your front-end code.

It does this by basically converting your page into a database, so when you move elements around on the page, their data is also moved!

Remake also comes with a built in inline edit popover for editing data at the click of a button.

This makes it possible to handle a lot of complicated CRUD operations automatically by adding a single data-* attribute:

  • Attaching data to elements
  • Editing & removing data from the page
  • Moving data around the page
  • Rendering new data into the page

And there's much more!


In the near future, Remake will also have support for:

  • Automatic form handling
  • Image cropping and manipulation
  • Sharing data between users
  • Real-time updates
