Public roadmap

Appwrite's public roadmap

This month, we launched the new public roadmap on GitHub. It is part of our commitment to transparency with the Appwrite community. It enables:

  • Increased transparency in our product priorities

  • Direct feedback route for the community

  • Further clarity in timelines to set expectations

The roadmap is designed to help us increase collaboration among the core team, contributors, maintainers, and Appwrite developers.

Read the announcement here.

The Appwriter is out!

Appwrite community members have started to receive their Appwriters, and the reviews are in! People love it.

Appwriter testimonials

We’re very proud of the overwhelmingly positive feedback from the community. Our team has worked tirelessly for the past six months to ensure that every detail, from the packaging to every key press, is perfect.

The Appwriter will be available for pre-order on the Appwrite store today! Visit our store to place your pre-order.

Does this mean we’re also a hardware company now?

Appwrite Messaging

Messaging page

Appwrite’s newest product Messaging now has its own product page (the first of its kind!). Messaging allows you to set up email, SMS and push notifications to your users from a single API.

You can find more in-depth information on how messaging works and even play around with the interactive animations.

Visit the brand-new page to find out more.
