Docker Compose

Docker is an open-source platform and set of tools designed to simplify the development, deployment, and management of applications through containerization.



Flask is a lightweight WSGI web application framework. It is designed to make getting started quick and easy, with the ability to scale up to complex applications. 

Flask Blueprints

A Flask Blueprint is a way to organize a Flask web application into smaller, reusable components or modules.



HTMX is a JavaScript library that allows you to build web applications with modern, dynamic user interfaces while keeping the server-side rendering and simplicity of traditional web development. 
It's often used in conjunction with HTML, Python, and other server-side technologies.



Laravel is an open-source PHP web application framework that provides a robust set of tools and libraries for building web applications. It was created by Taylor Otwell and was first released in 2011.


Livewire is a full-stack framework for building dynamic web applications in Laravel using only PHP, without requiring extensive JavaScript code. 
It enables developers to create interactive, real-time user interfaces by combining the power of Laravel's server-side processing with the convenience of front-end components.



Multitenancy is a software architecture or model where a single instance of an application or software system serves multiple tenants or clients. 
Each tenant is a separate and distinct group of users who share common access to the same system, but with their data and configuration kept isolated from other tenants.

Multitenancy in Django

Multitenancy can be implemented in Django, a popular Python web framework, using various techniques and approaches. 
Django provides a flexible environment that allows you to design and build multitenant applications.

Multitenancy in Flask

Flask is a lightweight and flexible Python web framework that allows you to implement multitenancy in your web applications. 
Like in Django, there are several approaches to implement multitenancy in Flask.

Multitenancy in NodeJS

Implementing multitenancy in a Node.js application involves designing your codebase and database schema to support multiple tenants, each with its data and configurations.

MUI React

MUI, or Material-UI, is a popular open-source React UI framework for building web applications with a modern and visually appealing design. 
It is based on Google's Material Design guidelines, which provide a set of principles and guidelines for creating user-friendly and aesthetically pleasing user interfaces.


Makefiles are used for automating tasks, especially in software development. 
They are widely used for compiling code, managing dependencies, and executing various commands in a consistent and efficient manner.



Node.js is an open-source, server-side JavaScript runtime environment that allows developers to execute JavaScript code outside of a web browser. 
It is designed for building scalable and high-performance network applications, particularly server-side web applications.
Node.js is known for its event-driven, non-blocking I/O (input/output) model, which makes it well-suited for handling asynchronous operations and real-time applications.


NPM, which stands for "Node Package Manager," is the default package manager for Node.js, a popular JavaScript runtime environment. 
NPM is a command-line tool and an online registry of open-source JavaScript packages and libraries.
It is used for managing, installing, and sharing reusable code packages and dependencies for Node.js applications.


Next.js is an open-source JavaScript framework for building web applications. 
It is primarily used for building React-based web applications but extends React's capabilities with features like server-side rendering (SSR), static site generation (SSG), and routing, making it well-suited for a wide range of web development projects.
Next.js simplifies many aspects of web development, offering a more structured and efficient development experience.


Nuxt.js is an open-source JavaScript framework that is built on top of Vue.js. It is designed to simplify and enhance the development of server-rendered Vue.js applications.
Nuxt.js takes care of many of the configuration details and provides a structured framework for building universal (server-side rendered) or single-page web applications.



PHP, which stands for "Hypertext Preprocessor," is a widely used open-source scripting language designed for web development.



React, often referred to as React.js or ReactJS, is an open-source JavaScript library for building user interfaces (UIs) or user interface components for web applications. 
It was developed and is maintained by Facebook (now Meta Platforms, Inc.) and a community of individual developers and companies.
React is widely used for creating interactive and dynamic web applications.

React App Generator

A React app generator is a software tool or platform designed to automate the process of creating React-based web applications. 
React is a popular JavaScript library for building user interfaces, and React app generators help developers set up the initial project structure, generate boilerplate code,
and provide a foundation for building React applications more efficiently.



Simpllo is an open-source site builder that helps anyone to create landing pages and websites on top of modern UI Kits - actively supported by AppSeed.


SSR stands for Server-Side Rendering, a technique used in web development to improve the performance and SEO (Search Engine Optimization) of web applications. 
SSR is often associated with JavaScript frameworks like React, Vue.js, and Angular, which are primarily designed for client-side rendering (CSR)


Virtual DOM

The Virtual DOM (Virtual Document Object Model) is a concept and technique used in web development, particularly in libraries like React, 
to improve the efficiency and performance of updating the user interface (UI) of web applications.
The Virtual DOM is not a real, physical representation of the web page's structure but rather a lightweight in-memory representation of the actual Document Object Model (DOM) tree.
