AppJet Launches!

As of today, we’re officially launched! That means anyone can come to
the site, read about our framework, use the IDE, and create an account
to publish an app.

It’s hard to launch something to the world. How do you know when it’s
good enough? We learned at Y Combinator that the real question is,
How soon can you launch? What needs to be done that’s keeping you
from launching today? The bottom line is that any task or feature for
which you postpone launch had better be worth it; what if you launch
and discover that the people most interested in your site don’t care
about that feature?

However, the fact that we’re launching means we feel that AppJet has a
core set of functionality that makes it already very useful,
especially for quick and simple web apps, where normally setting up
the hosting would take longer than writing the app.

We’re excited to introduce AppJet to the world. We’ve got big plans
for it, so think of this as just the beginning.

    Congrats, guys (from a fellow YC’er)! Looking forward to getting some time to kick the tires.

    I really loved the concept. You guys really got me hooked into the platform until I got to complete my first reasonably interesting AppJet app:

    I guess the best way to celebrate your great idea is coding apps! đŸ™‚ I’m planning on building a twitter-esque miniblogging app for me and a group of friends to use.

    What’s the license of the code we are publishing at AppJet? I’m a free software advocate and the whole platform looked to me like a very promising playground for developing software collaboratively.

    Do you have any plans on making it easy for an AppJet app mantainer to accept and apply patches from other users? I guess you have almost all the pieces already in place to easily implement something for that.

    Keep the great work flowing!
