Framework Maker for JavaScript Applications

License Contributors PRs Welcome Code of Conduct tweet

Gasket helps developers make frameworks to power their apps. There are several presets and plugins available with which to make frameworks and construct apps. The various commands, lifecycles, and structures are all enabled by different plugins you can choose to use.

If you are new to Gasket, you might want to first give it a spin following the Quick Start Guide. From there, reference the guides to start developing your apps and making your frameworks.

The tables of contents below are generated by the docs command enabled by @gasket/plugin-docs, which is recommended to view app docs. Links will load the docs for the plugin or package that implements the feature.
