Olympe is a data-centric app composition platform.
Applications are composed by combining bricks together. Basically, a brick represents any functionality -- mathematic or logic operations, visual components, data models -- used to build applications and services.
At their core, Olympe applications are composed of data, not code. Projects, apps, screens, functions defined are stored as data, introducing the Software-as-Data notion. The Olympe Virtual Machine interprets these data and transforms them into a running application.
Olympe provides two tools to compose applications:
- DRAW is a visual editor, which allows building and combining bricks together
As of today you must be a member of the Olympe community to download Olympe, but get in touch and we'll be happy to onboard you!
- The Guides section has tutorials without too much context and theory for those who want to start building quickly
- The Reference section provides the underlying context and principles for those who want to dig deeper
As a teaser, here is a 2-minute video showing the creation of a pure front-end app to play with geolocation and reverse geocoding.
