Zero setup, zero boilerplate

Every developer knows the struggle. You have a great idea for a new app you want to work on over the weekend. But Monday comes around and nothing’s done, because you got stuck. Stuck setting things up, stuck getting APIs to play nice with each other, stuck going down rabbit holes trying to figure out why things don’t work. It doesn’t have to be this way.
For each project, Gadget instantly spins up all of the infrastructure and features you need on the cloud. You write code for the features that make your application unique, not the stuff you’ve built ten million times.

What can you build?

If you can build it in JS, you can build it with Gadget, just faster. The platform’s built-in features and API connectors make it perfect for building Shopify apps, LLM-powered AI apps, and internal tools.

LLM-powered AI apps

Every Gadget project comes auth, billing, and connectors to OpenAI and other LLM-hosting providers. Simply plugin your AI-model’s API keys into Gadget, and extend the framework in Node.JS and React to get a full-featured SAAS app within hours.
