At Diawi, we are really proud to host and provide a service trusted by thousands of users everyday.
This wouldn't be possible without the help of some very well made tools and components. Here is a quick overview of what we use.
On the back-end
- php, php7 since 7/08/2016 (hhvm before) [updated]
- symfony, mostly silex and a few components:
- blackfire + tsung for performance checking
On the front-end
- jquery, normalize, require, handlebars
- NProgress for those light progress bars at the top
- alertify for various popups and feedback messages
- clipboard for copy to clipboard
- iscroll for some scrolling areas
- plupload for nice uploads
- raphaeljs for the graphs
- grapnel as a small js pushstate router
- twitter-fetcher for the twitter feed in the footer
- mostly custom CSS using SASS and parts of:
- Framework7 for most of the webapp
- gulp for js/css processing (minification, Babel ES6, ...)
- icomoon to generate a custom icon font
On the servers
- MySQL, with Percona Server
- redis for quick access to some live data (stats, sessions, ...)
- letsencrypt for SSL certificates
- beanstalk for processing queues, one is for example used when you upload files
- Jenkins for our continuous integration and deployment processes
- Gitter for communication with users, and internally too (+ their IRC bridge https://irc.gitter.im)
- GitHub and GitLab for code hosting
- ghost for the blog, self-hosted
- PhpStorm for development
This fits quiet well today's Diawi, and of course is always open to changes as we add new ideas and features.
