Ustack – A Web Application Stack Focused on Understanding

Designed, developed, and maintained a stack of open-source JavaScript libraries for building web applications.

The stack comprises front- and back-end features and is composed of ten libraries: dale (functional loops), teishi (validation), lith (HTML/CSS generation), recalc (event system), cocholate (DOM manipulation), gotoB (a front-end framework integrating the previous five libraries), cicek (a web server), giz (an authentication layer), astack (asynchronicity) and kaboot (devops toolset).

The ustack has been forged through radically minimizing the lines of code of each of its libraries. The entire ustack actually cannot be more than 4096 lines (2048 front-end + 2048 back-end).


A detailed technical document specifying how I write back ends for web applications. It covers server architecture, stack decisions, authentication, validation, code structure, provisioning, and maintenance.


An application for musicians of all ages and skill levels. Create bands with matching loops of multiple instruments and genres. Practice, jam, and compose with fresh music always!
