We open-sourced the very best parts of Basecamp.


Ruby on Rails®

Ruby on Rails is the heart and soul of Basecamp. Since its release in 2004, Ruby on Rails has helped thousands of programmers rekindle their love for programming and encouraged many new programmers to join them. Learn how you can start building your next app right now with Ruby on Rails.

Trix

A rich text editor for everyday writing. Trix is an editor for writing messages, comments, articles, and lists—the simple documents most web apps are made of. It features a sophisticated document model, support for embedded attachments, and outputs terse and consistent HTML.

Turbolinks®

Turbolinks makes navigating your web application faster. Get the performance benefits of a single-page application without the added complexity of a client-side JavaScript framework. Use HTML to render your views on the server and link to pages as usual. When you follow a link, Turbolinks automatically fetches the page, swaps in its <body>, and merges its <head>, all without incurring the cost of a full page load. Don’t miss the Android and iOS adapters for Turbolinks, which allow you to build high-fidelity hybrid apps with native navigation and a single shared web view.

Stimulus

Stimulus is a JavaScript framework with modest ambitions. It doesn’t seek to take over your entire front-end—in fact, it’s not concerned with rendering HTML at all. Instead, it’s designed to augment your HTML with just enough behavior to make it shine. Stimulus pairs beautifully with Turbolinks to provide a complete solution for fast, compelling applications with a minimal amount of effort.
