Join a New Summer Hackathon From Wijmo & Weavy

We (Wijmo) and Weavy are hosting a fun hackathon this summer! The theme of the hackathon is “striking balance.” The idea is to leverage some public data to build something meaningful.

You can use Wijmo UI components to visualize the data in a meaningful or interesting way. And then add collaboration to your app using Weavy. Both Wijmo and Weavy can help jump-start your project so you can build something amazing in little time.

There is no limit to what you can create. We are open to any and all ideas. No matter your experience level, we hope you will join and give it a shot!

And of course, there will be interesting prizes handed out to winners.

What is Wijmo?

Wijmo is a set of JavaScript UI components meant to save developers time when building applications. Wijmo offers DataGrids, Charts, and much more. So developers can jump-start their efforts using our powerful tools.

What is Weavy?

Weavy offers collaboration tools to embed inside JavaScript applications. Weavy enables users to engage each other to make faster, better decisions through contextual collaboration using in-app chat, activity feeds, and document collaboration.

Our Example Application

We want to help everyone get started, so we made a sample app using Wijmo and Weavy together!

This sample is a simple sales dashboard with collaboration, where the datagrid and chart are Wijmo controls, and the chat is from Weavy.

You can run or remix the project from Glitch here: Wijmo Weavy Hackathon sample on Glitch

Or download it from GitHub here: Wijmo-Weavy-Hackathon on GitHub

It's a very simple app, but it clearly shows how to use each product. And as you can see, it takes very little code to get Wijmo and Weavy working. Wijmo provides the powerful UI components, and Weavy provides the collaborative chat component. They are quite complimentary for building apps that offer collaboration on top of data visualization!

Feel free to use this sample as a learning tool or even fork it to start your project. Of course, you can get much more creative than we did.

We also have hundreds of Wijmo demos for JavaScript, Angular, React, and Vue! They are an excellent resource for learning about the powerful features in our components. You might also want to follow our Getting Started Guide for JavaScript, Angular, React, or Vue.

Join the Hackathon!

Please join us in the hackathon and build something really inspiring with our tools.
