Just out of curiosity, what is the size of Wt team?

Added by Plug Gulp over 1 year ago

I have always wondered, what is the size of the team that develops Wt, and what is the size of the company EmWeb? :)

That's a fine question and I think the "Wt-Community" is interessted to learn more in this regard :-)

And of course the follow-up question: What are the future plans for the Wt Framework in general? Is there a timeline and what features are planned?

I for myself would like to say Thank You for this great framework that allows "old school" C++ programmers like me to develop state of the art web-based applications!

That is an interesting question. I would love to know if there are big plans for Wt, or if Wt is being forgotten about.

I don't think Wt will be forgotten. EmWeb is a commercial company with Wt as their core product. Lot of companies use Wt. From companies with resource constraint devices to heavy medical applications. Take a look at https://emweb.be

Hey,

emweb has a team of 16 people and we're hiring. We have a few people who are responsible for day to day support, development and bug fixing of Wt, but planned developments can be assigned to anyone of the team.

Wt is definitely not being forgotten about, and development of new features continues. In the next release, you can expect:

  • integration of SAML in the Auth framework
  • Dbo Forms, a new framework to create forms that edit Dbo objects with minimal boilerplate code. A really nice feature for applications with lots of forms.
  • support for bootstrap 4 and bootstrap 5

We keep the roadmap updated for upcoming features.

Wim.

All egineers and under the same roof?

It is an impressive achievement to run EmWeb and build J/Wt at the same time with such a small team away from Silicon Valley ;)

I use Wt as a commercial customer, so I too am very curious if Wt will be staying up to date with emerging web technologies and security concerns. I guess things have seemed a little "maintenance mode" for a while, so I was curious.

What is your product? Not many talk about commercial products developed using Wt! Would love to know what product(s) you are developing using Wt.
