About

A labor of love

Our mission is to make life better for developers.

We're starting with React web apps and moving forward from there. When we connected styles and JSX to the living DOM, sparks flew.

With some amazing dev superpowers already up and firing, we're tremendously proud of (and hopelessly addicted to) what we're building, with you.

Our community

Hundreds of developers, designers, and community members have worked to make MightyMeld the success it is today.

We tested, and tested, and tested together. We broke things. We fixed them. We talked and imagined together. We tried things out, culled the failures, and nourished the wins.

Long conversations about process. Ruminations on the history and progression of web tech. Venting sessions. Support and love. We've been through it all together, and it shows in the work.

A band of pirates...

In the summer of 2022, four nerds came together on a mission to make web code visual in a way that worked with the way engineers want to code things.

Tim and Steven had spent years together in the trenches at Happy Returns, building the stack that supported their PayPal exit, themselves supported by many a Caffè Breve.

John came in as if from a dream, as a friend of a friend, a person who once built a Haskell compiler for fun, and craved the kinds of thrills you can only get by building a system that compiles code halfway and then takes it back in the other direction.

From the northern hinterlands, a kindred spirit was found in Daniel, chasing a white whale that kept slipping out of his grasp. At Brand.ai and then InVision and... could this be the one? He was willing to give it a try.

It was bumpy in the early days. Once, perhaps twice a week the road would end. The iframes and ASTs and postMessages and webpacks and Babels had... limitations. “Wait a day” someone would say. “Remember the last fatal problem? it went away.”

As we conquered feasibility, usability loomed large. Had we ever built a creative tool before? It's not about going down premeditated paths. Everything has to flow as you go from one modality to the next. With new navigators and prop scrapers and dependency graphs and a very fancy right panel, we chipped away. And watched MightyMeld progress from kinda doing things, to scooting along, to full-blown spreading our wings and flying.

One by one, we became addicted to MightyMeld. And once we had all felt it, we knew it was time to share it with the world.

We hope you enjoy MightyMeld. It’s fast. It’s natural. It transforms your work. Together, we will elevate the quality of the visual web with MightyMeld and the next generation of web tooling.
