Awesome Stacks

StackShare

Tech stacks for building different applications and features.

Awesome Stacks is a community-curated list of tech stacks for building different applications and features. It is open source and inspired by the original awesome list.

Each stack in the list has a name, description, and list of a few of the key tools and technologies. Optionally, it links to a tutorial, starter kit or boilerplate that makes it easy to get started with.

Got a stack you think is a great way to build something? Please edit this file and add it! Check out https://github.com/stackshareio/awesome-stacks/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING.md for more information.

Browsing the stacks

Stacks can be browsed in two places—on the README and on awesomestacks.dev. The site, built with Gatsby and React, displays logos and metrics about each tool listed in the README by pulling data from the GitHub and StackShare APIs.
