What is SwellRT?

SwellRT is an API to handle objects in real-time and share them in a decentralized network:

Engage users with real-time collaborative features!
Documents, pads, polls,  chats, workflows, canvases, and more…

  • Give users freedom: users can choose where their data is stored
  • Build privacy aware apps that respect personal data
  • Facilitate interoperability and collaboration across apps

What’s the best about it?
