What is SwellRT?

SwellRT is an backend-as-a-service providing real-time and collaborative services to new or existing applications.

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

  • 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


Real-time Collaboration

Store, edit and share any type of data including files and rich-text documents in real time. Manage access control to objects at the app and user levels.

Open Source

Get the benefit of a community-built, reliable and secure platform. Install your own server and control where the data is stored and how it is managed.

Go Decentralized!

Building decentralized apps is very difficult. SwellRT makes it extremely easy to share objects transparently across servers, apps and users.

Simple but powerful API

Just share and edit JSON objects in real-time . Query objects from your client to the MongoDB based storage.
