Demo videos

Here's some nice videos of warpforge doing its thing:

You can also find lots of complete examples in the examples directory of the project repo — check ‘em out!

Real world software built with Warpforge

Real world Warpforge usage can be seen in two forms: Catalogs -- which contain info about released stuff -- and Workspaces -- which are

The Warpsys Catalog

The Warpsys Catalog is a public catalog of software built using Warpforge, and (mostly) using the Zapps linking conventions.

For example, you can find packages of software such as Bash, Python, Emacs, Helix, and many more there.

This catalog is rendered to the web at

The raw form of this catalog can also be found as JSON files in git, on github:

Real Workspaces

The instructions to produce the stuff found released in the Warpsys catalog are all here:

This source code repo contains one large a "workspace". Within it, there's lots of "modules", each generally producing one piece of software.

Note that this is an example of a pretty large workspace. Other workspaces may have only a single module in them, and be quite simpler!

Other Catalogs and Workspaces

Other catalogs and workspaces might be found in other places around the internet!

There is nothing special nor blessed about the "warpsys" catalog or workspace.
