Right, I see what your getting at, very interesting ... looks very well thought out with these services, pipelines, data transforms and so on:

restspace.io/

Very cool project and a great effort, I've saved this to my notes, looks worth trying out. By the way is it open source? I saw a couple of Github repos (github.com/restspace) but looks like that covers only a small part of it. Ah I see the answer here in the docs:

"We are also considering open-sourcing the runtime so you can run it wherever you wish"

So that would be "not yet but maybe in the future".

Many thanks for the kind words! Yes, basically I'd love to open source this but it will never fulfil its promise unless there is some cashflow to support development. Quite likely it will work as an open source project with a paid for hosting like the model Wordpress has, however it needs some thought how to do that without losing the chance to make some revenue. I'll definitely open source components which it makes sense to do.

Yes I definitely see what you mean, I get your point, totally.
