Built with empathy, not just ❤︎


Appsmith is a fast, easy, and secure way to build any custom internal tools. Here's how you build something:

  1. Create a page using pre-built UI components like table, charts, map viewers and forms.
  2. Connect the UI components to any REST API or databases like MySQL, Postgres, and MongoDB. Write any logic in JS.
  3. Deploy the interal tool to a custom URL and invite users to sign in with their Google acounts.

Do all this without depending on multiple UI libraries, coding authentication logic or writing any DB or API integrations. See the looped gif below to see how something gets built on Appsmith. It might remind you of Visual Basic.

Why Participate?

Recently, one of our users expressed their love & frustration with Appsmith on Twitter.

We are an open source project because we believe that software built in the open becomes better. This user's tweet clearly shows that our code has issues and as a small team we can't find them all.

Also, lots of folks want to contribute to OSS but they aren't developers or just don't know how to begin. That's why we are starting our journey by rewarding users for simply reporting bugs.

If that wasn't incentive enough, we have some prizes to sweeten the deal:

1 Grand prize for most number of qualified bugs

  • $1000 USD gift card or equivalent
  • Earn an Appsmith badge
  • Recognition on our README page

10 Runner up prizes

  • $50 USD gift card or equivalent
  • Earn an Appsmith badge
  • Recognition on our README page
You need to report a minimum of 2 bugs to qualify.

How can you participate?

  1. Try out the product by checking out our Getting Started guide.

  2. Report any bugs by creating a Github issue on this repository.

  3. Label those issues with the tag above-them to help us identify these issues quickly.

  4. Join our Discord channel and claim your prize.

Who is eligible?

Everyone is eligible for this program.

You don't necessarily need to be a developer to participate. Infact, most of our insightful bug reports in the past have come from non-developers.
