Whether it’s beautiful digital art, handy tools to help you do your work, or a site for your project or cause, you’ll find things on Glitch that remind us the web can still be a fun, creative place full of unexpected surprises.
But Glitch isn’t an app store — it’s a creative community. We give you the most intuitive, magical tools for creating any app or website that you can imagine. Whether you’re an expert coder or have never written a line of code in your life, Glitch is for you. And it’s free!
If you see an app that you like, just jump in and try it out. If it’s not exactly what you want, or inspires you to create your own idea, just remix the app and tweak it to your heart’s content. We handle all the complicated parts of development, letting you focus on the fun part - building your idea.
Check back on Glitch each day, and we’ll show you cool, inspiring, useful apps and sites that you won’t see anywhere else, made by some of the most creative people on the internet.
How does Glitch work?
With working example apps to remix, a code editor to modify them, instant hosting and deployment - anybody can build a web app on Glitch, for free.
- Start by remixing
You never have to start from a blank slate. Remix a full, working app to personalize it for your needs, or build on the most popular and powerful developer frameworks to create your app.
- Real collaboration
There's no need for complicated version control — the built-in editor lets you, and anybody else you invite, edit code all at once and undo mistakes as they happen. It's a lot like working together in Google Docs.
- It's fun, but it's not a toy
Glitch isn't a "dumbed down" version of a real developer environment — your Glitch app runs on the exact same cloud infrastructure and Node.js engine that the best developers use to run their apps. We've just made it easier for you to get started.
Here's what else Glitch provides:
- Instant deployment
- Automatic hosting on a secure URL
- Visual version control
- CDN for assets
- Use and install any NPM packages
- Secure storage of secrets and credentials
- The ability to help each other with code problems in real-time
- One-click licenses and codes of conduct
- Full console access
- Import any hosted Git repo from GitHub, GitLab, Bitbucket, or anywhere else
- Export projects to GitHub
- Custom profiles and team pages
- Server-side debugger
- Complete code portability - no proprietary protocols or libraries
All built around the friendliest dev community in the world — comprised of the most creative coders, designers, developers, artists, activists and educators. People just like you.
Built by a company that gives a damn
Glitch is made by Fog Creek Software. We've been around since 2000 as one of the most influential small tech companies in the world. In the past, our team invented Trello to help manage projects, we co-created Stack Overflow to answer any question a developer needs, and we built FogBugz, which pioneered bug-tracking.
Glitch is part of that legacy, building on all we've learned to help anybody make the app of their dreams.
Of course, this site was made on Glitch too
