Pageforest helps you build complete web applications without having to write any
server-side code. You can build your application using standard web technologies
hosting, user authentication, and data storage.
What's a Pageforest App?
jQuery, or jQuery mobile,
Because it is uses web standards, your App can target desktop browsers, mobile browsers (e.g., iPhone and
Android), and tablet devices (e.g., the iPad).
Yet, web standards lack a method of providing your users Cloud-based storage. Pageforest provides
a unified document storage service, so your App has a simple way to save it's own state to the Cloud.

User Accounts - Each Pageforest user is authenticated by the Pageforest server. Your application
does not need to implement user account management.
Cloud-based Document Storage - Each Pageforest user is given storage for their
own document collection in the Cloud. When a user authorizes your application, your App
can create and store documents to the user's collection.
Rich Permissions Model - User documents can be public, private, or shared with a specific
group of other users; all under user-control.
standard user interface for user sign-in, as well as simple data storage and retrieval API's. Pageforest is
designed to be simple to implement, so you can focus on the details of your application, and not have
to spend too much time on Pageforest integration.
Standard REST Interfaces - Pageforest data is accessed through standard HTML requests (GET,
PUT, and POST), enabling use from other web services, widgets, and mobile applications.
Web-based IDE - You can use standard desktop-based editing tools to create your
Pageforest application. But Pageforest also provides an online
application editor that you can use to edit your
source files and upload images.
Real-time App Support - Write multi-user games, and chat-like Apps using Pageforest's
real-time notification API's.
Reliability - Pageforest is backed by Google's Cloud-based service, giving a high level
of scalability and reliability to the Pageforest service.
Pageforest is FREE! - Pageforest is free for developers. Our long-term goal is to help developers
monetize their web Apps through an online App Directory and Store. You may also keep your Apps
free and use ads to monetize your App. Pageforest users are given a generous free quota for
storage and usage (we will offer premium subscription plans in the future).
