What language is Bubble written in and is it open source?


It’s written in coffeescript, and running on node.js. We’re thinking about open source but haven’t decided yet the best way to get there. That’s in our plan.


It’s amazing to see the progress of computer science.

Bubble is written with coffeescript and running on Node.js.

Node.js is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome’s V8 JavaScript engine.

V8 is Google’s open source high-performance JavaScript engine, written in C++.

C++ was created from C with influences from Simula.

And the list goes on and on.

No need to say “Hello World” anymore.

Just say, “Sup? You come here often?”


And Bubble site is build with Bubble engine :slight_smile:
I’m impressed.


Me too! I love it when I see a company eat their own dog food! ( )


In February 1980, Apple Computer : “We believe the typewriter is obsolete. Let’s prove it inside before we try and convince our customers.” Bubble ‘name’ make people laugh (and not take seriously the product). I believe it’s a matter of time before reaching success. Bravo to Emmanuel and it’s team for supporting their dream. We really believe in you guys.


You need a medium bro

The very first time I came across Bubble, I felt like some dew in heaven fell on me, it got me thinking if the dream of building social networking is now becoming reality. Essentially, I always believed there could be a way to build some great app without writings any single line of code. It has happened and I just want to say thank you, Emmanuel, that name stand for God Is with us you ars a God sent. Love :heart: Bubble.

Hi @emmanuel,

I was wondering if open sourcing Bubble is still in your plans? If so, any timeline?

Thank you

@caden Probably never going to be open source.
