Architect is an open source project hosted by the OpenJS Foundation and it is totally ok to ask for help! Use the issue tracker to file bugs, request features, or even just to ask a question.

Helping out

Architect welcomes everyone to help make it better. Please familiarize yourself with the Begin Community Code of Conduct and introduce yourself in the issue trackers or chat!

We ask that you do your part in helping us ensure a safe, positive, inclusive, constructive, and welcoming environment for all.

Project history

The app.arc manifest takes inspiration from UNIX ‘run command’ files (like .vimrc, .bashrc, etc). Architect started out as arc which itself was an acronym for “Amazon run commands”.

The code was developed building Begin and granted to JS Foundation in July of 2017 under the Apache-2.0 license.
