The Sølid Book


Sølid is poised to redefine the landscape of JavaScript runtimes, providing a seamless programming experience for server, desktop, and mobile computing. By eliminating the need for developers to relearn their programming skills, Sølid empowers them to effortlessly transition between different platforms.

What sets Sølid apart is its universality. It's designed to operate on a wide array of operating systems, including iOS, Android, macOS, Windows, and Linux, wherever both V8 and Golang are accessible. This broad compatibility ensures that developers can utilize Sølid's capabilities across a multitude of environments without facing compatibility roadblocks.

Sølid's vision extends beyond traditional platforms. It aspires to unify decentralized computing within a single application runtime. This means that developers can harness its power to create applications that leverage decentralized infrastructure, enhancing security, resilience, and user control. Furthermore, Sølid simplifies complex internet architectures, streamlining the development process by abstracting intricacies and allowing developers to focus on creating valuable applications.

The inclusion of containerd support, a widely used runtime for containers like Docker, highlights Sølid's adaptability to modern software deployment practices. By accommodating containerized workloads, Sølid eases the development and deployment of applications in containerized environments, fostering efficient, scalable, and portable solutions.

As Sølid paves the way for the future, it envisions a more cohesive and decentralized computing landscape. By facilitating the seamless integration of various platforms, streamlining complex internet structures, and supporting modern containerization practices, Sølid is propelling the programming experience into a new era of accessibility, efficiency, and versatility.
