Building your app is as easy as

Katapult is a powerful build automation toolkit running on Node.js with a high-performance caching system built-in. You can automate installation, testing and build routines by simply declaring commands in .katapult.yml files.


We love to share with other code monkeys!

At Launchdeck we believe in sharing code and knowledge with the community. That’s why Katapult, the build automation engine at the heart of Launchdeck, is hosted and maintained publicly on GitHub, as well as several supporting modules.

Through Launchdeck we strive to complete the modern web development workflow with a deployment tool that saves you time and stress, so you can focus on making cool apps by automating all the boring chores.
