Yjs, one of the most powerful and robust frameworks for real-time collaborative editing, enables developers to add shared editing capabilities to any application with relatively little effort. In order to make it so easy to use and extend Yjs, the framework abstracts all the complexities, many moving pieces, and deep technical concepts involved in empowering offline first, peer to peer, real time collaboration.
In this Tag1 Team Talk, we continue our deep dive into Yjs with the founder and project lead of this collaborative editing framework to learn more about how it enables not only collaborative text editing but also collaborative drawing, collaborative 3D modeling, and other compelling use cases. In particular, we focus on the three core features that make up any great collaborative editing application: awareness, offline editing, and versioning with change histories.
Join Kevin Jahns (Real-Time Collaboration Systems Lead at Tag1 Consulting and Founder and Project Lead of Yjs), Fabian Franz (Senior Technical Architect and Performance Lead at Tag1 Consulting), Michael Meyers (Managing Director at Tag1 Consulting), and moderator Preston So (Contributing Editor at Tag1 Consulting and Principal Product Manager at Gatsby) for the second part of our deep dive series on Yjs directly from its creator (and excited learners).
