Is React still the right choice for Owncast in 2023?

Owncast (an open source live video & web chat server) underwent a redesign lately and its creator, Gabe Kangas, has been writing about that process and the choices he made along the way.

This post discusses the before and after of migrating to React. Covering Gabe’s thoughts from the developer experience, contributor recruiting pipeline & productivity standpoints.

Take ownership of your live streams with Owncast

Gabe Kangas:

The new release of Owncast –the self-hosted, open source live streaming server– opened up its first set of 3rd party APIs. So not only can you run your own live streams and own your content, but you can build bots, integrate it in to 3rd party services and be super creative in encouraging chat engagement in new ways.

Looks pretty slick.
