Mauve Software Inc is a consultancy that specializes in cutting edge technology.
We strive to take science fiction ideas and turn them into reality.
We take a holistic approach to decentralization by applying it to every level of the stack.
Unlike many blockchain solutions, we take a no-nonsense approach to
decentralized software with a focus on empowering users with
local-first software that works offline and keeps data in the hands of users.
We can take you from initial ideation, to MVPs, and to fully deployed products,
and help explain how the technology works along the way.
Decentralized and Distributed Systems
We believe in robust systems which don't rely on single points of failure.
This leads to systems that work in dynamic network environements and scale
with the network as more data is entered into the system. This is acheived
using data structures like
and Conflict-Free Replicated Data Types.
Peer to Peer Software
The status quo for most applications are cloud solutions which centralize
users' data and act as gatekeepers to their interaction. This has negative
side effects in the form of censorship, lack of availability in spotty
internet locations, and lack of user autonomy as their networks are held
Peer to Peer software, or P2P,
is an alternate architecture where users store their data on their own devices
and connect directly to each other to share it. We specialize in leveraging
protocols such as Dat,
and many more to
build robust, Local-First
software which improves user experience, privacy, and avoids costly cloud bills.
Not every place in the world has a stable connection to the internet.
Rural and remote communities, festivals, and developing nations are often
unable to use traditional internet based applications. Mesh networks enable
novel information technologies to thrive in these areas through the use of
ad hoc Networks. These pair well with P2P software to enable fully local
applications. If two people are within wireless range of each other,
they should have the same UX as though they were connected over the internet.
Vitual and Augmented Reality
In the spirit of Cyberpunk
dreams of the past, we enjoy exploring what's possible with augmeting reality
with technology. Our focus is on productivity software deployed using
WebXR. This gives us
flexability in deploying to different headsets without being locked down
to a sinle game engine or proprietary API. We are also strong believers in
open source headsets like the Leap27 and
Our goal is to combine all our areas of expertise into a robust
local-first cyberpsace that works across mesh networks and automatically
distributes spatialized content across devices.
Web App Development
We are experts in the web platform and have been developing applications using full
stack web technologies for almost a decade with Node.js,
React, and have a deep level of knowledge of
In addition to front end web development, we have experience orchastrating back end
infrastrucutre and databases with Docker and
have extensive knowledge of Linux based systems and cloud deployments.
Mobile App Development
We have been developing cross-platform mobile applications using web technologies
such as Apache Cordova and
React-Native on both Android and iOS for almost
a decade, and are comfortalble setting up the full process from initial implementation
and publishing on the respective app stores.
Desktop App Development
Although most applications can be most easily deployed through the web, we have extensive
knowledge in using Electron to deploy desktop
applications on Windows, Linux, and MacOS.
Open Source Community Organizing
We are strong believers in
Open Source Software
and have been engaging with and helping to organize open source communities for the
betterment of the commons.
