OpenResty has been open-source since its inception. Over the years, users from the community have applied our solutions to a wide range of business use cases.

From commercial websites to modern Web applications to network storage systems and growing possibilities, OpenResty is essential to an increasing variety of Web technologies and business industries. One common usage is to create full-fledged Web applications, such as e-commerce platforms, Web management systems, and large-scale streaming websites. Some other companies use it to build their distributed network storage system (including cloud storage applications). We have also seen companies use it for their high-traffic internet advertising platforms and complicated Web API management systems. Our community members even find their surprising ways to utilize OpenResty, one use case being to drive hardware systems like home-based companion robots.

Machine coding is deeply rooted in all OpenResty solutions as a unique differentiator. As a programmer, I envision OpenResty to lead the revolution of machine coding in tech and the industries.

By feeding the machine the industry domain and human intentions, it can start writing and optimizing code, testing effectively, generating human-readable documents automatically, and deploying large-scale computer systems accurately.

Similar to the manufacturing industry nowadays, humans widely benefit from robotic assembly automation; programmers in the future will also be liberated from repetitive business logic coding, enabled to focus on innovative and creative computer programming.
