Successful customers

What we've been working on

No matter the specific industry, we’ve built great things for many companies, startups and entrepreneurs. Have a look at the case studies!

Adobe Generator (for Photoshop)

When Adobe needed a way to expose a realtime API in Photoshop, Lukibear built Adobe Generator. Powered by Node.js, is now part of Photoshop CC and powers the assets export pipeline and is part of many companies' workflow.

TinyMCE (for Ephox)

When Ephox needed a new website and documentation for the open source text editor TinyMCE, Lukibear stepped up and delivered. Using modern tooling and workflow automation tinymce.com won plaudits from the TinyMCE community.

BlueBank (for undisclosed customer)

Lukibear prototyped the BlueBank mobile app in just one month. It's an online banking solution that merges saving, budgeting and investing altogether. We helped the entrepreneur behind this project to pitch his ideas for a successful round of seed investments, by showing an already working prototype.

Cancare (for undisclosed customer)

Cancare is an iOS app related to the world of the medical cannabis. Prototyped and developed over a three months timeframe, it focuses on both shopping and delivery aspect of the business.

rtail (Open Source Project)

Rtail is an open source project built by Lukibear to help developers centralize logs thrugh a modern interface. With more 1000+ stars on GitHub is used by many companies to improve DevOps and CI. Rtail was meticulously designed and built using Node.js and Angualr.js, and is actively maintained by the Lukibear team.

Careers (for undisclosed customer)

Careers needed a platform to connect HR and candidates, without exposing their sensible information before a mutual agreement. Lukibear managed to ship a MVP built in three months, used later on to start a funding round.

Node.js Interactive (Portland, OR)

Check out Lukibear's presentation at Node Interactive showing how rtail can help you manage your realtime logs. We love sharing our knowledge. Contact us for speaking inquiries.

Transparency and honesty is important to us. Yes, we have many more success stories we'd love to share. At the same time we don't mind sharing what we learned when things didn't quite go to plan, to save you time and money.

Let’s discuss your project

We value time more than anything. We iterate through tight user-validation and continuous deployment cycles to ship sooner and more often. Delivering Minimum Viable Products is what we do.

We help you define what success means for you. By starting with the end in mind, we'll help refine your vision to ship only the most valuable features and deliver your product in the shortest time-span possible.
