Technology overview

Since computer users spend most of the time inside their browsers, we are building a browser extension which can be compared to a a single-page offline-first app.

We have chosen a unified core strategy for all of the frontend platforms: Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Safari, Opera, iOS, Android, Web, Windows, OS X which is written in JavaScript as well as the backend - Node.js.

There is also only one responsive UI across all of the supported platforms, with minor differences for each of them.

Backend

  • AWS
  • Node.js
  • Docker
  • CI / CD
  • Couchbase
  • Kubernetes

Browser extensions and Mobile apps

  1. UI - Angular.js + HTML + CSS around 20% of the code
  2. Core App - 80% of the browser extension code which is pure JavaScript, consisting of:
  • Form recognition for login, credit card, address and other form types
  • Enc/decryption part
  • Injected notifications inside the browser
  • Data models for accounts, credit cards..
  • Code injection in to websites
  • Rest / Http client for communication with the backend
  • PouchDB client-side database
  • Authentication / Authorization

This enables us to keep fast pace with new features. Above that, everything is written in a single language - JavaScript, which helps us a lot.
