    Great time saver

    by Jim Waxler on

    This is an excellent Rest API platform. They have a lot of resources to get you up and running and it saved a lot of time over building my own solution.

    Simply Marvelous

    by Xavier Badcock on

    Besides being, IMHO, the best back-end skeleton money can't buy, they respond quickly to issues on GitHub and have a full-time support staff as well. Quite nice. And the scripting feature they just released is brilliant!

    Since "DreamFactory Services Platform" is such a mouthful, I urge the team to come up with something catchy. With less syllables.

    How about "Marvelous"?
