Local-first software is an effort to make collaboration software less dependent on cloud services, and Automerge is an open-source library for realising local-first software. In this talk I explain our motivation for creating Automerge, and map out 7 years worth of research projects that are feeding into this project.

Forgive my bluntness, but the syntax
Is actually a sort of contradiction of terms.
If it was auto merging, i wouldn’t need to manually call merge… ; )
That said, it does look like a kick a$$ lib
We know the folks behind it pretty well. We have different needs for #dialog but it has great concepts in it.
And it seems very well documented and rather mature… I’ll need to try it out along side the bygonz development process!
