What a year. Almost a year ago, we released version 1.0 of the Jovo Framework, with the goal to empower developers and professional teams to build great voice apps, faster. Since then, teams of all sizes, including successful voice design studios like Opearlo, global agencies like VaynerMedia, podcast networks like Gimlet Media, and even government organizations have been using our tools to build Alexa Skills and Google Actions.

And this is just the beginning. Our goal is to build the number one toolkit for makers who want to create apps for voice and beyond. And this requires effort and constant reinvention. This is why, together with our community, we completely rebuilt the Jovo Framework from the ground up.

Jovo v2 is here.

New Architecture

We have completely rewritten the framework code, moved from NodeJS to Typescript, and separated the architecture into modules. This way, the code is now easier to maintain and update.

And even better, there is now a large variety of middlewares that you can plug into to extend the framework’s core functionality.

Jovo now offers a lot of new integrations that allow you to host your Alexa Skills and Google Actions almost wherever you want, store user data in a large variety of databases, and even manage content with Google Sheets.
