Any good OS isomorphic CRM or ERP?

I'm checking online trying to find out how many ERP and CRM are out there that implement JavaScript in both backend and frontend but couldn't find much.

Do you know any open source CRM and/or ERP that's made entirely with JavaScript?

Erxes is an open-source CRM/marketing platform written in TypeScript. Backend is powered by Apollo and frontend by React. Check out the architecture docs.

From a quick glance it doesn't seem to be isomorphic in the sense that the same code runs both on backend and frontend, and it doesn't do server-side rendering with hydration like Next.js et al. I doubt there is a mature CRM or ERP which does that and I don't think it would bring much benefits.

Thank you for sharing @jnv ! I'll take a look at it 😁

Thinking out loud, a tool like a CRM or ERP does not need SSR by the way, it's a convenience on SEO but in this case users work in a private site with those kind of tools so I don't think it will be much benefit on using SSR for that.

I'm excited to see what other software people here recommend πŸ˜€

In defense of the modern web

I expect I'll annoy everyone with this post: the anti-JavaScript crusaders, justly aghast at how much of the stuff we slather onto modern websites; the people arguing the web is a broken platform for interactive applications anyway and we should start over;

React users; the old guard with their artisanal JS and hand authored HTML; and Tom MacWright, someone I've admired from afar since I first became aware of his work on Mapbox many years ago. But I guess that's the price of having opinions.
