Glssry is an open-source glossary, dictionary, and encyclopedia of acronyms, initialisms, terms and definitions.

I made it after building a more basic, workplace-focused version to help cut through the jargon and confusion at my current workplace.

This version aims to collect as much useful information as it can across a wide range of subjects.

Tech-wise it uses:

  • tRPC
  • Tailwind (I've grown to like it)
  • TypeScript (duh)
  • Next
  • Auth.js
  • Vercel
  • Prisma
  • PlanetScale

It's bootstrapped with the very useful T3 app, more info here.

The app is open to all contributors, both in terms of being able to contribute data to the database, as well as contributing to the codebase.
