It’s ZK’s Ten-Year Anniversary!


In honor of our ten-year anniversary,
we have introduced our eighth version of ZK. In this latest release, ZK has taken a giant leap closer to the concept of “zero coding.” Never has front-end and back-end integration been so simple and efficient. In addition, with our clear view and logic separation, we provide our users with the opportunity to effortlessly depict the same data structure in countless guises, both fancy and professional. In essence, ZK is now even more powerful than before and the possibilities… endless.

And it is YOU who have made everything possible. Looking back, we have received recognition as the #1 most active project on and were the winner of Red Herring 100 Asia. Moreover, it is also your invaluable feedback that has inspired us to constantly explore our potential and achieve phenomenal results: we are the first server+client fusion solution; the first framework that has brought MVVM to Java; the first responsive framework that allows one code base for PC, Tablet and Mobile; and the first online Ajax spreadsheet.

We truly appreciate your active efforts in both contributing articles and sharing your love for ZK through a variety of creative means and languages. Your undying enthusiasm has allowed ZK to be translated and spoken about in Swedish, Italian, French, Dutch and many others, establishing us as a true global community. Overall, we have reached tens of millions across 200+ countries and have been adopted by over 100 Fortune 500 companies.

We will keep moving forward. Your suggestions and constructive criticisms are our primary driving force. We would like to express our respect and gratitude to you; after all, your unceasing support and words of encouragement are what continue to strengthen our expanding community. Alone, we could not have attained the same success.

Thus, from all of us at ZK, here is a big THANK YOU!

We would also like to give special thanks to:

appeleon・ Chanwit・ chillworld・ CJahn・ cyiannoulis・ Darksu・ davout・ Easit・ Edwin Yu・ Enrico・ Francisco Ferri ・ gekkio・ Gyowanny・ IngoB・ Jumin Rubin・ Luis Rodríguez Fernández ・ Marcos de Sousa・ madruga0315・ mjablonski・ Neus・ robertpic71・ Senthil M・ Simon Massey・ sjoshi・ smigol・ Softeco Sismat・ Sotohiro・ Tegsoft・ terrytornado・ twiegand・ the clark brothers・ the Italian User Group・ xmedeko・ YamilBracho, as well as countless others not mentioned here.

What ZK fundamentally wishes to achieve is to return to the very basics of coding and create miracles out of these roots. Despite the number of impressive JavaScript libraries that are emerging, we are convinced that eventually coders from all backgrounds will feel nostalgic for their “native” language, which in our case is Java. Therefore, the spirit of ZK is to prove that “home” will always be where the heart is, meaning our faith in Java is what essentially empowers the ZK in us to unwaveringly plant new ideas and cultivate innovation.

Let’s all continue to harvest JavaScript from our Java roots for many more seasons to come!
