Magic Cloud

Magic Cloud, or Magic for short, is a backend software development platform that creates most of your code “automagically”, by leveraging meta programming, declarative programming, AI, low-code, and no-code software development automation. This allows you to focus on creative tasks, while having the machine create the boring parts. Magic comes in two flavors.

  • Single Server Enterprise License at $5,000 per month
  • Kubernetes Cluster Enterprise License at $20,000 per month

Notice - The open source community edition is no longer actively maintained, and should be considered legacy.

If you’re interested in purchasing a professional license you can contact us here. If you’re only looking for a hosted cloudlet allowing you to use all plugins, create workflows, and AI chatbots - You can purchase a cloudlet from AINIRO.IO here.


With Magic you can sometimes accomplish in some few minutes what requires weeks of coding with a more traditional platform. The following YouTube video illustrates how to create a workflow, and wrap it into an API. It’s a fairly complex workflow too, handling Stripe payments - Something even experienced software developers often struggle with. In the video I wire up Stripe payments in some few minutes using declarative programming and workflows.

The Magic Dashboard

Magic’s purpose is to help you with backend code, but it comes with a dashboard allowing you to manage your backend. The dashboard contains UI components for most things you’ll need when creating and maintaining your backend code.

Hyper IDE

Magic contains its own IDE or integrated development environment. Hyper IDE provides syntax highlighting and autocomplete for Hyperlambda. With Hyper IDE you can edit your code, save it, and immediately see the result of your modifications, by executing your endpoint without ever having to leave your IDE.

Hyper IDE also integrates with our Machine Learning component, built on top of OpenAI, allowing you to write your requests in plain English, and have Hyper IDE and OpenAI automatically generate code for you solving your problem.

However, the most powerful parts of Hyper IDE is its workflows feature, allowing you to dynamically orchestrate backend Hyperlambda code together, without needing to know Hyperlambda.

With Hyper IDE manually writing code is optional

The Endpoint Generator

The Endpoint Generator allows you to wrap any database you have in CRUD API endpoints. It reads meta data from your database, and automatically generates a web API for you. The generated API is secured according to your instructions, and can be modified after it’s created.

The Endpoint Generator takes care of left joins, referential integrity, validators, authentication, and authorisation - While allowing you to declaratively tell it how to generate your API. It also allows you to publish web socket messages as endpoints are invoked, in addition to having lots of additional features simplifying your life as a software developer.

By combining the Endpoint Generator with Hyperlambda Workflows, you can sometimes create your entire backend code exclusively by “clicking buttons”.

The SQL Endpoint Generator

Magic allows you to create HTTP endpoints using SQL. This allows you to compose some SQL statement, and rapidly wrap it inside an HTTP endpoint. You can find this component in the Endpoint Generator, in its “SQL Endpoint Generator” tab. Choose your database, provide some SQL, add arguments that you reference in your SQL, and click the “Generate” button.

The SQL endpoint generator allows you to secure your endpoints, declare what arguments your endpoints can handle, use all 5 most common HTTP verbs for your endpoints, etc. You can use it with SQL Server, MySQL, MariaDB, PostgreSQL, or SQLite - However, you need to write SQL that is valid for your particular database type as you create your endpoints.

SQL Studio

SQL Studio allows you to visually design your database using a graphical user interface. SQL Studio supports the following databases.

  • Microsoft SQL Server
  • PostgreSQL
  • MySQL
  • MariaDB
  • SQLite

SQL Studio also allows you to execute any SQL towards your database of choice, allowing you to administer your databases from anywhere. By combining SQL Studio with the Backend Generator, and especially the SQL API generator, you can compose some SQL, and rapidly wrap it into an API endpoint.

Machine Learning and AI

Magic Cloud is scattered with AI and allows you to create your own Machine Learning models using OpenAI, by scraping any website, and generate training data (RAG data) that you can use to answer questions related to your domain. Use cases might be.

  • Expert legal system, answering legal questions for clients
  • Medical expert advice system based upon AI and machine learning, giving you help when diagnosing patients and clients
  • Support chatbot for your enterprise, giving your clients support for whatever questions they might have related to your company
  • Automated sales expert systems, converting leads on your website into paying clients
  • Cognitive assistants, helping your employees with some specific task at hand
  • Etc, etc, etc

You can try out such a chatbot in the bottom/right corner of this page.

User management

Magic Cloud allows you to create and administer users, by giving you a graphical user interface, allowing you to manage your application’s users and roles, using a role based access control (RBAC) component. Provide access to modules and components according to what roles your users belongs to, and make sure only authorised users have access to private and secured data.

The user and role systemin Magic is based upon RBAC implying Role Based Access Control, allowing you to provide access to components and modules based upon roles, for then to associate roles with users.

The task manager

Magic Cloud allows you to create and administer tasks. A task is a background job, that is persisted into your database as Hyperlambda, and it can either be executed by a “trigger” occurring somewhere else in your system, or periodically scheduled to execute repeatedly, or at some specific date and time in the future. The task manager allows you to easily manage your tasks, edit them, and create new tasks as you see fit.


Magic Cloud also contains its own “App Store”, allowing you to rapidly install some plugin solving some particular need you might have in your own applications. Some example plugins are listed below;

  • Stripe payment integrations
  • Registration workflow actions
  • Shopify AI chatbot integration
  • WordPress AI chatbot integration
  • Several example SQLite databases
  • Etc, etc, etc

The integrated log

Magic Cloud also comes with an integrated log component, allowing you to browse your server log, giving you control over events occurring that might somehow have consequences for your system.

When you create your own Hyperlambda applications, you can also create log entries as you see fit, to log important events, such as deleting records, executing tasks, registering users, etc.

Custom AI chatbots

You can also use Magic to create your own custom AI chatbot, for then to embed it into your website. The Chatbot Wizard component in Magic will ask you for your OpenAI API key, for then to scrape your website generating a RAG database in the process. The end result allows your users to ask questions related to your website, and have the chatbot answer how you want it to answer questions.

It works by scraping your website, generating training data in the process, for then to end up with a custom “machine learning model” (based upon RAG), that answers questions according to your training data. You can try out such a chatbot by clicking the button in the bottom / right corner of this page, and ask it any question about Magic Cloud. This chatbot was created by scraping this website. At AINIRO we also delivers such chatbots as one of our services. Read more about our AI chatbots here.

Magic Cloud is NOT Open Source

Magic Cloud started as open source. However, the project had 10 million downloads of its NuGet packages, zero contributions, and zero donations, so we could no longer justify maintaining it as an open source project. We do provide the source code with a server license and Kubernetes license, which has a cost of respectively $5,000 per month and $20,000 per month. If interested, you can contact Thomas.

The goal of the project

The goal of the project is to make it easier to produce high quality and scalable code, much faster, without security holes, in an extremely scalable runtime. AKA …
