Look: There’s no platform that can enable someone with no freaking clue about how to build an app to magically build one... But boy does Bubble come close.
I love visual/no-code/alterna-code environments and have worked on several of the most famous ones. Bubble is right up there.
I feel like this tool‘s positioning (“you don’t have to be a coder”) belies its true strength. It‘s GRRRREAAAT for those who would rather NOT code most stuff.
I do my best to help folks out in the forums at forum.bubble.is, but wish it had a StackExhange equivalent -- it’s that deep. Love it and wish it the best. You can build awesome stuff on Bubble, but (duh) prepare to learn some computer science In the process (this is a GOOD thing)...
An app that's more about doing something technically than paying any attention to the user or use-cases. Is just very impractical, with all the real-world features difficult to impossible. Just look at data-upload: https://forum.bubble.is/t/best-way-to-bulk-upload/1690
- Highly recommend Webflow. You can design the app in the browser (HTML, CSS, JS) and migrate it to developers later. I did built a product for a client with this exact workflow and it only took 4 weeks to ship. It's incredibly fast and easy to use.
- This is a good tool if you have beginner skills with Nodejs, Angular, but you still want to build an app. It also has an export feature, where you get a project with well-structured code. So you'll start learning with code, instead of looking to empty notepad.
- I've heard good things about Good Barber too. Might be worth a look. "Since its creation, GoodBarber has reinvented itself time and time again: initially targeted to content publishers, we quickly positioned ourselves to develop a product which could meet new needs, allowing Communities and Local Businesses to join in the app creation process, with unparalleled user experience."
