What's the quickest way to build a low-code web app (SPA)?

1 reply
Hi everyone! I'm going to start on a side-project this week, and hoping to go the low-code way. For a full-fledged app I generally use ASP.NET Core or Node.js (with a web server and proper database), but for this project I'm trying to find the quickest way to build a low-code single-page web app. I'm thinking of creating a simple website using Carrd, building the business logic as cloud functions (FaaS) on Azure or GCP, but I'm not sure how to go about handling data storage (mainly user accounts) and glue code (to call the cloud functions etc.). Maybe Cloudflare Workers (Sites and KV) will fit the job. I'll appreciate any suggestions or tips! The main idea is to build something and iterate quickly.

I've been running a few small projects on AWS lambda w/ S3 and cloudfront for static hosting and have found it to be super low maintenance. Using the serverless framework + pre-build CloudFormation templates saves a TON of setup time. For storage, Dynamo db is great if you want something quick and just need K/V store, but I've also found RDS to be only marginally more effort if you want a proper schema.
