No, you will never ever be able to do everything you want with no code as you'll be bound by the capabilities of the program/tool you're using. With code you can customise things to whatever level of detail you like. Obviously no code requires no need for coding skills, so that is a big bonus and if it's a good tool then you can get away with it. But you'll typically always find you'll have to concede in places due to system limitations.
No, you really can't do everything with a no-code approach. You can often build an MVP with no-code, but in order to take it to the next step, you often need a fullstack developer.
There are of course exceptions to this.
no-code is one of dead by design ideas, i think. you can not do anything significant with that. it is like a building in minecraft. you can do model in there, but you can not build a real building project
@vladimir_chernetsov@between_team i am not well versed at all in no-code tech, I only ever coded. I do find the rise of no code interesting though, I’d be curious to see case studies or cost benefit analysis on the topic, or how much has no-code helped the startup/entrepreneurs landscape.
@youreka of course, the history of no-code goes deeply in 90s and earlier. not sure about west world, but in ex-usssr we has several no-code products. all of them are dead now. i see the same perspective for all no code. the same problem with co-pilot also. good for leetcode (because it already seen decision in multiple repos), but useless for a real world.
No-code is good when you need to quickly do something more or less beautiful, but without complex business logic. There are good tools that allow you to quickly create forms and save data. At first glance, the cost seems high, but the time savings in creating and testing a prototype compensates for everything.
If complex logic for data processing is required, then this is done rather not trivially at the moment in the tools that I use. You have to spend time looking for workarounds so as not to write external services for processing data. I would like the no-code tools to make it possible to add logic written in popular programming languages.
This will postpone the moment when you decide to switch from no-code tools to coding.
@youreka Correct. That's one of the many reasons why we built Chainstarters. You can build an MVP and grow with us as your product scales. One of our clients had 50,000+ downloads in three days and his app did not crash. 😀 Everyone should be able to experience this kind of growth without having to stop and re-build.
+ Easy to maintain
+ Design is not limited as much when a creative no-code developer (designer who codes) does the job
+ Easy to edit and scale
+ Great for products and high loads
@youreka In my experience, designers who have mastered webflow are happier with the end result, because
- cost of development is no longer limit their imagination (any showoffs add a lot to the estimate)
- designs come out just as envisioned - when designer codes they better understand nuances embedded in the design
- nothing is lost in translation as one person can do it all
