Can a streaming platform be built without code?

Today’s Daily Digest was crafted by us and sponsored by our friends at Webflow.

You can take years to build a product or do it in a weekend. A maker can be a child prodigy or someone who can’t write a line of code. Anyone can be a maker, and that’s true now more than ever.

Few movements have made good on their promise to democratize something better than the no-code movement has democratized entrepreneurship. Webflow has a hand in that with its visual canvas that lets anyone build a site, with down-to-the-pixel customizations, all without code. The startup has enjoyed a gratifying year — it closed a $140M Series B, announced oft-requested features like Logic and Memberships, and reached over 3M users.

Now it has launched a new streaming platform to tell the stories of those users.

“We're curating stories that will inspire, and also producing original series that share stories about the impact no-code is having in the world,” wrote maker Mischa Vaughn from Webflow’s content team.

Webflow TV will feature original productions as well as a highly curated collection of inspiring stories while partnering with content creators like The Futur and Charlie Marie. Its first original docuseries is called Generation No-Code and looks at how no-code development is closing the gap between idea and impact and empowering historically “would-be” entrepreneurs with the tools to pursue their dreams.

“Going through all these stock [image] sites, I just couldn’t find diverse illustrations. I just didn’t feel like I was being represented. Who’s going to do this or release this — why not me?” shares maker John Saunders in the trailer.

In true no-code fashion, the team created Webflow TV with five tools in just one month, inspired by a project from the company’s internal hackathon where the team asked “Can a streaming platform be built with Webflow?” You can read about the tools and their build on the blog.

We’re looking forward to watching the series and have started checking out content on the platform. It’s all free, so you can start watching now too.

Making databases easier

A database management tool that's fun to use?

Arctype just launched its supercharged SQL client for developers and teams. "We want to do what Figma did to improve on Photoshop and make Arctype much more accessible to developers through a clean design, collaboration, and a UI that's easy to learn," maker Justin de Guzman shared.

Archtype is part of the Hyper inaugural cohort of startups. Maker Everett Berry shared more about Arctype's journey to finding product-market fit today on our blog.
