Bubble 2.0

Build and host web applications without having to write code

#3 Product of the DayJuly 18, 2018

You don't need to be a coder to build software. Bubble is a visual programming tool that makes programming as easy as pointing and clicking. Instead of teaching code, we reinvent how we build software via a visual interface.

Users have used Bubble to get into YC or raise multi-million dollar rounds. Today, Bubble counts more than 175,000 users

Hello everyone, it's great to be back on Product Hunt after all these years. Thanks @bentossell for the hunt!! We officially launched on PH in October 2015, and we're excited to be here again with new branding and a ton of new functionality. Here we are! While Bubble's vision, empowering everyone to build software, hasn't changed, it feels like we have totally different product. The platform is now mature and stable in production. A few of our users have been part of YC, and some others have raised millions. Some of the biggest additions have been: 1) Letting our users create, sell, and share plugins to add new abilities to Bubble. When we started Bubble, it was about us writing code so that others wouldn't have to. Now, everyone can join our mission of creating the world's greatest platform for code-free programming. Bubble plugins can be built either with code or without code, letting everyone participate in the visual programming revolution. 2) One-click API creation for any Bubble app. APIs make the internet a more open place. We're happy that Bubble users can now build and deploy powerful APIs as easily as they can build web pages. 3) Rapid app creation via templates. Users can now share and sell designs with each other to help kick start the creative process and launch gorgeous apps in minutes. 4) Dedicated hosting options for Bubble apps, helping our fastest growing customers scale on custom, global infrastructure.

@bentossell @howardkeziah Best is to email support@bubble.is or bubble.is/contact and we'll share more details about dedicated plans.

In 2013, I started using Bubble to build an online marketplace for my startup. I had no coding experience and no budget, and was able to build an app with user signups, crowdfunding functionality, and payment processing. Bubble was rough around the edges, but it had the signatures of a disruptive technology. Over the past 5 years, the platform has evolved in dramatic fashion, adding hundreds of features, a marketplace for plugins, support for responsive design, the ability to connect to virtually any API, and immense performance & scalability improvements. In 2015 I co-founded AirDev, the first Bubble development agency, to help organizations build great applications using this powerful technology. We have built hundreds of products for startups & enterprises without having coders on our team. Many of our clients imagine they will use Bubble for a simple prototype, and then get hooked on the speed and flexibility with which we can develop. The Bubble team is committed to the long-run, aiming to replace traditional code as the medium for helping anyone create & express on the web. I'm excited to see where this wild ride takes us!

Pros:

Full flexibility (design, database, workflows), Scalable software (not just for prototypes), Connect to anything (APIs & plugins)

Cons:

Easy to learn but hard to master, No coding needed but complex apps still require significant logic & design

I have first encountered Bubble almost 3 years ago when they just launched on Product Hunt. And Bubble has literally changed my life. Not only mine but of hundreds of thousands of people that all of a sudden got empowered to build products that they would never build otherwise. Bubble reduces the time and costs of creating web and mobile apps dramatically, revolutionizing the whole space of web development. It also enables totally non technical people to build beautiful and powerful apps without requiring developers. Yes, I can be called biased since together with my co-founder Vlad Larin we have founded a business building products on Bubble (https://zeroqode.com), but if this business strives and provides jobs to 25+ team members then it only proves the fact that Bubble is indeed a great platform.

Pros:

- fast and easy way to create web & mobile applications

- even non-technical people can build powerful and beautiful apps

Cons:

requires some efforts to learn but it's still waaaay faster and easier than learning to code

Over the past few years Bubble has evolved from a hobbyist/tinkerer tool to an enterprise-ready product that replaces coding. We have clients who've raised $100M+ and use Bubble for majority of their tech stack. There are still missing pieces (like support for fully-native apps) but this is just the beginning of a movement that's going to do the same thing to software development costs as AWS did to server costs.
