Somewhere between a rapid prototyping environment for an MVP and an amazing “no-code” app platform. Great for avoid-code folks!
There’s no magic bullet for non-coder/developer types. But if u love visual programming as I do, it’s wonderful. Gateway drug to coding.
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)...Keith Crosley has used this product for one year.
It probably can be used successfully
Everything is very difficult, with data upload impossible
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/1690Josh Jacobson has used this product for one year.
