No-code platforms are revolutionizing the way businesses create and manage their websites. These platforms allow users to create and manage their websites without writing a single line of code. This can be a huge advantage for businesses that don’t have the time or resources to code. This blog post will discuss what no-code platforms are, how they work, and some of the benefits they offer businesses.

Let’s get started.

What is No code?

No code refers to software development platforms that enable you to create apps without writing any actual code. Instead, no-code/ low-code tools allow you to build apps by connecting modules, filling in forms, and configuring the app’s settings. Essentially, no code is a layer of abstraction on common programming languages such as Java or Swift for iOS, HTML, Javascript, and other SDKs ( software development kits ). 

No code doesn’t mean any coding at all because no matter what no-code platform you’re using, there will be some set of commands that need to be written for your project to work correctly.

What is a No-code development platform?

No code development platforms are designed to help novices get into application creation without writing any code. They also take care of non-developer IT/technical tasks so novices can do more independently. Besides that, a no-code database platform enables novices to build databases, access data, and get involved in other aspects of building apps or websites without writing any code.

Is Low code different from No-code?

The no-code platform is simply no-code. If no code means no coding, it is different from low code. Low-code platforms are the latest addition to the no-code solutions, allowing users to perform basic app-building activities without coding. The definition of low-code used by the IT industry is “a software development platform that allows non-programmers (no developers) or casual programmers to create apps.”

Features of no-code platforms

  • Drag-and-drop interface

No-code platforms provide a drag and drop interface to build no-code apps. This eases the no-code app development process by letting users click and drag items into place, giving no-coding novices the functionalities of coding professionals.

  • Data connections

No-code platforms have no coding requirements, but according to experts, no-code platforms are no “silver bullet” for data integration. There is always some complexity in interconnecting no-code services with legacy apps and other no-code services. Low-code databases also offer various advantages to the users.

  • User interface builder and visual modeling

No-code platforms can help users build no-coding user interfaces for no-code apps. No-code platforms provide powerful no-coding data modeling capabilities that work in unison with no-code UI tools. Of course, no-code platform visual modeling is no substitute for the power of SQL.

The Bottom Line

No-code and low-code are similar software platforms that help users build software applications without writing any code. Users can drag and drop components onto their screen, select from a menu of readymade application functions, or click through an interactive flowchart to set up the data models and business structures behind these applications. 

They allow non-technical users to take the visual design elements they see in other apps and custom tailor them for their purposes.
