Best Low-Code Development Platforms Software

Low-code development platforms provide development environments that allow businesses to develop software quickly with minimal coding, minimizing the need for extensive coding experience. The platforms provide base-level code, scripts, and integrations so companies can prototype, build, or scale applications without developing complex infrastructures. Both developers and non-developers can use these tools to practice rapid application development with customized workflows and functionality. Some products are geared more towards developers and require coding for functionality while others provide element libraries for design. Many products can interpret information from databases or spreadsheets and quickly create applications to access and manage information. These products differ from no-code development platforms because they allow for a greater level of functionality with customized code rather than a drag-and-drop interface. They also provide less functionality than a full integrated development environment because they do not provide tools to create complete applications from scratch.

To qualify for inclusion in the Low-Code Development Platforms category, a product must:

  • Generate source code as a base for customization
  • Allow developers to customize html markup and source code
  • Integrate with databases, web services, or APIs to connect data
