No Code Admin Portal

I would really suggest using this to save time and build similar portals, it's made our life really easier.

Pros

We build a no-code admin portal for our users to enable/disable certain features and provide support for our customers. We are a startup and dynamically need to build something from the ground up. We already have Google firebase firestore as our database just for that reason and building an Admin/support portal for our client has helped us keep the application itself clean with minimum settings and improve our UX while cutting costs by a lot. We even configured custom events for notifications directly to our customers' mobiles where it was needed with very minimal code.

Cons

Not managing the queries properly become a hurdle for new people onboarded to find the right option or setting in shortest time, which partially was our fault for not making correct tabs.

Software di sviluppo low code / no code

Software imparato in pochissimo tempo se si hanno le basi dello sviluppo CSS / JAVASCRIPT e molto potente per risolvere le problematiche di base senza ricorrere a sviluppi custom

Pros

Rapidità di sviluppo delle applicazioni e dell'integrazione delle sorgenti dati all'interno dell'applicazione

Cons

Non esiste la possibilità di acquistare licenze di diverso tipo (alcune free, alcune Pro, alcune Startup) in modo da poter modulare meglio l'offerta per i clienti

ReTool - Very slow

I like ReTool's potential, but it just needs to be faster.

Pros

I think ReTool has a lot of potential to be good. I feel like it is pretty user friendly and I'm sure from the engineering side of the software it is good, but there is a lot lacking.

Cons

ReTool is incredibly slow. I have to open two windows at a time when using it because I end up wasting a lot of time just trying to navigate through one.
