Rapid Application Development with Low-Code development platforms is becoming increasingly popular. If you search for the term “Low-code development platform” on Google Trends, you see that since 2015 the interest in low-code increased massively. So, what tools are available for you to start with Rapid Application Development?
Rapid Application Development Tools
A good rapid application development tool must allow the user to create an application with ease. There are no-code and low-code platforms to choose from. The first option, a no-code platform, enables you to create a basic app. However, when creating an application for a business, you normally need to automate processes. So, that’s where the second option, a low-code platform, is a better option. In a low-code platform code can be added to certain areas in order to create the perfect app for your needs.
There are several enterprise-ready no-code and low-code platforms available:
They all come with an long list of features, but what stands out is that Crust is the only open-source and free option. The others are proprietary solutions that can become really expensive, depending on how many features or users you need.
What Tools Does Crust provide?
Crust provides several features to help you build your own applications.
The first tool is the Crust Low-Code Platform. With this platform you can build your own applications. When you build a new app, you first define in modules what data you want to store. After that, you create pages using a simple drag-and-drop editor. Additionally, you can create rich charts and add them to any page.
The second tool is the Corteza Corredor automation engine. With this automation engine you can automate practically anything in your application. Need to inform the sales team via email when a new lead has entered the system? You can do that. Need to automatically create a quote when a button is clicked? No problem. The sky is the limit.
The last tool is Crust Unify. This is a unified space where you can access the apps built with the Low-Code platform, together with other apps you may use.
