What Is Draftbit?

If you’re building real software, you’ll eventually need to work in code. When you start with other no-code platforms, that means quitting and starting over – but with Draftbit, you just keep going.

That’s because, when you build on Draftbit, you’re creating production-ready source code at every step. And that code is based on open-source frameworks and libraries, so you’re never trapped.

A great product that changes the WYSIWYG Landscape for React and Mobile App Production

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: I love working with Draftbit. I have found the team to be so professional and friendly. It has a community that I am proud to be a part of and I wish to help see it grow.

Pros:

Draftbit is a great way to get into PWAs and Mobile apps no matter your skill level. I have found that it is intuitive enough to allow for extensive customisation without much coding skills required. I also found that if you need to go into code and add in your own, Draftbit has supplied a really good way to do this. It presents itself as an easy to use tool to prototype and even create production ready apps, yet it has so many complexities woven into it, that it can many very large use cases.

Cons:

I feel like a custom plugin / extension marketplace should be implemented. I would for one love to be able to reuse custom components I have made with custom code in other projects but they do not always import across well.

Great for Entrepreneurs

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: I'm currently building an app with Draftbit to push the features. So far, it's been good. I've been able to do everything I need to because Draftbit allows me to use custom code if they don't have what I need prebuilt.

Pros:

Connecting to external API's are easy in Draftbit. The component library is good and it's growing. If you're familiar with CSS Flex Box then you'll be right at home laying out components. I also like that I can write custom code and components if what I'm needing isn't already created by Draftbit.

Cons:

I think the component library needs to improve, that is, add more components. When building for iOS you have to create custom back buttons to add interactivity, that should be a standard feature. State management takes some getting use to if you come from a React Native background and using state management solutions like Redux.

Scam, just steal your idea and money. Who owns the company, where are the leadership's contact info.

1.0 7 months ago

Comments: It is sad that they use this technology's and scam people. Its entertaining to see another scam on the internet.

Pros:

This is just another FTX , they take your money and no customer service. Impossible to get the ownership information to file criminal charges. If they were a responsible company they would supply there ownership information and contact information so that you can make them responsible in court for their fraudulent business practices.

Cons:

They pretend they are a real solution, but in fact its a numbers games, they get more money coming in with no customer service. Hostgator and AWS have customer service, draftbit does not.

Great product to build apps your way.

5.0 2 months ago

Pros:

Unlike other no code builders, Draftbit gives you control and creative freedom. You are not stuck in templates or limited functionality that forces you to do things a certain way. Yes, there is a learning curve, but being able to do exactly what you want is worth it!

Cons:

Some under the hood specifics (like sync/async in the function stack) are not well explained in the docs and have to be discovered in debugging.

Full App Development w/o the Headache

4.0 2 years ago

Comments: Super positive overall. It lowers the barrier to entry and all of the headaches that usually come with app dev. Draftbit has a great community forum and their customer-facing team members are super helpful and receptive to ideas of how the product and support tools can be improved.

Pros:

Having the source code was the main reason I went with Draftbit. I've used a handful of other low-code/no-code tools in the past, and source code was the main decision maker that made Draftbit the clear choice. I also liked that I could make multiple apps under a subscription with them.

Cons:

I wish I could export an app or screen I've built as a template that I can use in other apps.
