Main Features

Here are the key features that make Budibase stand out:

  • Build and ship real software: Unlike other platforms, Budibase lets you build and deploy single-page applications with performance optimized for user experience.

  • Design and build apps with powerful pre-made components: Budibase comes with a library of beautifully designed, reusable UI components that you can use to build your apps. This accelerates development time and reduces the need for custom coding.
  • Extensive documentation and community support: Budibase provides detailed documentation on how to get started, including interactive API documentation. The platform also has an active community on GitHub discussions where you can ask questions or share knowledge with other users.

Overall, Budibase offers a unique combination of flexibility, customization, and ease of use that makes it an attractive option for developers and organizations looking to build internal tools and applications quickly and efficiently.
