A. The Problem and The Pitch
Building web pages and apps from scratch can leave you limited by templates, expertise, & time to get it right. Whether you need to build an internal tool, resource directory or online community - there is no easy way to do this without an engineer. 🤷
What if you had a way to build apps and websites that...
would otherwise take days to build 📅
and could only be built by engineers 😎
...in a few hours by yourself?
That's no code.
It democratizes the creation of software.
Just what phone cameras did for video creation.
And, Softr is one of the best no-code apps out there.
Softr is the easiest and fastest way to build powerful web apps and portals from Airtable , in minutes (Airtable is Excel/Sheets on steroids). No code required. It is super simple - databases are pulled from Airtable & then Softr allows you to combine an effortlessly flexible (but template driven) take on web design.
With Softr, you can build:
🤝 Client & employee portals
⚙️ Internal tools
💜 Online communities
📒 Resource Directories
💻 Websites & landing pages
Here are a few apps and websites built with Softr:
💯 100 days of no code: An online community for no-code
🧰 Tool me up: Find your next startup tools in 3 clicks
🗃️ Adsets: Discover the best performing ads in your industry
🌟 PunkHunt: Discover next gen NFT punks (A project I built in 2.5 hours)
Softr is especially useful for side-projects that involve a list/collection.
