I definitely suggest trying Webflow, great product, easy integration. Learning the design take some time but it worths.

When I first got into the NoCode game two years ago, I was all about Zapier. It's great, it opens up possibilities, but..

Integromat is the solution you're looking for if you want a true scalable product.

My advice: instead of trying to go nocode, go for LowCode. You'll need to learn CSS/HTML to get dangerous, but it unlocks so much more

+1 for Integromat they've built an absolutely amazing integration ecosystem, with more or less endless possibilities.

Data → Logic → Interface

Data

  1. Airtable. You can build a relational database here and you can integrate this with the tool you pick for your front-end. Deep dive on Airtable and leverage the apps, scripts, and automations that are built-in.
  2. Google Sheets. If you're considering Glide for front-end, build your database on Google Sheets.

Logic

  1. Zapier. Basically IFTTT for SaaS. There are alternatives such as:
  2. Integromat. Some will say its buggy. Some swear by it.
  3. n8n. Open source alternative.
  4. Parabola. Not necessarily an alternative, as it primarily focuses on moving data to and from platforms. Forget about manual copy pasting and preparing CSV exports ;).

Interface

  1. Webflow. The go-to no-code website builder. Plays nice with most tools. BONUS: If you go for Webflow, consider Ousteta or Cotter for user auth.
  2. Glide. Straightforward app building. You will not have full design control, you will choose from building blocks and may customize them. The team behind Glide is shipping every week.
  3. Adalo. The easiest way to put this is: Glide meets Webflow. You will have more design control on components and the overall look and feel of your app.

Curious: What features do you need in your website and app? That'd likely change what would be best for your site in particular.

In other similar discussions on Capiche, Zapier, Webflow, and Integromat were all recommended for no-code development. Another similar discussion on best tools to build an MVP saw a few interesting combos:

  • Sketch + Invision, IFTTT, Google Sheets, and Glide to design and put an idea into action
  • Webflow + Zapier to build a website with more advanced, automated features
  • Coda, Integromat, and Bubble—the former two for internal apps, the latter two for external apps
  • Webflow, Zapier, Airtable, and Memberstack for a membership site
  • And much more.

Thanks @magguy
1. Website for users(freelancers and clients - exactly Webflow as they allow freelancers to build websites ) to sign up.
2. Database to store all the information and getting updated as users edit the info or details on their individual accounts.
3. Editor on the website to edit free templates for my users to attract new clients., basically.
4. This all should be in No-code.

@magguy Also, integration with a platform to provide paid tutorials where people can choose the course they want to learn, and pay for the services.

@amit143addy I think it still comes down to what you're looking to achieve. There are definitely lots of tools (i.e. those mentioned already), options and approaches one can take. Depending on what your use cases are, you may want to look at tools like Adalo, Softr, Bravostudio, etc. and if you're thinking of gating content/products, memberships, etc, I think there are better tools geared towards that. If your use case is related to the delivery of training or consultative services, I think there are totally different options for that.

You should try DronaHQ. It's easy to use, offers a marketplace of ready-to-use apps, cloud-based storage/database and easy and quick integrations. It also offers automations, workflows (for backend) and action flows (for frontend) for customized business logic, and rules. Bonus - it's for both web and mobile-based apps.
