I've used Airtable extensively to build simple internal apps as minimal viable products, but would love to build something bigger without coding. What are your favorite tools to build MVPs?
Coda/Retool + Integromat for Internal apps. Bubble/Thukable + Integromat for external apps. We recently wrote an article about this: https://blog.integromat.com/every-tool-you-need-to-build-without-code-9a63e54a58e5
It really depends on the MVP. We use the same stack for MVP as for post-MVP. We've used Meteor in the past, but now we build all new apps with Node.JS, Vue.JS, Vuetify, GraphQL, PostGres. We use Prisma as a GraphQL layer on the database. For landing pages we use static-site generators: VuePress for i18n, otherwise Gridsome, with Bulma or Tailwind. We deploy to Netlify.
It really depends on the kind of product you want to create. I'm a coder myself, but these days a lot of people are using and loving no-code tools like Bubble and Glide.
For simpler use cases, I've used Coda and it's getting better by the day…
Others have already mentioned some other great tools which may fit perfectly somewhere in the pipeline: Zapier, Airtable, Integromat (didn't know about this one, seems legit).
Check out Makerpad — it's a great place to learn how to use no-code tools like these. I think it's the best place for that, in fact.
If you're OK with (learning) a bit of coding, you'll (soon) be able to get a prototype / MVP up and running fairly quickly with Vue.js (using Vue CLI or Nuxt.js), Buefy + Bulma, and simple serverless functions, and then you can host it all on Netlify (free) or ZEIT Now.
May you create great things! 😉
Webflow for the landing page/website with a CMS ; Google Spreadsheet/Airtable to deal with my database ; Zapier/parabola/integromat to connect everything and make automatic change
