Visual software builder

Build apps without writing code

  • Drag-and-drop App Builder

    The visual App Builder lets you create a database and design a web interface (forms) around it without writing any code. The App Builder works in all modern web browsers.

  • Unlimited number of forms

    Design forms to collect, store and display any data. Forms can automatically save and load their data in your database.
    Connect an unlimited number of forms into a seamless workflow.

  • User permissions

    Specify who is allowed to access individual forms to represent different user roles in your app (e.g. employee, contractor, admin, guest, manager). This gives you fine-grained control over what each user can see and do in your app.

  • Visual scripting

    Automate tasks in your forms and create complex user interaction without writing any code.
    For example: use math formulas to compute values or conditionally show/hide elements in the form.

  • Data validation

    Create validation rules to ensure all data meets predefined requirements and show helpful messages to users when some some criteria isn't met.

  • Developer API

    Write JavaScript code to modify your forms for even more flexibility when visual scripting alone is not enough.

  • Managed hosting

    Alternatively host your apps on our managed cloud and combine the convenience of the cloud with the flexibility of custom-built software: Build your apps without writing code and host them instantly without managing any infrastructure.

  • Hassle-free updates

    Need to modify a hosted app? Simply make the changes in the App Builder and load the new file in the runtime. FormBeaver automatically handles database migrations so you can easily push updates and rollback changes to your apps.

Integrate apps with other software

  • Embed forms in any website

    Embed individual forms or an entire app in any web page using zero-config web components. No iframes or programming necessary.
