Bubble is a visual programming language, a no-code development platform and an application platform as a service, developed by Bubble Group, that enables non-technical people to build web applications without needing to type code. Instead, users draw the interface by dragging and dropping elements onto a page and defining workflows to control the logic.[1] Bubble's vision is to make hand-coding for web applications largely obsolete.[2]

Overview[edit]

Bubble's visual development platform is used to create websites and web applications with more advanced functionality than what is possible with template-oriented website builders such as Wix and Squarespace. It is used by non-technical startup founders, in schools for education purposes, and by other organizations for commercial purposes.[3][4][5]

Bubble allows users to build web applications including social media sites like Twitter, marketplaces like Airbnb and Uber, services like Instacart, and more through tutorials.[6] Bubble offers its own API integrations, templates and plugins. Users of the platform have also created new third-party templates, plugins and service built within the Bubble eco-system.[7]

History[edit]

Bubble[8] was founded by Emmanuel Straschnov and Josh Haas in 2012 in New York.[9][10] Bubble has been bootstrapped for seven years.[11] In 2019, Bubble raised $6M from SignalFire, Neo, Nas, Eric Ries and the founders of Warby Parker, Allbirds, Okta, Harry's.[12] Bubble was named one of Fast Company's Most Innovative Companies of 2021.[13]
