No-code development platforms (NCDPs) allow creating application software through graphical user interfaces and configuration instead of traditional computer programming based on writing code.

No-code development platforms are closely related to low-code development platforms as both are designed to expedite the application development process.[1] However, unlike low-code, no-code development platforms require no code writing at all, generally offering prebuilt templates that businesses can build apps with.[2] In the 2010s, these platforms have both increased in popularity as companies deal with a limited supply of competent software developers.[3]

No-code development platforms are closely related to visual programming languages.[4]


No-code tools are often designed with line of business users in mind as opposed to traditional IT.

The potential benefits of utilizing a NCDP include:

  • Agility - NCDPs typically provide some degree of templated user-interface and user experience functionality for common needs such as forms, workflows, and data display allowing creators to expedite parts of the app creation process.[5]
  • Richness - NCDPs which at one point were limited to more basic application functions increasingly provide a level of feature-richness and integrations that allows users to design, develop, and deploy apps that meet specific business needs.[6]
