Hi, for some time I have been reading in this forum about “why doesn’t Wappler have graphics and animation tools like Webflow, bootstrap studio, pinegrow, etc”, "Wappler’s design tools are primitive, we would like them to be like those of Webflow "and so many other comments.
So I come to ask you the following question: how many design tools are there on the market that allow you to do all this repeatedly and on the other hand, how many tools allow you to program complete professional applications using the latest technology such as: Node.js, Docker, Reactive Framework for the FrontEnd, as powerful or more than React.js, a server-side framework (AppServer connect) so powerful that we can do almost anything with it, components that we can include and customize such as Flow, Fullcalendar, Sliders, Swiper, Action Scheduler, notifications, alerts, Toasts, etc.?
This is just my opinion and it does not go against anyone, but sometimes I feel that many want Wappler to end up being a product in a nice box like the rest and they do not realize that all those things that Webflow has many other platforms have, and everything important that Wappler has that allows us to develop applications and functionalities at a professional level, are nowhere else in the visual way as we find it in Wappler, which allows us to develop applications quickly and at the same time teaches us to work as true developers and not like children doing anything without understanding how it works. Wappler is in some way educational, those who do not know, learn to work for example in an MVC model (Model, View, Controller) and that I have not seen anywhere else.
Finally, Wappler makes us owners of the code we generate, which means that it does not tie us to its platform as developers.
So I really ask you: do we want Wappler to have more beautiful menus with fanzy animations like the hundreds of applications that already exist and that many are compatible with Wappler because they use bootstrap or do we want Wappler to be a serious software development tool as it has been? ?
Do we want the Wappler team to work on functionalities that really make the difference with any other platform or to spend that time making the menus more didactic, beautiful and with better animations?
For me the answer is clear. For you?
