Validating a new startup idea is often more reliable when you have a working MVP on which the customers can interact with and give feedback based on their experience.
What’s wrong with the existing no-code platforms?
There are tons of no-code apps that help founders quickly bootstrap a new application in order to have a working prototype as soon as possible with minimal costs.
Those platforms are doing their job great until certain points when you might need to add some sensitive customizations, 3rd party integrations or even the possibility to have a multi-stage environment with some integration tests to reduce the chances to break something in the production environment.
Anyone with some experience in working with no-code platforms had this kind of problem at some point in time and there is no quick fix, unfortunately. As the outcome of those no-code platforms is a service that you can use as long as you pay the subscription, it’s not possible to extend and reuse your app on your own preferences and you are always limited by another company’s decisions.
What’s our solution?
Having this in mind, we have started working on Mockless to provide a service that has the advantages of a no-code platform and the outcome of a dedicated development team.
Mockless it’s a low-code development platform that helps customers build highly scalable backend infrastructures and APIs. The users can interact with Mockless using an intuitive no-code dashboard but in the background, Mockless uses thousands of tiny templates that are combined in order to generate the custom project.
As every file is composed of dozens of tiny templates, every action the user is making on the dashboard produces a Git commit with small changes exactly how a developer would deliver that functionality.
The projects created by Mockless are fully customizable, in case both the developer and the Mockless builder made changes on the same line of code, the developer will have to resolve the conflict using Git mergetool and can continue to use Mockless to create other functionalities even on the same files it made manual changes.
The projects are platform agnostic, can be hosted on Mockless cloud but there is also the possibility to be hosted on any cloud as Mockless generates automatically the docker files, Docker Compose or Serverless configs to facilitate that as easy as possible.
The customers own the source code of the app and are free to extend, customize or scale it based on their needs without being dependent on a 3rd party.
One last thing you should know
At the time we are writing this, we are in a beta phase with some great packages where the developers or startup founders can experiment with how the app can help them deliver their apps much faster without learning anything new.
Mockless delivers the same source code the developers are already used to and offers a solid foundation for building absolutely anything.
