鉁 Features

Build and ship real software

Unlike other platforms, with Budibase you build and ship single page applications. Budibase applications have performance baked in and can be designed responsively, providing users with a great experience.

Open source and extensible

Budibase is open-source - licensed as GPL v3. This should fill you with confidence that Budibase will always be around. You can also code against Budibase or fork it and make changes as you please, providing a developer-friendly experience.

Load data or start from scratch

Budibase pulls data from multiple sources, including MongoDB, CouchDB, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Airtable, S3, DynamoDB, or a REST API. And unlike other platforms, with Budibase you can start from scratch and create business apps with no data sources. Request new datasources.

How the repository is organized

Budibase is a monorepo managed by lerna. Lerna manages the building and publishing of the budibase packages. At a high level, here are the packages that make up Budibase.

  • packages/builder - contains code for the budibase builder client-side svelte application.

  • packages/client - A module that runs in the browser responsible for reading JSON definition and creating living, breathing web apps from it.

  • packages/server - The budibase server. This Koa app is responsible for serving the JS for the builder and budibase apps, as well as providing the API for interaction with the database and file system.

馃摑 License

Budibase is open-source, licensed as GPL v3. The client and component libraries are licensed as MPL - so the apps you build can be licensed however you like.
