Build internal tools visually

  • An interactive editor to create GUI apps in the style of Visual Basic 6
  • Each app has a built in full SQL database
  • Each app can be viewed as a self contained HTML file
  • Uses the Dannea app all documents can be run as a multiuser app
  • All documents can be edited in the cloud, no installation for end users
  • Apps work offline as well

: Key workflow :

  1. Open or download for Windows or OS X
  2. Create an app with drag and drop editor
  3. Download the app to your local machine as a HTML file
  4. Email the app to someone
  5. When they get the email then they can run the app
  6. If they want to edit the app they press "Edit" at the top of the running app
  7. Congratulations, someone has just forked your app! :)
