Programming This forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Low Code/No Code Programming


Has anyone tried using low code/no code software for programming? Some say it's the future of programming. Everything I've seen seems to be for the enterprise; can it be used on a smaller scale? THX

People are entitled to their opinions and can say whatever they want.

I agree it seems to be for enterprise as well as web and mobile apps.

I do not see how it would be appropriate for small scale.

To me it is yet one more gimmick which touts, "the code writes itself!", where I continue to be un-amazed. But that's me and my code space, for those where it applies, it may be very useful tools.

I don't know perhaps MIT Scratch would be an example?

Many programming tasks are "quite routine." For instance, if you are simply cranking out another website or another mobile app, it may well be that you don't need to write any source-code. You use a more-convenient visual framework and whatever source-code is needed simply comes out the back end. This is a huge time-saver, but of course it only goes so far.

There will still sometimes be a "level of detail" that can only be expressed in source. But the very good news is that this might only be a very small part of the total project. "Lazy b&stard that I am," I am completely in favor of forcing the digital computer to do as much of the work as possible, so I don't have to. There's a lot of drudgery in this biz, and "that's what computers are for."
