Budibase
Even though its a solid tool I think for now it is best suited to create some relatively complex apps but not best suited to build very complex apps where you need to manipulate data during runtime. But they are actively developing the produt and push updates on the regular basis which makes me feel optimistic about their future.

WaveMaker is a great platform for enterprise and SME's because it can save a lot on resources and time. The price is very low compared to the other competitors of WaveMaker and the best thing about WaveMaker is its no lock-in policy, you can always download the code and work on other IDEs. Overall an amazing platform.

Cons
Budibase
  • Building UI even though simple, it gets tougher when you want to build a complex one. The way they have implemented data sources in the UI is bit rigid.
  • you can not use JS in all the components to manipulate data which makes it less dynamic compared to say AppSmith.

  • I believe that for this case, is important the technical support, which solves you or give workarounds that work for your issues. It answers in 24 hours, in labour days.
