Overall Satisfaction with Budibase

Internal tools. Every organization needs internal tools to track KPIs or tansactions or just prepare dashboards. Budibase try to solve this problem. They have good number of external data sources available which you can plug in to bring your data and start building applications. You can even connect external REST API as a data source which means you can build almost any data from the web which support APIs. Budibase is a low/no code builder and hence it's relatively easy to build a working app.
  • Can connect REST APIs
  • Can define User Roles
  • Open Source so you can host it yourself if you prefer
  • They have a component called reapeater field which is extreamly useful in cases you want to iterate UI component on you table
  • 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.
  • made building internal tool easy
  • saved good number of man hours compared to building tools from scratch

Do you think Budibase delivers good value for the price?


Are you happy with Budibase's feature set?


Did Budibase live up to sales and marketing promises?

I wasn't involved with the selection/purchase process

Did implementation of Budibase go as expected?

I wasn't involved with the implementation phase

Would you buy Budibase again?


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.
