Overall Satisfaction with Skuid

We use skuid to provide an easy to design and deliver user interface on Salesforce. It has proven really useful when trying to display data to our internal users in a way that is most efficient without having to code.
  • The Pros is that it is really easy to get a hang of the page designer, you can make a page in minutes when it would take you hours if you had to program in Apex.
  • The pages are easy to deploy to a production environment in SalesForce.
  • The model creation is very intuitive, you can very effictively design SOQL query and pull in the result in your page.
  • The design/user experience is not the best, it is not very appealing to the eye. Even the different themes are very bland and not very vibrant.
  • Skuid reaches its limits pretty quickly when you are trying to make pages that are a bit more involved. You are having to mess with the CSS in some strange ways to make things work like you want them to at times.
  • It doesn't really do well in terms of responsive design, a design may look great on one screen and absolutely dreadful on another.
  • Skuid really has not had any negative impact it has been positive all the way around. We just have to be aware of the fact that it has limitations and they are quickly met if you are doing complex projects.
I have not tried any alternative software beside programing it by hand.
Skuid is less suited for pages where you are just looking to display data, in table format or simple charts or just as a data editor with multiple tabs. For anything more involved, skuid is not your tool.
