Who uses Directual and why?
What can be built on the platform?
Web-page builder (see the documentation) is a platform module for creating app web-interface. As you might know, a lot of apps were created on React + Directual. This is great, but our long-term strategy is to make app building as easy as possible. Thus, interface-builder is essential part of Directual platform.
In April we released a public cloud version of the platform. There you could find an early alfa-version of web-page builder with simple (vanillaJS-based) page components. Today we are happy to announce the significant update—web page builder operates with sophisticated user-friendly interface components (React-based). The first component to be introduced is the interactive form. More to come soon!
The main feature of Directual web-page builder is that you can either use Directual portal as a template for you app or embed pages into your web app (for example, Webflow-based).
App backend can be described with a few basic scenario steps: edit object, create object, search, and conditional step. Thanks to that Directual scenarios are great for building almost any back-end logic.
In contrast with a backend, the variety of use cases in front-end development is immense. That motivated us to make our front-end part of the platform open source. We’ve called that project Directual Design. It stands on the following principles:
Using web-page builder turns out to be highly efficient for professional developers as well as business users. There is no any infrastructure messing up at all! If you want to create new component , you are welcome to contribute in Directual Design library! Feel free to reach us out by email email@example.com or on community forum. We are happy to help!
We are working hard to solve our users’ problems with Directual web-page components. Here is a preliminary short-list of coming interface pieces:
Directual Design is an open-source React-components library that allows developers to create web-components for the Directual Web-page builder. With Directual Design, developers can create high-quality React-components and use them in their projects.
Directual Design's open-source React-components library provides developers with high-quality components that they can use in their projects. It also enables them to engage with Directual Web-page builder, a platform module for creating app web-interface, making app building as easy as possible.
Users can expect a range of new interface pieces from Directual's web-page builder, including an interactive table, profile, cards view, chat, and list for rating, feature requesting and voting, among others.
Join 10,000+ no-coders using Directual and create something you can be proud of—both faster and cheaper than ever before. It’s easy to start thanks to the visual development UI, and just as easy to scale with powerful, enterprise-grade databases and backend.
