What is Bubble and how it can help your startup?

In this blog, we'll explain what Bubble is, its advantages, and how it is helping startups and companies develop web and mobile apps by democratising access to technology for everyone.

What is Bubble?

Bubble is a programming tool and cloud platform that enables users to build their web applications visually without writing code. Bubble is designed to replace programming languages and frameworks traditionally used for web development, such as Ruby on Rails, Django, and PHP, as well as front-end technologies such as HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

This no-code tool is developed to build websites, apps, chatbots, marketplaces, and other applications without the need to write code. With its visual interface and pre-built modules, users can customise the look and feel of the applications using a drag-and-drop editor instead of coding each segment from scratch, which makes it quicker to build, test, and iterate than with traditional development.

At Decodifi, we use Bubble to build applications because it is simple to use, helps reduce time and cost when developing MVPs, and is one of the most powerful and stable no-code platforms on the market.

What are the advantages of using Bubble for startups?

1. Faster development: With Bubble, startups can build web and mobile applications in a fraction of the time it would take to develop using traditional coding methods. This allows startups to launch and test their ideas in a shorter timeframe.

2. Lower costs: Because Bubble reduces the time spent writing code, startups can save on development costs. Bubble can be 10x cheaper than traditional development. This reduced cost leads to better use of capital in the very early stages of startups and lower dilution for early investors and founders.

3. Speed of iteration: Bubble's drag-and-drop interface makes it easy to make changes to an application. This means founding teams can quickly iterate and make changes to their application as they receive feedback from users.

4. Integrations: Bubble offers integrations with a wide range of third-party tools, such as payment gateways, analytics tools, and email marketing services. This can help startups streamline their workflow and improve their overall business processes.

5. Extensibility: In comparison to other tools, Bubble is incredibly open-ended. Users can create their plugins using code that can be integrated into the application, or purchase plugins created by the Bubble community. With this flexibility, there are few limits to what can be built on Bubble.

How quickly can someone build an application on Bubble?

The speed to build an application on Bubble depends on the complexity of the application and the user's familiarity with the platform. However, Bubble's no-code platform can significantly reduce the time required to build an application compared to traditional coding methods. With Bubble's drag-and-drop interface and pre-built elements, users can quickly create basic applications. 

For more complex applications, users may require more time to design and customise their applications, but Bubble's built-in features and integrations with third-party APIs can simplify the development process.

Starting with less code and less money will help your startup grow faster, reach more customers, and take off sooner.

Bubble allows users to create an application without writing any code at all! Using this no-code tool users can build anything from a simple landing page to an entirely new social network in less time using its visual editor which allows editing different aspects of the application such as colours, content, data, workflows and plug-ins. In Bubble, you can work in clicks, rather than code, and write the logic of your application with a system that prompts you with suggestions.


If you're thinking about launching your startup or business idea, we hope this blog has given you some useful insights into how Bubble and no-code tools can help. It's not just for companies that are starting out, it's also a great tool for established businesses to experiment with new ideas quickly and cheaply without risking too much money or time.
