One compliment (I think ;)) I get from people often is how fast I can develop very complex and, performance friendly data applications. I get many questions from clients about how I do it and how I can go from 0/nothing to a full React/Svelte app within a few weeks including full backend (machine learning included).
I usually answer with, I just use so many tools that I know how to intertwine them together to build quickly but I gave some more thought to this over the weekend and came to the conclusion it's not just how I intertwine the tools but it's actually the tools themselves that make it so quick and easy for me.
So what does this typically look like? I typically utilize Webflow for design and front end build (cause designers love it and it's easy), NoCodeDB for the database/front end data display, express.js backend via serverless cloud functions and, then an internal script that takes the frontend Webflow app and converts it into a Svelte app and then touches it up by adding/handling the states/props.
The final result is a blazing fast deliverable of any platform or website our clients need us to build without the performance drag (like building in Bubble.io would give you).
The crazy thing is, I can make the process even faster and thus have been working on doing just that by taking what we do and building a one-stop low-code building platform to combine all this functionality into one.
What's your process like? Curious to hear if anyone is doing something similar.
