Is Low-Code really something developers want or is it No-Code?

Hi!

We are a team of developers, that are considering building a Low-Code Platform designed for developers.

Our simple question is:
What do you, as a developer, need in such a platform?
What helps your processes?
What makes you more efficient without losing quality?

    I'm a Full Stack Developer and I use Django and DRF. There are a number of ways to do authentication in Django but I still had a surprisingly hard time setting up what I wanted. I had to create my own solution to allow a user to be logged in on multiple devices, which I now use as a template for other projects. It might be good to focus on one thing like authentication.

    My question is if the developer is your customer then why do they use No Code Platform ?

    They will use CMS or Some Framework Or Boilerplate Code Or Business Application platform ( BPA) for their projects.

    I want lo/no code with 0 lock-in (i.e. I can run my own instance of the backend in case the platform goes under.) No offense.

    I have no idea why this hasn't been done yet - represent objects (classes) visually, with their methods exposed as plug-in connector points.

    For example, a component that does hashing. One connector point takes a string value and returns a hash. Another connection compares two hashes and returns true (if equal) or false (if not equal).

    This way, I can visually connect functionality - pop-beading function calls together (a la SSIS), and set properties. I know what the app needs to do; I'm looking for a visual abstraction so I don't have to get into the syntax weeds to make it happen.

      Seems like you're describing a VPL (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visual_programming_language)? There's a bunch of these but I've seen them most commonly in the education space.

      I've never used it, but I think Dark Lang is sort of like that?
