Redesign and Plans for the Future

Drew Thomas @truedrew

Since I've been getting lots of organic traffic and positive feedback on the No Code List, I decided it warrants its own domain name and a standalone site (with more supporting content).

To start, I moved it to, and I added a bold design layer to everything.

I have lots of plans for monetization, but for right now, I just want to keep building out the list and growing my traffic.

The next step is a comments page for each piece of software with maker-generated comments. Commenters must choose either "I've used this tool on a project" or "I've tried this tool" to give context and credibility to each comment.

If that works well, I have more ideas to keep building that part out, and if not, I have other ideas for ad slots, company profile enhancement upsells, and more. I'm doing my best to vet everything before building, so I don't ruin a good thing!

The main goal for the list is to help people vet software before starting a project. I don't want this to become a "new software of the day" listing site, and I don't want it to become a low-value software reviews list either. I want to purposely craft an experience where those new to no-code can find the information and resources they need, and no-code veterans can identify new tools to help their existing projects!
