Glide, a powerful but easy to use no-code application creator


Glide is a new tool that allows you to create applications without learning to code. This can be very useful if you have an idea for an application, but don’t have time to learn how to make it happen.

Glide provides a powerful and user-friendly way to create and manipulate databases without having to write code. While you can obviously take the data you store in Glide and do whatever you want with it, Glide focuses on providing a visual interface for interacting with your data, especially if you have no coding experience.

Glide is based on Google Sheets which means that it gives you all the power of Google Sheets and allows you to visually interact with your database through the Glide interface.

Glide is here to help you. You may think that a database is something only engineers can use. But it’s not as hard to use as most people think. It’s just another place to store your information, like a spreadsheet, but instead of using a visual interface like rows and columns, you access it through the command line. Of course, for many applications, you need more than a spreadsheet can provide.

Glide is not limited to displaying and interacting with your data. It also offers components that allow you to display your data in different ways: maps, calendars, user lists, etc. These components can add a lot of functionality without having to code yourself.
