Linx vs. Other low-code platforms
What is low-code
Low-code means many things to many people. Various tool types exist under this umbrella term: website generators, form builders, API connectors, database builders, workflow automation, and more, each targeting different domains and requiring varying levels of technical proficiency. The only common theme is that they have a graphical user interface that enables a user to build and/or configure something.
What is Linx
Linx is a general-purpose low-code platform for building backends like APIs, automations and integrations. It is an abstraction of programming itself and not domain, process or tooling specific. This means it can be used for any backend application in any domain with no limitations on connections to other tools and services.
What makes Linx different
The use of a programming abstraction makes Linx extremely powerful. It is not constrained by a domain or use-case driven paradigm and is often used in conjunction with other low-code tools to provide the API or integration services that those tools are not designed for.
How does it compare with other low-code tools
Low-code tools that can be used to build APIs, automations and integrations fall into several broad categories.
How does Linx complement other low-code tools
Most low-code tools make working in a specific domain very easy but have difficulties working with systems and concepts that do not form part of the main use-case the tool was designed for. Linx can fill the gaps when domain-specific low-code tools hit their limits.
