Choosing a No-Code Platform: Which Solutions We Use for Various Tasks

Hi all! An international digital agency AZ Agency speaking, and today we want to talk a bit more about the no-code platforms that we use in website development, and in which cases we choose one or another platform.

No-code platforms are tools that allow users to create apps, websites, and other digital products without having to code. Such platforms are becoming increasingly popular because they simplify the development process, making it faster and more cost-effective compared to code development.

In its work, AZ Agency uses platforms such as Webflow, WordPress, Shopify and Tilda. Each platform has its own characteristics and is suitable for solving specific problems, and in this article, we will tell you in what cases we use one or another platform.

Webflow: For Complex and Dynamic Websites

Webflow is a powerful platform that combines the flexibility of coding with the simplicity of a visual editor. It is ideal for creating complex and dynamic websites that require a high level of customization.

Webflow’s core features include an intuitive interface that allows you to create page layouts using drag-and-drop elements, as well as support for customizing all aspects of design, including CSS styles, animations, and responsive layouts.

Webflow allows you to create and manage complex content structures such as blogs, portfolios or product catalogs. On this platform it is also possible to create online stores with support for payment systems, inventory management and delivery.
Main advantages:

  • Allows you to create unique designs and complex content structures that are difficult to implement on other platforms without writing code.
  • Speeds up the process of creating websites thanks to an intuitive interface and wide possibilities for customization.
  • Allows designers to realize their ideas without the restrictions that are often imposed by template solutions.
  • Suitable for creating both simple and complex commercial projects, including corporate websites and online stores.
  • Availability of integration with Adobe After Effects, and using the Lottie plugin you can create any quick animation.

In addition, frontend developers quite often use Webflow to create a visual, and then transfer it to an independent hosting using code.

Webflow is ideal for agencies and freelancers who need to create high-quality, unique websites for their clients.

In our work, we widely use Webflow for web development exactly because of its flexibility and the capabilities it provides. For example, What’s my QI? was developed on Webflow.

WordPress: For Content-Driven Websites and Blogs

WordPress is one of the most popular platforms for creating websites. Thanks to its flexibility and extensive plugin ecosystem, WordPress is suitable for a wide range of tasks, from simple blogs to complex corporate websites.

WordPress offers many options for designers, from easy installation, customization and management of the site without the need to know programming, a huge selection of existing themes and, if necessary, the ability to fine-tune them through built-in tools and editors. In addition, WordPress has a huge variety of plugins and a modern content editor that allows you to create complex page layouts using blocks.
Main advantages:

  • Suitable for creating almost any type of website thanks to an extensive library of plugins and themes.
  • Large community of developers and users, providing extensive documentation, support forums and educational resources.
  • Most themes and plugins are available for free, and premium options are often reasonably priced.
  • Full control over the site and its content, which is especially important for businesses and professionals.

WordPress is a versatile and powerful platform that allows users of all levels to create and manage websites.
