Google announced on 14 Jun 2018 that App Maker had been made generally available to G-suite business and enterprise users. App Maker is a low-code development environment for developing software based on its G Suite productivity and communications suite. App Maker uses templates for building UIs, which can be assembled via drag-and-drop.
Create an App using Google App Maker
I’ve recorded the webapp creation as below video (silent mode). The whole creation process was about 30 minutes and has been reduced to 5 minutes.
Below listed two scripts (client script and server script) which are copy&paste to App Maker:
The Produced Webapp
Below is the video recorded (at normal speed) the webapp which produced by App Maker:
In my experiment, I’ve used about one hour to make the webapp. Compares to the traditional webapp (in past 3) which used about three hours. App Maker could reduce 70% less of creation time. It is best for making intranet or internal applications. App Maker not only capable connects to external RESTful service, but also connect to Google Cloud SQL. In this case, it provides auto-synchronize the data to the database with no coding needed.
