    > Is this open source

    Although the app builder you see on the cloud is not open source, we offer a hybrid deployment option - the on-premise agent (OPA) is our execution engine that runs all of the code that you write in Superblocks. It is source available and you can self-host it to ensure your data stays within your network. Feel free to check out the github repo or our docs ( for more details!

  • budibase

    Budibase is an open-source low code platform that helps you build internal tools in minutes 🚀

    I am the cofounder of Budibase - an open source alternative to Superblocks.

    For us, as developers, it was critical that this type of tool had to be open source - like the other tools we used, as we came to rely on.

    Credit for building the platform. Observability is a great idea and something I've not seen before in low code platforms.

    For reference, to the wider community, if you are interested in an open source alternative, here's a link to the Budibase github:

    Appsmith is another open source alternative.

  • Appwrite

    Appwrite - The Open Source Firebase alternative introduces iOS support . Appwrite is an open source backend server that helps you build native iOS applications much faster with realtime APIs for authentication, databases, files storage, cloud functions and much more!

  • ToolJet

    Extensible low-code framework for building business applications. Connect to databases, cloud storages, GraphQL, API endpoints, Airtable, Google sheets, OpenAI, etc and build apps using drag and drop application builder. Built using JavaScript/TypeScript. 🚀
