Low-code visual backend builder, powered by AI

A brief overview of BuildShip

BuildShip is a low-code backend builder powered by AI - to build your app’s complete backend visually right from the browser. With BuildShip, you can create powerful APIs, Scheduled tasks / CRON jobs to perform database CRUD operations, and combine any tools and AI models effortlessly in your backend workflows and ship them scalably.

BuildShip offers 100s of pre-built nodes to popular platforms like Sendgrid, WhatsApp, Firebase, Supabase, Postgres, and AI models on OpenAI, Replicate, Hugging Face, etc. However, if any integration is missing you are not stuck! You can generate any node using AI. You can even use custom code with any NPM package. 

BuildShip is a great option as a backend for your apps built on no-code tools like FlutterFlow, Bubble, Bravo Studio, WeWeb, Toddle etc or apps built on frontend frameworks like Next, React.js, Astro, Vue.js etc

Give BuildShip a try, especially if you are hitting the limits of your current no-code tools or you are a developer who wants to build ideas fast without having any coding limitations.
