As a hybrid developer I often get the question from customers/colleagues: Why should I choose low-code or High-Code? To which I usually answer that depends on your situation. Which of course is a completely useless answer without further context.
A lot of articles have been written on the Low-Code versus High-Code topic (and often also including no-code). This is my opinion from the perspective of a developer who has created applications with Low-Code and High-Code. And even today I still deliver apps based on a hybrid approach. While I utilize the power of Low-Code I fully understand that efficiency augmentation with High-Code is not always avoidable. And shouldn’t be avoided at all costs either.
As my choice for a Low-Code platform is Mendix, this will be from that perspective, but several true app-building Low-Code platforms have the same pros and cons applied to them.
While both approaches certainly have their advantages it is ultimately up to the set of requirements that determine which would be better. I do think that in the world of business processes, integrations and rather vague requirements a Low-Code platform such as Mendix works extremely well. Especially due to the initial quick return from requirements refinement to review. Which allows continuous feedback from product owners and end-users as the development team creates the solution.
I do believe strongly that a background in software engineering is an advantage to those choosing to build their applications with low code as it is much easier to go from walking to running when you actually know how to stand up. That being said I have worked with some talented folks completely new to software development and starting in Low-Code that are able to manifest their logical thinking and solution-driven approach far easier into actual solutions. (with some initial guidance to learn some best practices of programming)
The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.
A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!
Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
