Taking Low Code to the Next Level

Built for JavaScript Developers

The JavaScript ecosystem is 17.5 million developers strong. 69% of all professional developers understand it. We built 8base around an already thriving language and developer ecosystem rather than invent a brand-new language and manufacture developers around it.

Drop into Code Anywhere

8base lets you develop visually but enables developers to drop into code when necessary or desired.

Build any Type of Application

Build a varied range of application and solution types from consumer-facing apps to internal apps and enterprise solutions.

Serverless API-First Architecture

Auto-scaling infrastructure, separation of backend and frontend enabled via GraphQL API.

Full Design Control

Enables the development of digital products in addition to internal apps with styling control down to the individual UI element level, including custom CSS.


Almost all low-code products charge per end-user, which renders them unusable for consumer-facing apps and digital products.
