Instant, Extensible, Secure GraphQL

From data to API without a line of code

While you model your data, 8base generates a GraphQL API so your Data and API layers are created together.

Leave the CRUD to us, leave the coding to you

With 8base generating the create, read, update, and delete of your data, you can focus on the code in your API that makes your app unique.

The power of RBAC, simplified to a click

8base's role based access control gives you simple, but powerful control over how your users can access your data.


Deployable from first click, ready for your code

Full application in a click, ready to deploy

Our accelerators get you started with a powerful frontend that includes common navigation, authentication, user services and more

Drag and drop development with the components you know

Instead of writing the same JSX again, our drag and drop canvas let's you instantly see the results of your work visually while letting you focus on coding where it truly matters.

Every component, every event,
customizable with your code

No tailoring your code to the platform, use JavaScript and CSS to customize your application in every way you need.


Production ready, scalable and fully managed from the start

Production Ready

Stay focused on your vision. Behind the scenes, we manage the platform to ensure it's production-ready.


8base auto-scales as needed and has options for dedicated- and self-hosted.


8base provides comprehensive application core services such as role-based security, authentication and single-sign-on that can be managed in the low-code environment.

8base was built to amplify the power of the world’s 17.5 million JavaScript developers. We abstract away boring and repetitive work while letting developers focus on the code that matters most.

Our product is rich in features that support development and developer workflows.
