Low or No code vs Code

Low or No code vs Code

If you need to create a marketing site to showcase your products or services, what tools or tech stacks can you use?

The "easy" option - go no code

Today, there are many drag-and-drop website builders available, such as Wix, Webflow, and Wordpress.

The pros

  • They are relatively low-cost and can take you a long way.
  • You don't need to be an expert developer to create or maintain these sites.
  • Building and adding new content is usually faster.

The cons

  • The "no code" option can take you 80-90% of the way, but when you need the extra 10-20% of functionality, you'll need some experience and coding knowledge to overcome the challenges.
  • Some things may not be achievable using certain tools.
  • Performance issues can arise, as it's difficult to achieve good web scores using web tools, even with best practices.

The "hard" option - code

There are many options to create websites with code, such as NextJS and SvelteKit, which are frontend frameworks.

The pros

  • There are no limitations - anything you can do with code can be possible on the site.
  • Web performance is likely to be better. If you build the same site with the same design using both code and no-code options, the one built with code will likely have better performance.

The cons

  • You'll need an experienced developer who knows at least the basics of web development.
  • The initial development and maintenance may take longer.


As you can see, there is no simple answer to what you should choose.

In my personal opinion, going with code will benefit you in the long run.

However, if you are constrained by time and money, then going with a no-code option may be more suitable.
