Imagine being able to turn your imagination into a tangible reality without any barriers in a record time. The new-age app builders can do just that! 

However, there are many app builders that can help you create apps for diverse niches such as business, gaming, social media, and more. Yet selecting the right tool from them can indeed be a challenging task.  

In this blog, we will compare two popular app builders- DhiWise and Teta. This comparison will help you decide which one is best for your app development based on their features and ease of use. 

Before going deeper into the blog let's take an overview of both platforms.

Overview of DhiWise and Teta

A. DhiWise- Multi Technology Supporting ProCode Platform

DhiWise is an intelligent app development platform for mobile and web app development. It aims to empower developers for efficient and quality app building in an intelligent way through the visual programming interface. 

The app builder platform supports advanced technologies that include Flutter, React, Kotlin (Android), and SwiftUI (iOS) for front-end development and Node.js for back-end development. Moreover, the platform provides multiple supporting features and popular tool integrations to speed up development and improve code quality. 

How does DhiWise work for developers?

DhiWise offers different features for its app builders for React, Flutter, Android, and iOS technologies. So,  developers can select their desired technology for web and mobile app development. The app builder converts Figma, AdobeXD, or Sketch designs to the desired code. 

The generated code can be customized using the smart editor. Also, it allows you to set up actions, integrate API, set navigation, manage lifecycle methods, add authentication, make configuration changes, preview app pages/screens, share previews, and more. 

And once the customization is done, you can easily download code or integrate it with their GitHub and GitLab repositories for easy code sharing and collaboration. The platform also provides VS-Code and IntelliJ extensions, allowing developers to make code changes in their favorite IDEs.   

B. Teta- A low-code app builder

Teta is a full-stack low-code app builder for native mobile application development. The app builder provides a simple easy-to-use interface to speed up the app-building process. However, instead of drag and drop the platform introduced a TreeView, so you can add new nodes easily and also see all of them together.  

How does Teta work for developers?  

With Teta, you can build and customize your application from the App Builder page. This page consists of all the UI elements (also known as widgets) that you can use while building your app’s layout. The builder allows you to create pages and components. 

It doesn't offer a drag-and-drop option for page creation; instead, it provides a TreeView of page components, where you can add nodes. It has a default page (Scaffold) with appbar, bottombar, and menu (drawer), which is disabled by default.  To start building an app one can directly enable these widgets and add a child inside it.

After adding a selected widget from the predefined set of widgets.  One can customize widget properties, visibility, and action. The changes can be previewed in the Mobile Area and responsiveness is checked. 

Finally, once the customization is done for pages, one can test the app by previewing it. Then the code can be downloaded, and the app can be published to the app store using the same platform.

Key Feature Comparison: DhiWise vs Teta

When it comes to features, both DhiWise and Teta offer a wide range of options. Let’s take a look at each of them.
