What is Wized?

Wized is a cloud-based Low Code development platform designed to transform static websites created in Webflow into dynamic and reactive web applications. Wized allows web developers and designers to:

  • Add Interactivity: Implement interactive features such as dynamic forms, real-time rendered lists, interactive elements without the need for extensive coding, and more.

  • Manage Advanced Functionalities: Connect your site with external services, execute custom JavaScript functions, and handle application logic through a user-friendly visual interface.

  • Integrate Third-Party Services: Facilitate integration with APIs and external services to enhance the capabilities of your website.

Why should I use Wized?

Wized offers several advantages that simplify and empower your website:

  • Ease of Use: Simplifies web development by enabling the implementation of advanced functionalities without requiring deep programming knowledge.

  • Direct Integration with Webflow: Transforms Webflow sites into interactive web applications, allowing for functionalities that are not possible with Webflow alone.

  • Intuitive Visual Interface: Provides a visual interface that makes it easy to edit and view changes in real-time.

  • Advanced Capabilities: Allows the execution of custom JavaScript functions, management of cookies and variables, and configuration of API requests, among other functionalities.

  • Intermediary with External Services: Acts as a bridge between Webflow and third-party services for additional functionalities such as email sending, payment processing, and data storage.

What projects can I create?

Wized enables the creation of a wide variety of dynamic and customized web projects. Here are some examples and how Wized helps with each:

  • Interactive Web Applications

    • What you can do: Create sites with dynamic forms, real-time item lists, and interactive elements that respond to user actions.

    • How Wized helps: Facilitates the connection of your Webflow site with external services to process and store data. Allows the execution of custom logic via JavaScript.

    • How Wized helps: Defines and executes actions based on events, allowing process automation.

    • Additional tools: External APIs as needed for automation, like Zapier for complex integrations.

  • Dashboards

    • What you can do: Create interactive dashboards that display real-time data.

    • How Wized helps: Facilitates integration with external data sources and dynamic data visualization.

    • Additional tools: Databases like PostgreSQL, data visualization services like Google Charts or Chart.js.

  • Customer Relationship Management (CRM)

    • What you can do: Develop a system to manage customer relationships, including tracking interactions, sales, and support.

    • How Wized helps: Allows integration with data management and communication services.

    • Additional tools: Databases like Airtable or Google Sheets, and email services for customer communication.

    • How Wized helps: Integrates user management and dynamic content functionalities.

    • Additional tools: Content storage services like AWS S3 and course management tools like Teachable.

  • Marketplaces

    • What you can do: Develop an online marketplace where users can buy and sell products or services.

    • How Wized helps: Facilitates user, product, and transaction management.

    • Additional tools: Payment platforms like Stripe, email notification services, and databases for storing product and user information.

How does Wized work in the full stack development process?

Wized acts as an intermediary that facilitates the connection between the frontend (Webflow) and the backend (external services). Here is what you need to consider:

  • Frontend (Webflow): Use Webflow to design and structure your website.

  • Wized: Implement logic, interactivity, and connect with external services through Wized.

  • Backend (External Services): Use external services for data storage, authentication, payment processing, etc.

Scope and limitations of Wized

It is crucial to understand the role and limitations of Wized within the full stack development process:

  • Intermediary, Not a Storage Solution: Wized does not store data. You will need an external database to store and manage your application's information.

  • Integration with External Services: For advanced functionalities like email sending or payment management, you will need to integrate Wized with appropriate third-party services to meet your specific needs.

  • Client-Side Logic: Wized allows the execution of logic in the user's browser. However, to execute server-side logic, you will need to use a service via an API, whether a proprietary backend or a service like Xano.

What knowledge do I need to use Wized?

Although Wized is designed to be accessible to users with little programming experience, it is helpful to have basic knowledge of:

  • JavaScript: To create custom functions and handle advanced logic.

  • APIs and Web Services: To understand how to integrate external services and handle API requests.

  • Database Concepts: To properly manage your application's data storage.
