Appsmith First to Offer Free Collaboration Features in Low Code Software

Company’s open source software adds built-in feedback commentary and Git sync to speed building and deploying CRUD apps

SAN FRANCISCO--()--Appsmith, the first open source low code software helping developers build internal tools, today launched real-time commenting and Git-sync features. It is the first low code tool enabling collaborative internal tool creation to be made available free for community users.

Appsmith now offers a real-time comment feature that enables users to communicate directly, provide feedback and collaborate while working on internal tools. This enables both collaboration between engineering teams as well as with their business counterparts. This close collaboration increases efficiency and saves significant time, while improving the overall quality of the software and ensuring that it realizes users’ expectations.

The Git-sync feature, currently in testing with beta users, gives developers the option to check their software into version control, commit their changes, create new branches to test or review changes in isolation and finally merge those changes to be deployed to their teams.

“With real time commenting and Git-sync, software teams can now leverage low-code to truly build applications together,” said Nikhil Nandagopal, co-founder and head of product at Appsmith. “We are the first to make these collaboration features available free for our community users. It's innate for developers to create great software working collaboratively so we feel it is essential to package these features in our open source software.”

The open source Appsmith software has been downloaded more than 5 million times with users at over 1,000 enterprises in 100-plus countries. It has over 5,000 stars on GitHub and 120 contributors -- 100 of those from outside the company. Appsmith is the first open-source low code software that helps developers build custom (often critical yet tedious) internal and CRUD type applications quickly.

“Building software is only one part of the equation when it comes to agile teams; adoption and improvement of the software is equally important,” said Abhishek Nayak, co-founder and CEO of Appsmith. “Agile teams enable shorter feedback loops so that the software meets the user requirements and is easily adopted within the team. Agile teams are also able to involve the entire team in the software-building process and leverage individual skill sets to their potential. Teams need to review code changes, test those and gather early feedback before the internal tools go live.”
