Ycode: Your Adalo alternative

Adalo is known for its user-friendly UI to create mobile and desktop apps with ease. Building is quick and visual, but customization possibilities and features are limited.

Ycode is for builders that want full control over their apps. This no-code tool comes with significantly more features like advanced (global) design settings, SEO settings, and native Airtable integration.

Design

Ycode

Build from scratch, tweak a template or clone an existing project. In the WYSIWYG drag and drop editor, you can edit all screen sizes individually. The design settings are endless: add hover states, morph effects, backdrops, and more. Create color palettes so your app maintains a consistent look.

Adalo

Choose the app type (desktop or mobile) and start building from scratch, clone a project, or pick from a variety of templates. The editor is user-friendly and makes it easy to build apps visually. However, the customization of components is limited, and global design settings are missing.

User authentication

Ycode

Ycode creates the routes, controllers, and views needed to register and authenticate users. After enabling authentication, pages like login and password reset are created. Tweak these TailwindCSS-styled templates or build each page from scratch instead.

With every new Adalo app, a built-in user data type is included. This allows website visitors to sign up, log in, and log out—also with a Google or Apple account. Similar to Ycode, you can edit all user authentication pages.

Dynamic content

Ycode

Easily connect database fields and display content dynamically. With dynamic pages, there's no need to manually create each page. Just build a template once and new entry pages are created automatically. Great for collections, blogs, directories, etc.

Like Ycode, Adalo makes it easy to import data for dynamic content in their database. Import data manually or in bulk via a CSV file. You have the choice to add basic, user-related content or get more advanced and use formulas for dynamic content.

Elements

Ycode

If you know how to drag and drop, you can build in Ycode! Open the top panel and insert elements from the dropdown menu behind the different categories. In the Layers sidebar, you can reorganize layers and see your project's hierarchy.

Adalo's editor also has an easy drag and drop system. Drag elements from the component menu into your design and re-order them as pleased. Component designs can be edited, but advanced alterations require technical knowledge.

SEO

Ycode

Ycode provides everything you need to rank high: from static and dynamic meta tags to image alt tags and social settings. All code is clean and SEO-friendly. There's also the option to be excluded from search results.

Adalo's code is clean as well. However, in terms of SEO, many functionalities are missing. If you're looking to rank and gain visibility for your web project, this isn't the best no-code builder to meet those needs.

Integrations

Ycode

Ycode lets you connect to any external API. You can also use the native integration with Airtable to import and sync data into your Ycode account.

In Adalo, you can connect to any external API as well. Local database creation is available, though there is no direct integration with Airtable.

Hosting

Ycode

Each project comes with a Ycode subdomain and SSL certificate. Or, set up your own custom domain. Ycode provides reliable and secure hosting. Soon, you'll be able to export code and host it elsewhere.

Adalo

All accounts include hosting (no SSL). Unlimited apps can be created for free, but if you want to publish projects under a custom domain, or need 50+ rows of data, you'll have to upgrade to a paid plan.
