Ycode: Your Bubble alternative

Bubble and Ycode are kinda like twins separated at birth, each characterized by their sleek appearance and smart features—both a complete package with all the charm!

That said, each twin has individual strengths. While Bubble helps you design projects to a tee, Ycode is more powerful when it comes to dynamic content and databases.

Design

Ycode

Start a project from scratch, use a template, or clone a project and copy it into your account with one click. Once in the canvas, you'll have an extensive design sidebar with advanced options to play around with. Customize each element until you're fully satisfied, and see the changes happening directly in front of you!

Artboard
Bubble

Like Ycode, Bubble's UI is clean and sparkly. There are several design options, though all the elements are shown at once which can be overwhelming at first. There's no easy project clone feature but you can transfer apps to other accounts (make sure to move a duplicated copy to keep projects in both accounts).

User authentication

Ycode

Set up dedicated pages for user authentication like login, signup, and password pages. You can tweak the automatically created pages or build your own from scratch.

Bubble

Each new application comes with a built-in user data type that lets website visitors sign up and log in or out. You can also create Google, Twitter, and Facebook signups.

Dynamic content

Ycode

Creating dynamic content is super easy in Ycode. Simply add a new local database and connect elements on your canvas to data fields in the database. All the content can be managed and updated directly in the database, manually, or in bulk.

Artboard
Bubble

Bubble lets you create your own database too, though it might be a bit harder for beginners to connect data. If you want to work with dynamic content, it's likely that you need to first browse through some how-to manuals or (video) tutorials.

Elements

Ycode

You'll find a wide selection of responsive elements— from sliders and collapsible blocks to text links and custom code blocks. In the Layer sidebar, you can keep track of your layers and reorganize their hierarchy, if necessary.

Artboard
Bubble

There are a variety of elements available in Bubble's library. You can also add more with plug-ins. All elements are responsive and divided into three categories to easily find what you're looking for.

SEO

Ycode

Search engines love Ycode's clean semantic code, high-speed page loads, and mobile-friendly designs. You can add social settings, create static or dynamic metadata, and even exclude your web project from Google so it can't be found.

Artboard
Bubble

Bubble meets all SEO standards that search engines request and lets you customize how your site is seen by crawlers. You can set your own SEO meta and social sharing data, as well as mark the option to be excluded from Google search results.

Integrations

Ycode

With a native Airtable integration, Ycode makes it very simple to connect your Airtable data fields. You also have the option of connecting external APIs using nothing more than a base URL.

Artboard
Bubble

In Bubble, you can use a native Airtable integration or add API connections. Define how calls are authenticated, and which calls are used as data sources or as actions.

Hosting

Ycode

Use a Ycode subdomain or add your own custom domain name. Each domain comes with an SSL certificate. Hosting is reliable and secure.

Artboard
Bubble

Bubble offers site hosting and custom domains with SSL as well. You can download a CSV file with your project's information but it's not possible to host your app elsewhere or access its code.
