Is DaDaBIK for Coders or NON-Coders? Both

Do you have a database you need to move online, but don’t have the budget to hire a developer? Want to build an internal tool, a public form or a database frontend?

DaDaBIK makes it easy to build web applications without touching a line of code. It makes creating an online database application easy and fast. DaDaBIK is a low-code/no-code database application builder written in PHP.

First developed in 2001, DaDaBIK is a popular, mature software product used by thousands of customers to make their databases available and updatable online with user-friendly, mobile-friendly, web-based interfaces.

No coding is required.

Start with the data you already have, including:
• an Excel/CSV file,
• an existing database (MySQL, PostgreSQL, SQLite, or MS SQL Server)
• or even from scratch (you don't need a data source if you don't have it).

DaDaBIK creates the database frontend for you automatically, in minutes: it has an integrated CRUD generator which creates a basic CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) online interface with ease. Once generated, DaDaBIK’s visual interface configurator allows you to personalize and improve your Web database application to suit your organization’s workflow and needs.

Want to see what a DaDaBIK web app looks like in action? This demo HelpDesk app was built from scratch with DaDaBIK, without writing any PHP or Javascript code (no-code approach).

If you know how to code, then you know the frustration of having to write similar code, again and again, for different projects, when you build a simple database front-end or more sophisticated Web applications (internal tools, workflow and business process automation, public forms). We are developers as well and we know that feeling.

As a low-code solution, DaDaBIK lets you focus only on the code that matters, so you can stop wasting your time with repetitive and boring tasks. DaDaBIK can drastically reduce your development time.

By Using DaDaBIK as a web app builder, you create web applications with a no-code approach (even starting from your existing DB) and then, if the project requires complex workflows or specific needs, simply inject custom PHP & Javascript code using the unique DaDaBIK now-code + low-code integration approach (hooks, custom functions, ...). And yes, you can self-host your applications.

Do you need to integrate existing applications with DaDaBIK? Regardless of the technology used, you can query the database (DaDaBIK stores raw data) in SQL or call the HTTP API to get content in JSON or use hooks to execute some operations (e.g. call your URLs) when a particular event occurs. For example you could use DaDaBIK to create a headless CMS application.

Check out this CRM software, developed from scratch with DaDaBIK, it's no-code + very small addition of PHP & Javascript code.

Capterra & G2 Reviews

A very good tool to gain time developing your custom web based applications.

5.0

This software allowed me to easily expand and develop gradually my web applications, focusing only on the relational database structure, and leaving to DadaBik the management of the forms that the final users will see.

DaDaBIK is a mature easy to use web front end for database-driven applications

5.0

What I like most about DaDaBIK is that the application is highly flexible and expandable. It works out of the box without coding knowledge but can be extended with own code if wanted. One can start a project and it immediately becomes usable application.

Stefan T.
University Professor (Germany)

So far the best tool for building online applications

Easy development for custom made applications for my clients and my own administration (ticketing system, office administration and much more)

Increased speed in programming activities. Excellent return on investment: with a small amount of money, I can save a lot of time avoiding repetitive programming. Constantly updated by the author, with new features in every release.

Dadabik made creating database driven applications easy. I always liked it. So I have contributed to the translation of Dadabik into my mother tongue, Telugu, language spoken by the largest number of people in India, after Hindi.

More feedback from our users

DaDaBIK is performing really great for us. I'm so glad we purchased it! I have not seen anything that can do everything we need (eg. TablePress, NinjaTables, WP Data Tables, etc.)

Don Worth, USA
Ventura County Genealogical Society

I have been impressed by DaDaBIK's ability to quickly generate a basic CRUD app, as that's all I was looking for at the time, but now I'm knocked down by how clever and powerful it is.

Ken Christensen, USA

I have used DaDaBIK for most of the time it has been around. The progress it has made and the space it fills between spreadsheets and off the shelf packages are just amazing.

Gregory White, UK
IT Consultant & video producer/director

Even if you can program in PHP with MySQL, DaDaBIK saves an imense amount of time. And for novices, it requires no knowledge of programming to implement a tight and efficient database front end.

David Serey

DaDaBIK is such an excellent tool and it helped me to quickly design and convert our existing products without the pain of coding from ASP.Net/SQL Server to PHP/MySql."

Dave, UK

DaDaBik is an awesome powerful tool for front-end development. Your team fast-tracked my application development by months.

Tom C., China

...I take this message to congratulate for the fantatic responsive user interface which makes Lerici a fantastic product. 8.0 works well both on Ipad and Iphone...

Paolo Illing, Canada

So far, the most comprehensive, fast and easy to use solution for presenting your data online. No special knowledge needed, no coding. Fast and friendly support.

Verified customer's review, Hotscripts.com

An excellent solution for publishing data from a mySQL database. No coding required. Great forum and support (even for a minor error caused by an old php-version on my webserver, they found a workaround very fast).

Verified customer's review, Hotscripts.com

I can't thank you enough to have put in so much hard work for this type of software. It has really helped me out!

James, Canada

Great stuff! Really makes rapid deployment a reality.

Bill, Canada

Thank you for providing such a useful piece of software! I am using DaDaBik as a front end for the database for my new business. We will use it to search through our inventory, add stock, keep records of sales and expenses and maybe even create invoices if this is possible.

Catherine, Australia

I know a little php and learn best by tweaking codes done by others. I choose DaDaBIK because it's just small enough to get my hands around quickly and next to that it has all functions I need. Thanks for your effort and the information in your forums!

Maarten Boerema, the Netherlands

At the end I would like to say, that this ist just the tool I was looking for: I needed a simple frontend for manipulating and inserting data on my db, but I was to lazy te write my own script with fields and butons for "update" or "delete" and so on.

Thomas, Germany

Thanks for a great way to manipulate data. It cannot come easier than DaDaBIK. Keep up the good work and I intend to make sure that it will impact on organizations in Kenya that support various causes from poverty reduction, AIDS awareness, clean drinking water campaigns which will benefit from easily accessible and searchable data as enabled by Dadabik.

Mucheru, Kenia

I’ve enjoyed working with your product on one of my projects. The learning curve is not too great and I was getting the results I wanted very rapidly.

Larry K., California

I am using the DaDaBIK to enter data into a database used for my iPhone application. I really love DaDaBIK it does almost all I want.

Michael Widegren, Sweden

Endorsed without reservation. A great product that allows you to populate, query, or edit any standard database (MySQL and the like) through a highly flexible Web interface, all without any php/MySQL coding.

David Hochman, USA

I have a very small non-profit client who wanted to modernise their IT but don't have much money to spend. They are blown away with how quickly and cost effectively I was able to deploy a modern looking, professional, intuitive application using Dadabik. They were also amazed at how I was able to make quick updates during the demo (just adding entries to a table that automatically appeared in a drop down field on a form), their previous "home brew" application would normally take a couple of weeks for a change!

Alan Milnes, UK

I run a fansite for a few online games, and we're developing tools to help users through their play. We're running the tools off of an sqlite database and using DaDaBIK to allow our contributors to add and edit data about spells/stats/gear/etc. I also hope to create a front-end install to allow visitors to search our data and generate CSV files for their own tools and spreadsheets. Running our tools off of a single database is reducing the time required to update multiple applications as data gets added, and DaDaBIK is providing a simple user interface so that my partners can keep the data current without having to learn complicated software. My PHP skills are not very strong, so it has saved me a lot of time in coding repetive CRUD forms, interfaces, and session/auth scripting, allowing me to focus my time on the more important task of creating new tools.

Nick Steimling, USA

Firstly, thanks for a great product! This is exactly what I was looking for. I use DaDaBIK as a web frontend to a MySQL database. I set up the database for a political organization so that they would not have to use dozens of spreadsheets to keep track of the tens of thousands of contacts they have. They really like the search functionality, and the ability to export as a .CSV file. This helps them because they have only a few internet connected computers for 20 volunteers. They also use DaDaBIK for data entry every time they find a new contact.

Nickolai, USA

Used DaDaBik since about 2005 and have "grown up with it". Excellent Product and Excellent Support!!! P.S. Go right for the Enterprise Version!!!
