For the MOJO team, web-based services are essential in the digital era and form a major industry that drives technology innovation. For many years, Web (or, more broadly, UX) design has become a focus for better interaction with the audience and other stakeholders such as marketing.

With the user journey as the center of development, the goal is to make the website interface user-friendly to optimise the experience. However, web technology development is constantly expanding, with new platforms, tools and frameworks emerging monthly. Companies are therefore often-faced with a challenge : a shortage of programmers, and a communication gap between user experience designers and developers.

With diverse development methods being used through-out our industry, we predict an era of “No-Code” digital transformation, particularly in front-end software development and machine learning integration. This reinvention of traditional workflows is spreading across companies and growing in maturity.

For example, Machine learning and artificial intelligence are able to convert a conceptual, sketches, ideas or actions into neutral languages that the computer can react to and fasten the speed of production.

Before, UX designers could use Sketch, Adobe XD or some similar tools to construct the basic structure, layout & user interface of a site. Then the process to pass on to the front-end developer often will get very repetitive, as the UX designer needs to describe the desirable effects and functionalities back and forth with endless confirmation calls and follow ups.

The recent development process has helped advance such workflow and becomes more intuitive for the team to bring the project forward. Prototyping tools like InVision and Figma allow the UX designers to be collaborative and work together spontaneously. Their web-based feature also allows quick access and review of the project, turning a design concept into a semi-readiness look prototype.

To make an agile development process, “no-code” or “code conversion” tools are required. Tools like Anima play a crucial role in building a modern interactive website. It helps to reduce the time for front-end developers for slicing and adding implementation onto the website design. Design in – code out.

The Anima tool with extension integrates into the popularly used UX design tools. Enables the design to display and modify in Anima’s control panel. Applying the CSS animations on the designed elements is easy-to-use for non-coding knowledge designers. Moreover, this platform also allows inserting interactive components like videos, YouTube embedded frames, or a map in the prototype design. Turning the site page into an advanced responsive web design (RWD).

Upon importing elements, Anima provides an instant web prototype pop-up window for UX designers. While syncing design to the Anima project. Finally, to export codes for front-end engineering to continue with this development, developers are able to make minor modifications and then deploy them onto web applications.

This new era of work approach between different specialties and fields is getting more common nowadays. With tools as the bridge of communication to execute a concept, which is considered by many as exhausting procedures.

For over 10 years, the MOJO team has had first-hand experience in a wide range of development processes and tools. The team believes that the convenience of these no-code tools for web application development and deployment has been a long-time in coming and represents a new era of development agility. It certainly is an exciting period to see more use of the “no-code” application and showcase growing rapidly in the foreseeable future. We will be there; we hope you will be too.
