Introducing EnableX Visual Builder: A No-Code Visual Builder for Developing Video Calling Apps

TechTalks

Building a fully functional video meeting application is a tedious and complicated process, and that’s why searching for a way that reduces or eliminates the coding part has been a highly sought-after dream. With the launch of the no-code Visual Builder, this dream has finally come to fruition.

Pain Points of Video Meeting App Development

Let’s take a broad look at some of the critical pain points afflicting the modern application development process:

  1. Long Development Cycle  

Though traditional application development is time-intensive, developing a video calling app is even more complicated due to the added layer of complexity of managing multiple video streams. It may take months from sharing design specifications to front-end coding, back-end coding, and then QA. The Software Development Life Cycle may extend further after factoring in multiple rounds of reworks.

That’s where another problem starts: developers often end up sacrificing functionalities & user experience under pressure to deliver within a stiff deadline. Unfortunately, the existing app development process is a tightrope balancing act between speed and functionality.

  1. Lack of Video App Development Expertise

Designing and developing a video meeting application goes beyond building a simple web or mobile app. It requires a thorough knowledge of UI & frontend layout development, server-side programming, analytics, security and privacy, bandwidth optimisation, browser, and device compatibility. The sad reality is that a majority of developers lack the required expertise to build a real-time video meeting application.

  1. Gap in the Design and Code

The disconnect between visual design and code is another headache for developers. Visual designers create mocks/prototypes; developers need to code them. However, they often fail to produce a similar aesthetic impact.

The corresponding change has to be made in the code whenever there is a design change, causing further delay.

Limitations of Existing Low Code Embeds 

To assist software developers, many leading communication providers have recently launched video embed solutions loaded with pre-built User Interface (UI) templates. These platforms provide iframe code for easy integration into apps and browsers. Developers, however, feel constrained with the limited functionalities and capabilities of such pre-defined UI templates. They still need to write additional codes for greater customisation to meet the needs of specific use cases, which is not even possible in a majority of instances.

That’s where EnableX App Visual Builder offers limitless possibilities for developers.
