Low-Code Forum Application
This low-code application simulates a basic forum
in which users can
Comment on posts
Reply to comments on posts
As this is a demo, a drop-down list of usernames is
provided on each form using the database-driven selection
In some routines, you can find steps labeled as "Username / Timestamp Formatting".
This is custom code.
Custom Node.js code can be
Added as a step in a routine OR
Created by converting an existing step to code by clicking the
Node.js logo on the step's header.
This specific custom code was created using the second method and then altered to
change grid elements conditionally. It counts the comments/replies for each post/comment
and sets a variable to display the username and timestamp in a more stylish, readable
format. The counted comments/replies are also added to the grid.
Documentation on the low-code features used in this application
are listed below.
