Default Any "Drag & Drop" Programming Software?

Hi! Do anyone know about a good "drag & drop" programming software or another software that doesn't require any coding skills?

Thanks!

It's usually a bad idea to try to create software without coding skills, but here's one program that a friend of mine likes: Alpha 5

It should be noted, that to accomplish better stuff, even with Alpha 5, it does help to know the BASIC language.

Short answer: no
But 1st, what do you want to achieve? Visual studio will produce very basic windows desktop software for a point and click perspective, though to do anything useful you need to program (hence why its called programming, not mouse moving)

There are also lots of specific apps that create specific things via point and click, so define your requirements, and maybe you can get an answer.

Ok, I will check it out.

Ok, so its going to be a webscraper of sorts. Thats not going to something you can do with point and click.

It will have to handle a number of specific functions, proxies, probably a database as well.

If you have time>money, a .net based program would be the way to go, vb.net and c# are usefriendly languages, with excellent free IDEs (visula studio express), but it will take a lot of time to learn.

If you have money>time, write out exactly how it should function, in detail, and hire someone.

If you dont know how to map it out in exact detail, unless you have several thousands to throw at an experienced agency, its not the project for you

Alice.org

It is designed for children, but if you are new to programming it is great to play with it.

Here is another one:
Scratch | Home | imagine, program, share

Both are great for learning how to program.

I did just go back and read through the thread and saw later you said you wanted to create a niche finding program.

That's a bit more sophisticated than you can probably handle if this is your first rodeo.

I'm not saying you can't do it, but it sure will take you awhile and you aren't going to find drag and drop programming that will do what you want.

I'm assuming you'll want some visual elements (Buttons, lists, etc) so like others I'll definitely recommend .NET (C# in particular), but there are 2 pieces to this puzzle:
1) knowing a language
2) knowing how to program

The two are very different. You can hack your way through it, but the quality of your product may suffer.

Start here: Object-oriented programming - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

That's the conceptual part. There are many more paradigms, but that will get you going.

The nice thing about C# and Visual Studio is that it is free and is one of the better IDE's available. There are lots of tutorials and plenty of free resources online to help you learn the things you need.

If any good ones exist it would still be very niche and the more abstraction you have, the less control you'll have over the core language itself.

If you're looking to create innovative apps, learn a language. It'll probably be more beneficial than learning a complex app that can create programs.

I second this. Not sure where you are in life, but programming is both interesting and lucrative. You would be well served to learn .NET, C#, PHP, PERL, etc...

Not only will you be able to build your software application on the cheap, you'll learn a ton and build skills that can be sold as a service or products later on.

Just my 2 cents. Good luck!

I know a few.. Microsoft Expression Web, Visual Studio.net. These are drag and drop but you still need to do a little coding.

Obvious choices in the drag and drop world are Ubot or ZennoPoster.
I have Ubot and love it, have created quite a few bots to help with the automation side of life - the software allows you to create executable files. Been a user since version 3.5 and its now at 4.1 - has been earning me some good money putting together bots for others and via my site.

Zenno, I have tried and didn't get on with - whether it was too complex for me I don't know. The main downside of it is that no executable files are created so you need the software to run the templates it creates.

Feel free to give me a shout if you talk more about Ubot.

Cheers!

You look young. You have plenty of time to learn a new language.

HTML is NOT programming, but I just learning that within a couple weeks, and I'm sure there are people have done it even faster.

I just started learning PHP and I will give it about a year until I got it solid, creating my own programs and stuff.

Learn it. This skill alone could bank you $150k + per year. Or, better yet, you could create your own software and do the marketing yourself. Also, added benefit of creating simple software for your list.

Thanks!

When building a bot.... It is uBot hands down....

For desktop application development, I would check out Limnor Studio.






God Bless,

Being with ZennoPoster for a long time I must say you should go with it. It does not required programming skills, but required some focus (one of the key qualities of successful people) to fully master it. But once you do that you'll have an incredible power on the automation of your business.

The reality is you're not going to make a good desktop application without decent coding skills/knowledge. The graphic object explorers like Limnor Studio above aren't going to help you if you don't know the differences between strings, variables, functions, and classes.

The basic principles of programming are a lot simpler than they seem to a lot of nonprogrammers. You just need a good study of the basics, and from there you can branch out into other languages, although it's still my personal belief that php is the easiest way to start learning program. (It's easy, can be object oriented, and has an easy output to interface with: HTML)

Hi Jimmy,

My advice to you is starting to learn some programming skills online.
There are many sources and video tutorials out there.
There are also the recommendations on this thread, which i didn't know about,
they could get the job done, but i think the skills itself are more important.

Good luck!

When it comes to creating web pages, I just use Adobe Dreamweaver because it's a "Drag and Drop" system but of course you can switch it to source code to see the codes and edit there if you want to.
