My team makes some internal apps using react to run internal business processes, so seems like a perfect candidate for retool.
I started investigating by trying to port an existing react app to retool and realized that we have A LOT of business logic inside the react app. For example:
- munging data from one format to another
- counting record types
- conditionals based on combinations of record types
- small state machines
Anyone else have this experience? Have you changed your app building approach? I’m thinking for this particular app the answer is either a) to complicated for retool or b) move business logic to a separate service and simplify UI.
I think B is still useful, I don’t like building UI, but I wanted to hear what others have done.
