I tried Appgyver over christmas, since it promised easy front-end (no-)coding I was looking forward to getting rudimentary frontends done faster.
Well, the first real project that I wanted to start didn't compile anymore (internal error from the service), the page told me to reload and try again.
It failed again... And again.
Fine with me, I only spent 10 minutes on the project at this point.

I then searched for the bugreporting page and found it. The sad thing is that when I wanted to open a ticket the server crashed. It didn't even return a HTTP error, just a JSON saying there is a error and a GUID.

I have to say, if a Dev decided to have holidays without new issues that's one way of getting that done.

    Haven't heard of that thing, but would it take much more time if you just pick a framework/library and do the frontend with it? At least you know it will be maintainable and it won't just break out of nothing.

    @kamen It would absolutely work just fine. Aside from business interests, I wanted to make private projects where I focus on the backend. If the appgyver solution provides a simple reliable front-end fast, I don't have to care about that for now.

    Yeah, whatever works for you... except when it doesn't.
