Why is it worth spending time to organise your Bubble app properly?
If you’re building a SaaS app on a nocode platform like Bubble, it’s highly likely your app structure is going to get fairly complex.
Whether it’s workflows, page logic or database triggers - if you don’t have a plan to organise them you could quickly end up with an app which is a nightmare to update and maintain.
There are a few things it’s worth taking the time to do to structure your app so that it’s easy to update and maintain.
If you ever plan to sell your business - it’s going to be absolutely critical it’s well structured and easy to hand over.
Last year, I sold an app I built on Bubble using Microacquire
. If I hadn’t taken the time to structure it properly and document everything, it would have been impossible to hand it off to someone else to run it.
Taking the time to properly organise your app also makes it easier for you to bring help from other nocode developers if you need help with some specific features.
This approach relies heavily on reusable elements.
If you’re not using reusable elements everywhere in your app you really are missing out.
There is one obvious benefit of Reusable Elements - by using them you don’t need to rebuild and maintain the same element on different pages in your app.
They are also an amazing way to make designing and maintaining your app much easier.
For example, I use them for quite a few different things.
