Build and View code

Build App

As an individual developer or a company, we need to share the progress of the development with clients or internal teams for review at multiple stages of development. Also, feedback received from them needs to be implemented in the next releases. Considering that in mind, DhiWise stands with you in dealing with your day-to-day activities.

You can build your Node.js app right after entering models, routes, and permissions. That will help you generate CRUD operations. You can build an app right after that or at a time after this.

Click on the Build app button to generate code for the first time in any application.

  • You can directly apply features to your application with just a click from the configuration. Then again you can re-build the app at any time.

  • Deploy your code on sandbox to test APIs without downloading the code or any other inconveniences.

Building a quality product is hard, developers need to keep a checklist for managing code and the logic in the best possible way.

Depending on the code architecture some of the directories may or may not be generated. For example in MVC code, entity and helper directory won't be available.


The dockerfile in your app code has your code environment defined. Therefore, run your code anywhere effortlessly as long as you have Docker in the system where you wish to run your code.
