Build Better, Build Faster with Retool's Low-Code Platform

Retool: Accelerate Your Internal Software Development with Low-Code

Retool is a leading low-code platform designed to expedite the development of internal tools and business software. It combines the ease of a drag-and-drop interface with the flexibility of custom code, enabling developers to create complex internal CRUD (create, read, update, delete) applications rapidly. Retool simplifies the software development process, allowing teams to focus on solving unique business challenges instead of getting bogged down by repetitive coding tasks.

How does Retool work?

Retool provides a visual programming environment bolstered by the option to integrate custom JavaScript and SQL, offering both speed and adaptability. With over 100 pre-built components and a comprehensive IDE, developers can craft custom business software up to 10 times faster than starting from scratch. Retool supports connections to virtually any database or API, allowing for the seamless integration of data sources and external services into applications​​.


Retool’s platform is packed with functionalities aimed at streamlining the development of internal tools:

  • Visual Editor & Custom Code: A hybrid interface that blends drag-and-drop simplicity with the power of code.
