About Retool

Retool is a powerful platform designed to expedite the process of building internal tools. It offers a drag-and-drop interface for assembling user interfaces from a variety of building blocks, such as tables, lists, charts, forms, wizards, maps, and more. This allows developers to focus on assembling their UI rather than creating it from scratch.

Here are four key features of Retool

  1. Wide Range of Building Blocks: Retool provides a comprehensive set of building blocks like tables, lists, charts, forms, wizards, maps, etc., enabling developers to quickly assemble their applications.
  2. Connectivity: Retool can connect to most databases or anything with a REST, GraphQL, or gRPC API. This allows developers to work with all of their data sources seamlessly in one app.
  3. Customizability: Retool is highly customizable. Developers can write JavaScript almost anywhere inside of Retool, and if they can build it in React, they can use it in Retool.
  4. Security and Deployment: Retool comes with built-in security, reliability, and permissioning. It can be hosted on-premises, behind your own VPN, and in your own VPC. It also offers fine-grained access controls and audit logs.
