DrapCode + Xano

Integrating Xano with Drapcode provides developers with a powerful combination for building dynamic web applications. By leveraging Xano's backend-as-a-service capabilities and Drapcode's intuitive front-end development tools, developers can create scalable, maintainable applications with ease. This comprehensive guide outlines the steps to seamlessly integrate Xano and Drapcode.

Overview of Xano and Drapcode

Xano is a versatile backend-as-a-service platform designed to simplify database management, API creation, and server-side logic through a no-code environment. It offers robust features for building and managing backend infrastructure, making it an ideal choice for developers seeking efficient backend solutions.

Drapcode, on the other hand, is a feature-rich front-end development tool that empowers developers to create web applications using intuitive drag-and-drop functionalities. With Drapcode, developers can design responsive and visually appealing interfaces without writing extensive code, accelerating the development process significantly.

Steps to Integrate Xano and Drapcode

1. Setting Up Xano and Drapcode

Begin by creating a new project in both Xano and Drapcode.

  • Xano Setup:
  • Set up tables in Xano with appropriate fields to define your data structure.
  • Configure API endpoints in Xano to access and manipulate data stored in the tables.
  • Drapcode Setup:
  • Create a new Drapcode project to initiate the front-end development process.
  • Familiarize yourself with Drapcode's interface and available components.

2. Establishing Connection Between Xano and Drapcode

To establish a connection between Xano and Drapcode, you'll need to set up external API integrations in Drapcode.

  • Create External API Endpoints:
  • In Drapcode, navigate to "Settings" > "External API" to create new external API endpoints.
  • Define endpoints for fetching, creating, updating, and deleting data in Xano.

3. Fetching and Displaying Data in Drapcode

Use Drapcode's components to fetch data from Xano and display it in your web application.

  • Data Retrieval:
  • Configure Drapcode to make API requests to fetch data from Xano endpoints.
  • Map the retrieved data to Drapcode components for display.

4. Interacting with Data: Create, Update, Delete Operations

Enable CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations in your Drapcode application to interact with data stored in Xano.

  • Creating Records:
  • Set up forms in Drapcode to create new records, with form submissions triggering API requests to Xano for data creation.
  • Updating Records:
  • Implement functionality in Drapcode to allow users to update existing records.
  • Configure Drapcode to send update requests to Xano endpoints.
  • Deleting Records:
  • Enable deletion of records directly from your Drapcode application.
  • Implement functionality to send delete requests to Xano endpoints.


Integrating Xano with Drapcode offers developers a streamlined workflow for building dynamic web applications. By following the steps outlined in this guide, developers can harness the combined power of Xano's backend capabilities and Drapcode's front-end tools to create robust, scalable, and visually appealing applications efficiently. Whether you're developing a simple website or a complex web application, integrating Xano and Drapcode provides a flexible and intuitive solution for your development needs.
