When developing a no-code app, one often needs to refer to external data to enrich its database. We have selected 5 APIs (you can take a peek at this if you ask “What’s an API?”) for this article, which you’ll be able to see in action in Adalo or Bubble apps. In this article, you’ll learn how to create an app like Yuka, societe.com or even a weather app without a single line of code.
Do not hesitate to comment if you’d like to see other APIs in action.
Open Food Facts provides tons of info on food products. You can search directly with the barcode of the product. You can get info such as ingredients, allergens, nutritional value, and much more info usually present on labels. The Open Food Facts API can help you make better choices for your diet, or even encourage food manufacturers to propose healthier alternatives.

Note: this application cannot be developed on Adalo, as we are not yet able to scan barcodes.
This database allows you to access all the legal info of French companies. This API from OpenDataSoft gets its data directly from INSEE on their website sirene.fr and allows you to get legal data from every registered company in France. You can do research and consult the registrations. Among the info available: addresses, creation date, categories, main activities, etc.
Note: as you perhaps noticed, the API only works for research. There is currently a bug on the Adalo side on data reception. It has been reported, and is being resolved on their end.
Just as with Open Food Facts, Open Beauty Facts can provide you with all the info on cosmetic products. Open Beauty Facts allows you to understand better the product you’re looking to buy, or are currently using. You’ll be able to look up the ingredients, the additives, the labels and lots of other info.

The data is coming straight from Santé publique France. It is updated daily, and keep you in the loop regarding the spread of COVID-19 in France. Hospital data is updated every day by department.
This API from OpenWeather is one that provides weather-related data. The OpenWeather API will allow you to know the weather in real-time in a city, as well as an hourly and a 5-day forecast. The weather data from OpenWeather is available for locations around the world.
You’ll need to create an account to use the API, but you can try it for free.
Every week a summary of the nocode news Bubble and Adalo, themes, plugins and much more.
We have been immersed in the development community for several years now, and have been able to identify the power and speed of NoCode development.
