Are you a developer who:
Then You Need To Know About This.
Maybe you've looked at a bunch of form builders because you know how time-consuming and complex forms can get, but you always seem to run into roadblocks.
What if you need to define complex logic and workflows, such as conditional field visibility, field calculations, and dynamic form branching—AND you need the forms rendered in Angular so you can connect them to other Angular components?
You're probably looking at doing it by hand, but if your application is form-heavy, it's tens or even hundreds of hours to get it all done.
Or what if you need to extend its capabilities, implement a lot of custom CSS, integrate your existing auth provider, require revision control or offline mode, configure team-based user access, or handle PDFs?
Then there's the data.
It needs to be validated, stored, and integrated with backend services or APIs to process submissions.
Sometimes on-premise, in the cloud, or in legacy systems, or all three.
ALSO, what if a form needs to change and it's deployed in multiple places? Every change request will come to YOU and you'll have to spend hours to hunt down each location and make the changes.
On top of that, you might need to keep everything in house, in your environment, which rules out leveraging external 3rd-party tools.
When you start looking at the potential requirements, building Angular forms is its own development project all by itself that requires extra hours to build and maintain.
But there's a better way.
Form.io is a form management, data management, and rendering platform that lets you, or anyone, do all the complex form building, AND their APIs, in a drag and drop interface, that will output the JSON schema for you.
That means, as a developer, you don't have to be the one who's actually building the forms or APIs.
Then, with Form.io's Angular Renderer (or AngularJS Renderer), you can dynamically render your Angular forms AND automatically hook that form into the REST API that's generated from the same JSON schema—with a single line of code you can just copy and paste into your app.
If the form needs to change, you or anyone can edit the form in the drag and drop interface and the form will update automatically, in real time, and reflect the changes everywhere its deployed.
That's especially useful when you're performing rapid prototyping or implementing user feedback and you need to iterate with speed.
And when all the data is flowing through Form.io, you get a single source of truth that updates in real time that you can run reports on so you're never in the dark.
You might be asking: "Can Form.io handle X?"—like those things mentioned above:
Forms are also fully responsive out of the box and work on any device.
