In 2017, Stacker emerged as one of the pioneering platforms enabling businesses to build code-free apps using their own data. Fast forward to 2021, Noloco made its entrance into the market with a distinct product vision driven by an ambition to empower as many individuals as possible to create their own business apps. Since our launch, we have gained significant traction in the competitive no-code app builder space.

Both platforms provide outstanding solutions for businesses seeking to develop powerful apps without coding. However, in this article, we will delve into the key distinctions between the two and shed light on why Noloco has captured the hearts of numerous users. With our expanded range of data sources, heightened flexibility, advanced features, and rapid platform evolutions, Noloco offers an irresistible package that sets us apart in the market.

Which Use Cases are best suited to each platform?

Both Noloco and Stacker cater to similar use cases, including CRMs, project management tools, client portals, partner portals, and inventory and order management systems, to name a few. However, the key differences lie in our wider range of advanced features and the increased number of data sources offered by Noloco. We are better suited to handle complex data management requirements, making us the ideal choice for businesses seeking enhanced functionality and customization. Initially, you might think your business will have no need to use Noloco's advanced no-code features, configuration settings, or alternative data source options for your app idea. However, it's critical to choose a no-code platform that can accommodate the evolving needs of businesses.

By partnering with Noloco, you set yourself and your team up for long-term success, especially when you recognise that anyone in your company can learn and benefit from no-code development. Therefore, over time as teams start to think of new ways in which they can use Noloco, choosing the more feature-rich platform will open more doors to support any unanticipated app use cases in the future.

In-depth look at our Features 🛠

Our standout feature at Noloco is our expansive range of data sources. We offer support for various read/write data sources such as Airtable, Google Sheets, Postgres, Xano, and MySQL. In contrast, Stacker only provides compatibility with Airtable and Google Sheets, limiting businesses if they outgrow these platforms.

Additionally, our external REST APIs unlock unlimited possibilities, allowing you to connect with any data source that offers a REST API endpoint. Our flexibility shines through our comprehensive display options, encompassing tables, full-width tables, rows, columns, cards, kanban boards, calendars, timelines, Gantt charts, charts, maps, single records, and split views. Stacker, on the other hand, offers a more limited range of display types, lacking functionalities like Gantt charts and advanced chart options. The finer details of our features and configuration possibilities often become more apparent as you adopt and learn both platforms.

Let's talk about Pricing 💵

When it comes to pricing, both Noloco and Stacker offer competitive plans to suit various business needs. Our pricing structure at Noloco is transparent and based on active users, ensuring affordability for small and medium-sized enterprises. For client or partner portal use cases with higher external user volumes, we provide an external user add-on to ensure fair charges for both internal-facing and external-facing applications. 

Stacker, on the other hand, charges a flat rate per month, irrespective of the number of users logging into your platform. While this may be cheaper for customers building apps with a larger number of users, Stacker does not offer the same level of functionality for businesses aiming to build advanced applications.


In the ever-evolving landscape of no-code app builders, Noloco and Stacker provide businesses with powerful tools to handle and analyze data without coding. However, the advantages of Noloco are clear. With our expanded data source options, increased flexibility, a wider range of advanced features, and swift platform evolutions - felt in the form of fast feature development and regular product updates - we consistently stand out among our competitors. By choosing Noloco, your business gains access to unparalleled customization, seamless integration possibilities, and the ability to tackle complex use cases. As more businesses recognize these benefits, the momentum continues to shift from Stacker to Noloco. Embrace the power of no-code data solutions and make an informed choice that will transform your business operations.
