Show HN: Superblocks – IDE for Internal Apps, APIs and Cron Jobssuperblocks.com
Hey HN, I’m Brad, one of the creators of Superblocks and a YC alum, excited to share our internal tooling IDE.
As developers ourselves, we faced the problem of building tons of internal admin UIs, backends to connect siloed data, reporting jobs, and data pipelines. For UIs we would build one-off React components. For integrations, we would have to decipher vendor docs and implement auth. Finally, for reporting jobs we had to handle failures and observability – many hours of repetitive engineering effort.
So we built Superblocks, an internal tooling IDE to connect to any datasource (databases, APIs, data warehouses), drag and drop your common UI components (tables, charts, forms), spin up backend APIs and schedule cron jobs, all in one place.
Since developers we spoke to hated repeatedly handling permissions, hooking up observability, configuring security and managing CI/CD pipelines, we built Superblocks to integrate with popular dev tools like Datadog, Elastic, GitHub, GitLab, Okta and more. Use our cloud version, or run a self-hosted agent to ensure your data never leaves your VPC .
Superblocks is quite differentiated from other “low-code” tools out there: * 100% built for developers: observability, debuggability, version control, extend with Python & JS * A platform, not a point solution: An all-in-one builder for internal tools: app UIs, APIs and cron jobs * Agent architecture: source-available, stateless and lightweight vs a legacy on-prem deployment * Scalable pricing: Pay for apps by Creator and usage-based pricing for end users (based on day passes) so it’s affordable to have 100s or 1000s of end users. Workflows and Jobs are billed on the number of executions.

Would love to hear feedback!
