PoolParty Application Development Framework

The key to your user friendly PoolParty applications

PoolParty Application Development Framework

The PoolParty Application Development Framework (ADF) is a low-code application development framework for the PoolParty Semantic Suite. Under the umbrella of the ADF, you can benefit from fully programmed and executable, customizable applications as well as from the possibility to program individual applications on your own. In all cases, the ADF provides the basis for the creation of application software, in offering the necessary architectural paradigm, development philosophy and integrated solutions for common tasks and routines.

The swift way to your PoolParty frontend application.

The ADF completes the PoolParty Semantic Suite. Building on the flexibility and performance of our PoolParty middleware components, you can use the ADF on top, to build user front-ends, workbenches, dashboards and connectors to other systems by yourself or use our ready-mades, which you can easily configure or customize.

While you need some simple screen interactions to configure the ready-made solutions, programming your own solution only requires some knowledge of React and JavaScript.

The diverse requirements for user frontends that we saw there encouraged us to provide an open and modular system. This turns PoolParty from a powerful middleware into a powerful full-stack offering.

Diverse as the number of use cases PoolParty covers

Manipulate your taxonomy, interact with your knowledge graph, control your document tagging, recommend items, work with your data, search your content, control your LLM – there are countless applications which can be built with ADF.
