Hadmean is a no-code, internal tool generator. It is language agnostic, schema driven, extremely customizable, fully featured, user-friendly and has just one installation step.


Here is an application built with Hadmean in under 30 seconds with just database configuration https://demo.hadmean.com

Quick Demo



Most internal tool generators make you build from the ground up i.e you get a blank canvas, drag and drop components, and wire them together with SQL and Javascript/Python to satisfy your business requirement. This I believe has many problems.

  • They require some technical know-how.
  • They require some learning curve.
  • They require time to build and maintain.
  • You duplicate a lot of business logic already in your database.

Hadmean attempts internal tool generation with a new approach by introspecting your database and building a multi-page application based on all the info it can find like your field types, relationships, constraints etc. You literally can have your admin app done under 1 minute without any tutorial or coding.
