DDX Bricks

Leverage DDX Bricks to create apps with no coding

What are DDX Bricks?

DDX Bricks are pre-built objects that allow you to create advanced visualizations and apps and can be customized by simply copying and pasting code.

With DDX Bricks, business users, citizen developers, and full stack developers can quickly iterate, prototype and compose new apps with beautiful and advanced features. You can choose from Bricks available in the Domo Appstore. You can also use DDX Bricks to render a new library you found online — it’s as easy as copy and paste.

 

 

DDX Bricks lets you use HTML, CSS and JS to completely customize your app. These new custom solutions visuals are immediately rendered and can be easily updated all within your Domo instance.

Now there is a seamless path for business users to progress from out-of-the box app building constraints to scalable, powerful, customized objects that extend Domo to meet any business need.

DDX Bricks allow you to:

  • Quickly prototype and iterate from an infinite number of possible business applications
  • Build an application from scratch using HTML, CSS and JS tied to Domo data
  • Copy and paste examples from the web to customize your dashboard
  • Build a brand new chart type by using your favorite UI library tied to Domo data
  • Leverage D3 snippets to create innovative new data visualizations or specialized UI components
  • Edit in real-time with the DDX script box to quickly perfect your app
  • Easily connect to any dataset available in Domo or use sample data to start building
  • Share and reuse the solutions you build across your organization
  • Create custom navigation menus, drag and drop DDX Bricks into layouts and dashboards, and add DDX Bricks to automated features in Domo like scheduled reports
