From startups to Fortune 500s, the world's most effective teams use Retool to build custom business software. Our customers

Powerful components

A complete set of
powerful building blocks

All business software is made up of the same building blocks: Tables, Lists, Charts, Forms, Wizards, Maps and so on. Retool provides those blocks out of the box so you can spend your time assembling your UI, not inventing it from scratch. Instead of hunting down the best React table library, you can put together your app in a few minutes by dragging and dropping.

View all 100+ components
Drag and drop tables, forms, charts, and more to assemble your app quickly.
Connect to anything

Connect to anything

Connect to most databases or anything with a REST, GraphQL or gRPC API. Retool empowers you to work with all of your data sources seamlessly in one app.

How you store your data is up to you. By default, nothing is stored in Retool. When a query is run, the Retool backend proxies the request to your backend. No more ETL-ing data around!

View our native integrations

Read or write data with queries

No need to worry about storing isFetching in Redux or handling errors from your backend. Retool manages all the hard stuff. Read in data from MongoDB, join it to Postgres with SQL, and POST the result to Stripe's API. You only write the things that are custom to your app, like the SQL queries, POST requests, or data transformers.

Built for developers

Retool is highly hackable, so you’re never limited by what's available out of the box. If you can write it with JavaScript and an API, you can build it in Retool.

You can write JavaScript almost anywhere inside of Retool. Just wrap an expression with double brackets like {{ Math.max(select1.value, 10) }} and it’ll execute as sandboxed JS. Using Transformers, you can write larger, reusable blocks of code for manipulating data. There’s also a native API for directly interacting with components and queries via JS.

Write JavaScript in Retool
Connect your queries and logic to prebuilt components like tables and dropdowns. Manipulate data with JavaScript anywhere.

Revision history via Git

Sync Retool apps to a Git repository, so you can manage Retool apps as code. Oh, and choose what version is deployed in a nice GUI.

Set up Retool Git syncing

Fine-grained access controls & audit logs

Granularly control what users can access which apps and which resources. And after they use the apps, query what they did via the audit logs. (Which you can then build Retool apps atop of.)

Control user permissions


Sign in with the services you already use, including Google, Okta, Active Directory Federation Services, and other SAML-based identity providers. Import groups and use them inside of Retool.

On this — it's 6pm Monday. Today we realised major efficiencies in customer support through a few small easy wins w/ form flows in @retool. Literally within 15 mins of identifying a pain point we can roll out a robust app to completely resolve it. 🔮 *Literally* magic.

Wow, @retool is a mind-blowing experience. Even though it was my first project with Retool, I built a fully functional site with GraphQL and REST API integrations and some Javascript data transformation in 2 hours.

I've been using @retool to build out internal dashboards about our code deployments and it's been amazing, really happy with it so far.

I just built 2 internal admin dashboards in 45 minutes. For real. All thanks to @retool 🤯 Every single indie hacker should be using this. Wow. Free plan is generous too.

I loved using @retool. In particular, the fact that I can connect Rest API end-points makes it super easy to integrate into almost anything.

@retool really lives up to the promises they make. Our backend team keeps cranking out admin panels, while the frontend focuses on user-facing UIs. Saves us so much time ❤️

I’m a huge fan. We adopted @retool for an internal project and it accelerated it significantly. I am so over devs who think that the only “proper” tool is hand-crafted, artisanal assembly code on bare metal...(only half joking)

@retool is one of the best apps with the worst marketing I've seen in years. It is TRANSFORMATIVE.

Okay, @retool is pretty incredible. In no time I've started creating a dashboard that: interacts with FabFit's GraphQL API, reads and writes to our dev DB and lists all of the customer's transactions directly from Stripe.

I just want to say that I love love love @retool. It's like a way better VB6 (that is a huge compliment).

I actually believe @retool is one of the best products I’ve used for a while. It enables our SaaS team to do so much when we have to begin scaling our processes. Goodbye to the legacy admin tools I never enjoyed maintaining.
