I have been tasked with updating an older Bubble app that has had many iterations. Some bubblers before me (including myself) don’t clean up after themselves when working on an application. That means test data, API calls, endpoints etc. can get left behind after a project is complete.
Coming back to the project later, bubbles API connector is now filled with a huge amount of API calls, and I have no way to tell what is in use and what is not without forcing errors by making the calls fail (so the data looks wrong and generates an issue)
Lots of IDE’s (if you’re from a software background) will show you dependencies on classes, variables etc. As bubble is posing itself as a no-code IDE for web apps, I feel like this would be immensely helpful in both debugging and refactoring. As Bubble apps get older (into the 10 year mark) the need for this functionality is going to become rather large.
Let me know what you guys think!
