Why is Blox so complicated?

Hi there,

I think Blox is a great add-on to create customized and beautiful dashboards.
But I need to leave out my frustration about Blox.

From the perspective of user-friendliness, Blox is not really intuitive. No, it feels like is built to be the total opposite of an easy to use UI.

And I wonder, why there are no templates that are shared in the communitiy. I would love to share my templates if I would be able to create them.

Does Sisense plan to create a "what you see is what you get" editor for Blox?

I agree that BloX often doesn't feel as low-code as it's touted to be, especially since anything that goes away from the default c/p snippets seems to require (not always well-documented) CSS knowledge, or even JS scripting after all.

Then the JSON format of the layout almost feels like learning *another* way of coding, rather than a low-code way of writing down what a widget should look like/do

Hi @Wantti, one of our solutions engineers recently shared this post.  You may find it helpful while working with BloX.
