The editor is the core of the BRYTER Platform where tools and applications (“modules”) are built and maintained. The editor allows you to create the business logic and processes of your application in a no-code, visual graph builder. The editor allows the choice of a great variety of different building blocks (“nodes”, “actions”, and "values") and components to build a module. The different building blocks can be assembled to build all sorts of different applications with different input and output sources, workflows, and processes. The drag and drop interface can be used to support even the most complex logic and to build complex routes through your application. Follow this article to fully understand all components of the BRYTER platform.
