Welcome to the course
In this lesson, you will get to know me and the requirements of the course.
My Glide account
In this lesson, we will set up our first account on Glide's website. Notice that it is all in the English language. The process is straightforward, it is essential to note that in all these courses, you are not required to pay Glide; in other words, there is no need to upgrade a paid subscription to successfully finish this course.
Glide Templates store
In this lesson, we will learn one of Glide's shortcuts for getting our app which is templates. There are many templates in the Glide store which you can get for free or purchase. After purchasing them you will be able to edit them as you like, adding futures and much more. In this lesson, I will also explain the difference between the two Glide products which are Apps and Pages.
Glide Pricing
There are in total 5 different plans: Free Starter - 25$ per month Pro - 99$ per month Business - 249$ per month Enterprise - Custom The different pricing is mainly on limitations of different usage of the platform. Projects Apps and Pages
Building the app

First steps for our first Glide app
In this lesson, we will learn how to set up a completely new project with no need for a pre-prepared database. Glide does the work for us and gives us a basic pattern that we can edit, change and add components to it. In this lesson, we will see how to delete all the information that is irrelevant to us and start from scratch. No programming or previous knowledge is required! Let's go (:
Setting inside a Glide project
In this lesson, we will learn all the possibilities that a free plan on Glide can give us. There are many of them, and this lesson might be a bit long but it is very important to understand all the futures that we have and how can we use them.
Arrange the database
In this lesson, we will prepare as much as possible our database, the "under the hood" functionality. Glide already has many different functions, and we don't need to create any new ones. I will show some of the most used functions there are there, but as Glide adds more and more functions of them, you will need to learn yourself by testing and experiencing them.
User profile, main page and public chat
In this lesson, we will start touching the construction screen. We will learn how to set up new pages, add components and navigate the construction screen in general. The user experience is the heart of the app, so it is very important to make it easier for our users even if it is ourselves. To do this, use as clear words as possible, and lower the user's clicks as much as possible.
Adding new items
So how can we add new items to our app, or better yet, let our users add new items? Well, in Glide, there are two ways to do that. One way is by a + sign in a list format and the other is by a button in a "details screen" format. I will show you both (:
Personalized actions
So now we have reached complex Galid capabilities, which are customized actions. Such actions can be produced for any component that we have the option of adding "action" like a picture, buttons, and lists. Understanding complex actions can make your app incredible!
UI & UX for inline list
When we build an app one of our goals is to make our user's life easy. So how can we reduce their time and effort? Counting items can be exhausting and confusing when it comes to high numbers, so why not do this process for automatic? In this lesson, I will show you how you can make Glide count items under the same category.
Finishing our app
Navigation In this lesson, we will learn how to produce accessible and convenient navigation without the need for "back" which will allow the user to constantly move forward. One of the factors of users getting bored or not using any platform is bad navigation. We want to produce a situation where our user is constantly moving forward, continually having another button to drive and another world he can discover. Progress bar When we have any destination that depends on numbers, such as tasks, sales, and more, we often want to know where we are standing and how much more is left. A progress bar is one of my favorite components and can be used for many needs. Personal area for users When it comes to an app with multiple users, it is essential to give them a personal area. One that they can collect their information in one place with easy access. In addition, if it is a social app or "social network", we want to give other users to watch their information just like Facebook or any other platform. Posting the app Mazel Tov! This is the last lesson for the course, it's time for us to post the app and start using it. Also, you can find a link to copy the app to your account when you can compare what you built compared to what I built so you can make sure you did everything right. I wish you a lot of success down the road, and you are invited to follow the social networks for other updates on Glide.
