Genie Builder Extension
Genie Builder is a free VSCode plugin that helps you build interactive GUIs for your Genie/Julia apps with no-code. Combine UI elements such as text, sliders, data tables and plots with a drag & drop interface. Create dashboards and data apps without worrying about the front-end.
