The Buzzy plugin has been updated since the videos were recorded. These changes do not change the basic principles and concepts outlined in the videos, but you will notice the following:

  • BRIEF: This tab is used only if generating a new app from scratch using Buzzy AI

  • DATA MODEL: Previously DATA, this is where you define your app's data model

  • MARKUP: Previously DESIGN, this is where you link your Figma design to functionality, roles, data and behaviour

  • PUBLISH: This is where you publish your app to a server for previewing and deployment
