Streamlining Software Development with 3 Essential SDK’s: Tripetto,, and Stripe

In the fast-paced world of software development, efficiency is key. In this article we’ll dive into 3 SDK’s that can help to accelerate the development process: Tripetto, and Stripe.

Our modern world is dominated by technology. The digitalization has found its way in any aspect of our lives. Think of digital applications in health, financial and educational organizations. For almost every subject in those branches, you can say ”There’s an app for that!”.

Of course, there are downsides to that digitalization: one of the most heard cons is that it takes away the real personal interactions between humans. For some situations you just need some human personal touch. But on the other hand, the benefits of all those digital interactions are overwhelming. You have the whole world under your finger and can arrange pretty much everything online, which is great for efficiency.

An aspect that end-users never think of (and should not) is that all those apps and online environments must be developed, of course. Let’s dive into that development process and how that can be streamlined nowadays.

Streamlining application development

Programming languages and tools have improved massively over the years, making it way easier to build apps, websites and any other online tool. Although each project is unique, there always are some key core elements that come back in each project: think of design, navigation, user interaction, forms, and media. And if you sell something via your application, such core elements can be extended with checkout, payment handling, and account management.

Regardless of the application, such core elements have a lot in common. For example, forms are used in almost any application and always have the same goal: let the user input any kind of data and store that somewhere. Also, the user interaction for such forms is mostly the same for all apps. That way the user knows what to expect and doesn’t have to go through a learning curve in each new application they use.

Because of those similarities it would be inefficient for developers to develop such components from the ground up for each application they build. Why reinvent the wheel if it’s already there? And that’s where so-called Software Development Kits (SDK’s) come into play.

Using Software Development Kits

Software Development Kits are components that every developer can use to quickly implement a certain feature they need in their application. Such SDK’s are often built and maintained by parties that are specialized in that area. If we stay with the example of forms: it is likely that you would rather prefer to implement a form component built by a specialized form expert. That way you can assume that they already have developed and finetuned the form designs, interactions and techniques and thus their quality is up to par.

Especially when you think of modern form flows, where logic is often required. With such logic flows you make your forms smart by using the given answers to determine which follow-up questions should be asked. To develop forms with such conditional logic from scratch, would be a project on its own. Then why would you develop this all from scratch when there is a Form SDK developed by form experts that you can use instantly in your application?

Benefits of SDK’s

The benefits depend a bit on the SDK that you need, but in general these are the benefits of using SDK’s as a developer:

  • High quality features – SDK’s are developed by experts on that specific software area, so you can expect the best features;
  • High quality code – SDK’s are built and maintained by top-notch developers, so the quality of the code is very high;
  • Time-efficient – SDK’s include advanced features, which would take very much time to develop on your own;
  • Updates and bugfixes – SDK’s often come with updates and bugfixes, so you don’t have to worry about those;
  • Customizable – On top of the core features of SDK’s, they are often very customizable to tailor them to your own application, while maintaining the powerful core of the SDK;
  • Extendable – Besides customization, you can often also develop on top of the SDK’s core, making it extendable for your own needs;
  • Documented – SDK’s are usually well documented to make implementation as easy as possible.

3 Examples of SDK’s

To give a better understanding of such SDK’s we’d like to give 3 examples:

  • Tripetto FormBuilder SDK for implementing a full form solution;
  • for implementing media processing for photo and video content;
  • Stripe for implementing checkout and payment processing.

1. Tripetto: Form Building Simplified

Forms are a fundamental part of many applications, from contact forms to surveys and registration forms. Developers often spend a significant amount of time writing complex code for forms, especially when those forms also need conditional logic. And on top of that it takes a lot of effort to make the forms fit into your application. Users are used to highly interactive forms, with clear inputs, attractive layout and smooth interaction.

Tripetto's FormBuilder SDK includes all of this in a couple of easy-to-use components. Besides the form front end, it also includes a form builder back end. This way you can also integrate a form builder right into your application, so your users can create forms and surveys from within the same application. In total the FormBuilder SDK contains 3 components:

  • Form builder – The form builder lets you build form structures and logic flows. With the unique drag-and-drop interface you build forms like a storyboard, making it very clear what the different paths in your form are.
  • Form runners – This is where the form that you built in the form builder gets converted into a fully operating form, including all form logic and response collection. The best part is you can show your form in 3 different form layouts:
    • Autoscroll - Fluently presents one question at a time.
    • Chat - Presents all questions and answers as a chat.
    • Classic - Presents question fields in a traditional format.
  • Form blocks - Blocks make up the forms created in the builder and executed by the runner. The SDK comes with a variety of question types that can be used right away. Or you can even build your own custom blocks.

To develop this all from the ground up would take significant development resources, time and money. But since this is an SDK, developers can now include any and all desired features in minutes! The FormBuilder SDK can be used in all modern frameworks like React, Angular and plain JavaScript. It’s extensively documented, so implementation will be easy.

2. Elevate Media Processing

Media plays a vital role in modern applications, enhancing user engagement and overall appeal.'s SDK simplifies media processing, allowing developers to integrate advanced image and video editing capabilities effortlessly. Whether you need to add filters, overlays, or crop and resize images, offers an array of tools to make your application stand out.

But although media editing seems easy, there’s a lot going on in the background, which would be an extremely complicated project to build on your own. By leveraging's SDK, developers can eliminate the need to build media processing features from scratch, saving substantial development hours. This time can be reallocated to refining your own application's core functionality, ultimately speeding up your project's time to market, and possibly quality.

3. Stripe: Payment Processing Made Easy

For applications requiring e-commerce or subscription-based services, handling payments is a critical aspect. Stripe's SDK simplifies payment processing, providing a comprehensive solution for both one-time transactions and subscription models. With Stripe, you can securely handle various payment methods, including credit cards and digital wallets.

You can imagine that although you pay online everywhere these days, it takes a lot to develop a payment pipeline on your own. Stripe's SDK takes care of the intricacies of payment processing, from PCI compliance to fraud prevention, giving developers more time to concentrate on enhancing the user experience and other core functionalities of the application. This not only saves time but also ensures a seamless payment experience for end-users.


In conclusion, the use of SDK’s significantly reduces development time and allows developers to focus on building exceptional applications. Besides that, SDK’s often offer more quality than building everything from the ground up.

We have seen 3 areas in which SDK’s can help developers: Tripetto’s FormBuilder SDK for advanced forms, for media processing, and Stripe for payment handling. By leveraging these SDKs, you can accelerate your project timelines, improve efficiency, and ensure that your applications are both feature-rich and user-friendly. So, if you're looking to save time and resources in your development journey, consider incorporating these essential SDKs into your toolkit.

If you're interested in Tripetto's FormBuilder SDK, you're at the right address. Testing the FormBuilder SDK for implementation is totally free. Once you’re ready to deploy it to a production environment an SDK license is required in most (not all) cases. You can determine license requirements and pricing via our license request wizard. If you have any questions, please reach out to us via a live chat or schedule a call with us. We’re happy to answer any of your questions and go over your project right away to determine the license.
