Genie Builder 1.0 FAQs

Answering your questions on availability, pricing, and more.

Following the announcement of Genie Builder 1.0, we've received numerous inquiries. Below, we address many of these questions and will continue to update this page with new information.


Can I build highly customized UIs with Genie Builder?

You most definitely can! We support 35 web UI components at the moment and we’ll keep on adding more. Check out our component gallery to see if there’s everything you need. If you want to use custom components, you can add them by editing the code of your app. Check this guide to learn how.

What libraries does Genie Builder use for data visualization?

We use PlotlyJS, which gives you access to 40+ charts including statistical, financial, scientific charts, maps and 3D visualizations. You can also integrate 3rd party Javascript libraries by following this guide.

How can I style my app?

You can use the styling menu or the AI Assistant in Genie Builder, but if you prefer to use CSS that’s possible too. In a Genie app you can use inline CSS style attributes or define your own stylesheets in the public/ folder and import them. You can also use the popular Tailwind CSS framework to style your Genie app. Learn more in this styling guide.

How can I use the AI Assistant?
  • UI editing: select a component, and ask AI to edit it or style it.
  • Help: ask AI how to do something, and you’ll get ad-hoc documentation and code snippets.

When is Genie Builder 1.0 going to be available to the public?

General availability is expected for early April 2024.

Is Genie Builder 1.0 only available on JuliaHub?

No. JuliaHub allows you to work with a hosted version of Genie Builder, on a pre-configured VSCode environment that just works, and also offers you the ability to deploy your apps easily, in one-click.

However, if you prefer to use Genie Builder on your machine and deploy your apps elsewhere, we offer a local version for an annual license fee. Fill in this form, and we’ll get back to you with a quote.

Additionally, if you’re interested in an on-prem solution that lets you build and deploy Genie apps in one-click on your infrastructure, we can build it for you. Contact us for more info.

Do I need a JuliaHub account to use Genie Builder even if I’m not deploying my app there?

If you want to use Genie Builder on JuliaHub, yes. If you’re an individual user, you’ll have to create a free standard account on JuliaHub. The first 10 hours using Genie Builder are free, then you’ll be charged by usage. Once you’re done building your app, you can download it and deploy it elsewhere.

Otherwise, you can purchase a local license. Fill in this form, and we’ll get back to you with a quote.

Can I develop more than one Genie app at a time?

Yes, you can build unlimited apps!

Will there be a working example so I could get a fast start with Genie Builder?

Absolutely. We actually provide a few demo apps to help you get started. Take a look at our app gallery.


How much does Genie Builder 1.0 cost?

On JuliaHub, individual users get the first 10 hours free, then are charged $0.99/hr with a cap of max $50/month. This price includes the Genie Builder license and JuliaHub’s infrastructure costs (default machine). For teams and enterprises, we offer a seat-based annual subscription. Contact us for more info.

For the local version, pricing depends on the number of users, limited vs unlimited usage of the AI assistant, need for personalized onboarding and direct technical support or development services. Fill in this form, and we’ll get back to you with a quote.
