As of yesterday, December 4, 2017, Wix Code has been released to the Wix editor, so now all Wix websites can benefit from the added functionality to work at the code level on any Wix website. This changes the game at Wix – which in my opinion is the best website editing platform on the market – because it combines the easy what-you-see-is-what-you-get Wix Website Editor with a deeper level of code. The sky is the limit!
Wix Code allows web application creation, databases functionality, APIs to connect with outside services, and the ability to expose the web application as an API. Basically, this means that we can now do nearly anything with Wix. We can set up database driven websites with member areas, and then allow clients to easily edit their websites using the editor (the Wix Code level can be hidden or visible).

Wix Code also is a prompting coder, which means you don't really need to write code, you can select from intuitive code features that you insert and put together. There are also lots of tutorials on YouTube on how to setup different functionality with Wix Code so you can learn the ropes!
Here are some pages from Wix themselves to explain a little more about Wix Code and what it can do:
Wix Code Features:
You can store and manage data now on your Wix website, displaying it where you need it, or collecting and storing information as desired.
Dynamic Pages: wix.com/code/home/dynamic-pages
You can now setup a design style that applies to 100s of pages so you don't have to manually design each page. Basically, this means we can setup templates for our Wix website design customers.
User Input: wix.com/code/home/user-input
Ability to collect user info, and build things like review forms, quizzes, etc. You can even design multi-page forms with Wix Code.
Wix Code APIs: wix.com/code/home/api
Repeating Layouts: wix.com/code/home/repeaters
This lets you setup theme or template pages in Wix using grid layouts, and then tie the pages and content into databases.
