Frontend DX

Websites depend on frontend code; thus, the frontend development experience must give possibilities for efficient work. Enhancing a website should be easy (and fun).

  • Prebuilt theme with full code access: To save time for smaller projects or to get started.
  • The software comes with a built-in code editor. 
  • Frontend themes are edited using HTML, CSS and JavaScript with liquid for contextual information. Add in the JS framework you wish. 
  • The front end is compiled with server-side rendering; you could even build a no-JS site.

Built-in code editor

Worth noting is that it is possible to reach the theme and frontend code through the API and thus develop locally in the preferred editor and with frameworks such as React that require a build step. 

  • Syntax highlighting
  • Error checking and reporting
  • Supports dark mode

Self-hosting and GDPR

Why use boring technology

We believe that boring technology can often be the most effective and efficient choice for software development leading to more focus on innovation and growth.
