San Francisco-based Webflow thinks it can change this. The company recently launched what it calls the “world’s first visual CMS.” The goal is to offer a content management system that doesn’t require any code or look like it was beaten with the ugly stick.
Webflow, the leader in professional visual web development tools, today announced the launch of Webflow CMS, the first visual content management system (CMS) for web designers. Webflow CMS gives web designers the power of web developers, so they can handle every stage of the once-complex web development process by themselves.
Web design tools like Webflow have done a lot to thin the line between designers and developers. Now, however, the birthed-by-Y-Combinator startup wants to take it further with what it describes as the world's first visual content management system (CMS).
In 2012, brothers Sergie and Vlad Magdalin started Webflow as a way to empower designers to create custom websites without learning how to code.
Webflow, the Y Combinator and FundersClub-backed startup aimed at making it easier for creative professionals to visually design and host their own responsive websites, has raised $1.5 million in seed funding. The round includes participation from Khosla Ventures, Tim Draper, various angels, and Y Combinator.
Responsive web design platform Webflow is preparing to launch out of sealed beta with some 10,000 users already on-board and more than 8,700 websites to its name. The Y Combinator backed startup was founded in 2012 by brothers Vlad and Sergie Magdalin alongside CTO/"server surfer" Bryant Chou.
Webflow, a Y Combinator-backed startup offering creative professionals an easier, more visual way to design and host responsive websites, is launching out of its closed beta, with already some 10,000 users signed up. It’s an idea whose time has come, as more of the world now interacts with the web through a variety of devices and screen sizes, including desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones – the latter two of which can also be turned and viewed in either portrait or landscape modes.
Webflow is a fascinating tool for would-be web/mobile designer/developers. It lets you create beautiful, responsively designed websites in a simple user interface, then it exports production-ready CSS and HTML code.
