Open Source Webflow alternative launching Beta on Product Hunt ๐Ÿš€

No platform lock-in, designer-oriented UX, unbridled creativity, and extreme performance- at Webstudio, we are committed to providing it all. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

Hey NoCodeDevs,

Iโ€™m Oleg, founder of Webstudio. My team and I are super thrilled to launch Webstudio Beta, the open-source Webflow alternative that will enable designers to create sites they love with the features that they deserve.๐Ÿ™Œโœจ

We have been building this solution since mid-2022, and with this launch on Product Hunt, we are finally ready to unveil it. We would appreciate your support on Product Hunt!

๐Ÿงฎ The Webstudio Experience

With Webstudio, you can directly interact with HTML & CSS to build more creative and capable websites. Whether it is for a simple landing page or an entire web app, we want Webstudio to be your canvas. Our core vision is to give limitless powers to web designers and visual developers, and we are building forward with that mindset.

No platform lock-in, designer-oriented UX, unbridled creativity, and extreme performance- at Webstudio, we are committed to providing it all. ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

๐Ÿงฎ What sets Webstudio apart

We have designed our core architecture with these priorities in mind:

๐Ÿกย Community-first approach to development: Got some ideas for improvement? Share them directly with our core team!

๐Ÿงฉย Ownership and Privacy: No Google tracking by default and free GDPR-compliance hosting with the option to self-host. You own what you build, whether it is your site or your data.

โšก๏ธ Performance: Got a need for speed? At Webstudio, you will get WebP-optimized images, a workers-based cloud, and super efficient rendering thanks to Remix.

๐Ÿช„ย Design Tokens- yep, no more classes-related headaches.

๐Ÿ’ฐ Pricing- You can build a production site or experiment for free inside Webstudio. We only monetize high-traffic sites and the advanced capabilities that are primarily used for client work.

And thatโ€™s not all! Here are some other upgrades that we are working on and will be making public this year:

๐ŸŽฏย Real-time Collaboration: With this upgrade, multiple designers and visual developers will be able to collaborate in real-time on Webstudio at no extra charge, just like in Figma!

๐Ÿ’ป Backend Versatility- no more limits to what CMSs and databases you can use. You will use CMSs like WordPress, Sanity, Airtable, or Notion as if they were built in, even though they are separate UIs!

๐Ÿ”—ย Native Extensibility - You get to add features as if they were built into the platform through React components and plugins.

And last but not least โ€“ itโ€™s all open-source. ๐Ÿ’š

๐Ÿงฎ Whatโ€™s coming next

The Beta Version is only the beginning- the static site builder that is not so static technically. With these upcoming features, you will soon witness the full power of the architecture:

๐Ÿ“Œ AI Integration

๐Ÿ“Œ Figma Tokens Sync

๐Ÿ“Œ UI Kits

๐Ÿ“Œ CMSs and Databases

๐Ÿ“Œ Versioning

๐Ÿ“Œ Real-Time Collaboration

๐Ÿ“Œ Interactions and Animations

โ€ฆ and a lot more. Stay tuned!
