The contemporary web gives you the ability to choose from a number of the drag-and-drop page builders, so we will compare the Novi Builder features to the major competitors in a subsequent publication. Today, we'll start with the story of the brand establishment.


Novi Builder Background...

The idea to create an intuitive drag-and-drop page builder appeared at the end of 2016. The Novi team started off by investigating the trends in the contemporary market and learning the preferences of the web users. The demand for the visual page editors started to grow in 2016.  It sounded alluring to the webmasters and the end users alike to have the ability to create versatile layouts while simply dragging and dropping different design elements. So, the idea to create an intuitive HTML builder seemed to be promising indeed.

It took the team 4 months to create the first stable release of the builder, which is now available for the public download.

The market keeps on changing and developing all the time. So, in February 2017, the Novi team had to make a major decision to rethink and revamp the strategy of the builder development and the functionality that it contained.

On September 14, 2017, the first stable release of the builder saw the light of the day. Sure, Novi Builder continues to receive updates and enhancements.


Project Philosophy

Novi Builder is the B2B/B2C online platform.

It serves as a connection between the end-user and the business, providing the former with a range of services connected with the development, customization, and support of HTML websites. Businesses, in their turn, get a range of tools for the realization of the requests from the end-users.

Novi Builder

  • B2C refers to the end-users who purchase website templates or already run their web resources. Using Novi Builder, they can import their existing websites (independently or while ordering the respective service) and tweak the pages effortlessly, in the visual mode.
  • B2B refers to the clients who create templates and provide web development email marketing services.

Why Is Novi Builder Your Best Choice?

Buying Novi Builder, you receive a powerful tool, with the help of which you can:

  • import any HTML theme into the builder;
  • edit content with the help of the visual editor;
  • copy/clone/remove/insert/replace any element of your design;
  • create new blocks using the pre-designed elements with a few clicks only, and use them throughout the theme;
  • create your own media library and use the uploaded photo and video content in different sections of the theme's layout;
  • experience the ease of editing texts, URLs, backgrounds (images, colors, gradients);
  • choose from a collection of Google fonts;
  • upload icons or use the ones that are preloaded in the theme;
  • use Novi IDE code editor to tweak HTML/CSS/JS code;
  • with the help of the plugin included in the Novi Builder, a client can edit slides, carousels, parallax, Google maps, contact forms, and other script-based elements in the visual mode.

In addition, Novi Builder includes the auto updater, which guarantees that the client will always work with the latest version of the drag-and-drop HTML builder. Whenever you need to install third-party JS plugins or widgets, you may be certain that the Builder will support any of them properly.
