GrapesJS: an Outstanding Open-source Web Visual Builder

What is GrapesJS?

GrapesJS is an open-source, multipurpose, Web Builder Framework which combines different tools and features with the goal to help you (or users of your application) to build HTML templates without any knowledge of coding.

GrapesJS was designed primarily for use inside Content Management Systems to speed up the creation of dynamic templates and replace common WYSIWYG editors, which are good for content editing, but inappropriate for creating HTML structures. Instead of creating an application we decided to create an extensible framework that could be used by anyone for any purpose. (src)
