Engineered for performance
Packed as a super small (<150kb gzipped) WordPress plugin, LiveCanvas will allow you to build great web pages that effectively communicate your message while keeping low weight. No extra CSS or JS bloat added. Just pure Bootstrap4.
Empowering you to be really responsive
Fulfilling the responsive promise means being able to effectively deliver your message to your audience, through any kind of device. LiveCanvas allows you to visually check what's happening on each breakpoint with ease, while you are working on your project. Build things right from the start instead of correcting countless glitches afterwards.
Use standard blocks or build your own
LiveCanvas helps you build great web pages visually combining HTML snippets that we call "blocks". It allows you to get started immediately using readymade blocks, or building your custom ones. No limit to your creativity!

Frequently Asked Questions
Doubts, questions or funny issues? please read here or reach our sales team.
Can I use LiveCanvas to create websites for clients?
Absolutely yes! You can use LiveCanvas on websites you build for clients - and they do not need to buy their own license.
How does it work? Why is it so fast?
The idea behind LiveCanvas is to minimize bloat, saving plain HTML inside the post_content field. This results in zero customer lock-in, and in extreme speed. You won't need caching plugins to make you homepage load at blazing speeds.
Which themes can I run LiveCanvas on?
Basically on every Bootstrap 4-based theme - but we recommend using it with UnderStrap - a very clean open source foundation, or even better with our custom child theme, CustomStrap - which adds some spice while keeping bloat at zero. You can find a more detailed answer in this blog post.
Can I integrate LiveCanvas with extra plugins?
Of course. You can place any shortcode inside LiveCanvas pages.
Does LiveCanvas add JS or CSS to my site?
Zero. Not at all. No extra CSS or JS file is added to your site. No inline style or script.
The main philosophy behind LiveCanvas is to help build extremely DRY sites.
Can LiveCanvas work with Gutenberg?
The LiveCanvas editor can be selectively enabled on pages / posts / custom post types - leaving the work to Gutenberg, or the Classic editor, where it's not enabled.
Can I turn off the LiveCanvas plugin after building the site?
While most page builders lock you in their proprietary systems, LiveCanvas talks pure HTML - so the basic answer is YES, you can do that - But we feel it makes very little sense, as the LiveCanvas plugin does not slow your site in any way.
Can I export a page built with LiveCanvas outside WordPress?
Yes. An option allows to download the page content, surrounded by the standard Bootstrap 4 template - the one recommended in the Bootstrap documentation - so if you're not using dynamic shortcodes or advanced features, you can export a simple landing page in one click, in a simple, independent HTML file.
What happens if I don't renew my plan after one year? Will my sites work?
Yes, 100%. Having an active membership is only necessary to download plugin updates.
Do you offer a Demo version?
We offer a full 30-Day Money Back Guarantee, so you can try LiveCanvas without risk.
