Built For Developers

Blux was built with developers in mind from the very start. Custom coding, fast site delivery, data integration, an API, and more, all available in one amazing platform.

JUST HTML, CSS & JavaScript

No server-side code to learn. No databases. No servers to manage. No frameworks to learn. The Custom Elements feature is a simple web-component-like system that allows you to combine HTML, CSS and JavaScript to extend your site as far as you need.

Optimal Developer Workflow

Blux enables a simple no-server/no-frameworks developer workflow for customizing sites. Just simple HTML, CSS and JavaScript is all that's needed. This makes it easy to find development resources who can quickly jump in and help you implement your vision for your site. This simple approach to development means that many designers and web master's who know "just a little" code can also be quite effective with Blux!
Since all of the code for your site is managed within Blux you can easily include or change developers at any time with very little technical knowledge. Simply grant access or remove access to anyone you wish to help you build your site.

SCREAMING Fast Static Sites

Having a fast website is one of the best ways to provide a great user experience and increase conversions on any device. Blux continuously researches and implements the best practices for great websites on all relevant devices and provides these benefits to your sites.

Amazon Cloud Hosting

Blux is built on top of Amazon Web Services, using EC2, S3 and CloudFront, ensuring fast website delivery anywhere in the world.

Inlined Code

Blux automatically inlines JavaScript and CSS for each page individually. This makes a visitor's first visit to your site very fast and helps improve the performance of rendering each page.

Code Minification

Lengthy code can slow down your site on mobile devices. Blux automatically minifies HTML, JavaScript, and CSS, reducing load time and providing a great user experience for your visitors.

Asynchronous Loading

To reduce page load, everything that can be and should be asynchronous is loaded simultaneously for efficient content delivery.

Responsive Images

All images are automatically optimized and delivered at the proper width for the specific devices and pixel density, including retina displays. JPEG's are reduced with jpegtran, PNG's with optipng and pngquant, and GIF's use gifsicle.

Efficient Image Delivery

Image positions use responsive aspect ratio aware placeholders to optionally animate/fade in once fully downloaded. This helps ensure less reflow/repaint operations by web browsers and generally improves the site experience.

POWERFUL Feeds FOR Data Integration

Sites built on Blux are static and fast but the ability to load in data dynamically a custom Feeds system is available. Blux Feeds work using a simple JSON API to dynamically load in data from other sites such as social networks, websites, blogs, Google Docs, and many other sources. You can also use the Feeds system to dynamically load your content from an external source such as WordPress, RSS or any CMS system. 

You can think of Feeds as your static site JSON API to be able to achieve any custom feature you need for your site.
