New Open-Source Sitebuilder Snaplive Reaches Pre-Alpha, Sneak Peek Available

Share Article

Italian developer Niccolò Brogi published a sneak peek preview of his latest project, a new open source sitebuilder called Snaplive.

After 4 months of development, sitebuilder Snaplive is stable enough to be tried out by interested developers/enthusiasts.

Anyone can try out the sitebuilder by signing in with a Twitter account. After signing in you will get a brand-new website to play with. The application has been tested on Google Chrome on Mac, which is therefore the only browser supported at this time.

Snaplive is still being developed. It is 2-3 months away from a beta release. However, you can still create a bare-bone website to see how the finished product might look and feel like (Snaplive’s developer blog has famously been written on Snaplive itself since the first post).

About Snaplive
Snaplive is a new-generation website builder, developed by Italian web developer Niccolò Brogi.

Once stable, it will be open sourced, released under the very permissive MIT license, and available for free on

A hosted version will be available on for a fee.

The application has been developed with the following goals in mind:

  • all features should be mobile first—interface, themes and editing should work flawlessly on tablets/smartphones as well as desktops
  • designers who know HTML/CSS, but not PHP/databases, should be able to turn any template into a Snaplive-powered website
  • it should be super-easy for developers to create components and for users to install them
