GrapesJS is a free and open source Web Builder Framework which helps building HTML templates, faster and easily, to be delivered in sites, newsletters or mobile apps. Mainly, GrapesJS was designed to be used inside a CMS to speed up the creation of dynamic templates. To better understand this concept check the image below

GrapesJS - Style Manager

Generally any 'template system', that you'd find in various applications like CMS, is composed by the structure (HTML), style (CSS) and variables, which are then replaced with other templates and contents on server-side and rendered on client.

This demos show examples of what is possible to achieve: Webpage Demo - http://grapesjs.com/demo.html Newsletter Demo - http://grapesjs.com/demo-newsletter-editor.html

  • NPM
    • npm i grapesjs
  • GIT
    • git clone https://github.com/artf/grapesjs.git

For the development purpose you should follow instructions below.


<link rel="stylesheet" href="path/to/grapes.min.css">
<script src="path/to/grapes.min.js"></script>

<div id="gjs"></div>

<script type="text/javascript">
  var editor = grapesjs.init({
      container : '#gjs',
      components: '<div class="txt-red">Hello world!</div>',
      style: '.txt-red{color: red}',

You could also grab the content directly from the element with fromElement property

<div id="gjs">
  <div class="txt-red">Hello world!</div>
  <style>.txt-red{color: red}</style>

<script type="text/javascript">
  var editor = grapesjs.init({
      container : '#gjs',
      fromElement: true,

For more practical example I suggest to look up the code inside this demo: http://grapesjs.com/demo.html
