We are back with yet another major announcement.
This time, it has to do with the entire website page-building experience. And if you enjoy working with the default WordPress block editor, Gutenberg, you will love this update.
Introducing, Spectra 2.0.
With this latest release, you can build ultra-high-performance websites without coding.
We’ve been working on Spectra at Brainstorm Force for over a year.
We even had several WordPress enthusiasts test Spectra out when we released the beta version earlier this year.
A world-class product that takes the website page-building experience to a new level.
Today, we are super excited to share the release of Spectra 2.0 with you.
Let’s dive in and explore what’s new with Spectra 2.0.
What is Spectra?
Spectra is a visual page builder built on top of the default block editor, Gutenberg.
With Spectra, you can build ultra-fast websites, even if you are a complete beginner. And the good news is that Spectra works perfectly well with all WordPress themes.
Typically, you have page builders that either output poorly written code, hampers the website performance, or are complicated for beginners and involve a substantial learning curve.
That apart, page builders are seen to have compatibility issues with other third-party themes and plugins.
So, we built Spectra!
Now build high-performance websites using a beginner-friendly page builder quickly and easily.
What’s new in Spectra?
Our goal with Spectra was to bring out a product with everything you need to build excellent websites coupled with the best user experience.
So, while we added new features to Spectra, we also updated the old ones to come out with a world-class visual page builder.
Here are some of Spectra’s awesome features
Build ultra fast websites using our visual website builder
With Spectra, building websites just got a whole lot easier.
To begin with, we’ve done away with rows and columns. It’s so old school.
Instead, we now use Flexbox Containers.
A Flexbox Container utilizes flexible containers to solve all your web design problems.
Spectra takes this a step further.
Want to change the direction of elements in a container? Maybe justify the content or even customize the alignment? With Spectra Flexboxes, you are entirely covered.
From aligning the various container elements to match your design needs
and controlling the width and height of the container
to displaying important feature lists
and building custom tables efficiently,
the design possibilities are endless with Spectra.
All while keeping the layout fluid and responsive for all devices.
Another significant inclusion is Presets.
With Presets, you get a jumpstart on your website design.
Customize the pre-designed blocks to suit your website requirements.
Want to replicate designs and save time easily?
You know those times when you’ve entirely customized a block and want to replicate the same in another block?
Well, you can now use Spectra’s Copy and Paste Style feature.
Using this feature, you can easily maintain consistency across your website and save a lot of design time.
You will never have to design websites from scratch again
Our ever-growing library of 100+ FREE professionally designed starter templates is built using the default WordPress block editor, Astra, and Spectra.
Simply import a page, section, or even an entire website template in just a few clicks. Customize the content and deliver projects faster than ever.
And the best part is that you have a website template for just about any niche.
Prefer using Block Patterns? You know, those pre-built blocks you use for particular sections within your web pages, such as a hero section, features, clients, testimonials, locations, address, statistics, and single quotes, among several others.
Spectra has you covered with a full range of pre-built Block Patterns that you can easily import, customize and use on your pages.
Prefer Wireframes to Blocks? No problem. Spectra has you covered there as well.
These FREE pre-built Wireframe Patterns are designed using Spectra and can be imported in just a few clicks.
