Web Design like playing with blocks...

Template Blocks is a visual template engine, replacing any semantics of previous generation engines with an AJAX interface.

It's written in PHP and is distributed under the GPL.

  • Visual Interface

    On a basic level of use, Template blocks does not require any files edited manually. Simply upload and run the setup on your browser. Everything is handled through online forms viewed on a web browser.
  • Good for all

    Novice programmers will appreciate the fact that they don't need to write one line of code to compile their template, while experienced coders won't find limits in using their skills.
  • Online/Offline use

    Although the engine can be used to present the template of an online website it can also be used offline as a middleware tool just to help you create your templates easier for use anywhere else...
