Announcing streamlined Visual editor setup in Netlify

Cross-functional collaboration is essential for building exceptional digital experiences. However, without efficient workflows, these collaborations can lead to bottlenecks. Today, we’re excited to announce the full integration of Stackbit within Netlify. This powerful combination delivers a seamless visual editing experience for sites built and deployed on Netlify, empowering content creators to take control.

Benefits of the Visual Editor within Netlify

The visual editor allows users to make changes to their website's content and layout through a user-friendly interface, without needing to write code. This empowers non-developers to update and manage their sites effortlessly, speeding up workflows and reducing reliance on technical teams.

Netlify’s visual editor unblocks the marketer-developer workflow, enabling faster and more frequent campaign launches. This empowers developers to focus on shipping code, making your team more impactful than ever.

Some of the benefits of the visual editor include

  • Faster time-to-market: Optimized web processes ensure seamless delivery of your web team's projects.
  • Autonomous website updates: Empower non-developers to perform website updates independently to eliminate the ticket vortex between marketers and developers.
