Velo is a brand new Wix full-stack development platform. This essentially allows you to add custom code to your website. Also, you can create and add a more advanced feature to make your website.
In this blog, I will guide you on how you can use Velo by Wix to build pretty much anything you can imagine, whether it be an eCommerce website, a SaaS platform, social networking site, etc. To use Velo, all you have to do is go to Wix's regular editor, enable Velo, and you are ready to start. Moreover, you can also integrate your website or app with third-party services. You can even import many popular NPM modules (e.g., elastic search, Mongo DB) into your website.
Here, we have the following features: Databases, Coding, Business, and marketing, which Velo by Wix allows users to build anything they want.
With the databases, you can create dynamic sites and collaborate on content with the team and client, all within the content manager.
Suppose you wanted to add some different animations or additional features to your website that you can't do regularly with your standard Wix editor. In that case, you could implement some custom code as well. If you know the front end or backend or check out their documentation, see how to set the thing up. You can use this feature to go in there and add custom code to your site.
If you are doing business, you can have include a Wix store, create booking functionalities, CRMS, blogs, and Wix Pay API for payments.
In the marketing section, Velo provides marketing tools and integration, SEO, and analytics. It also offers specific marketing things such as creating heat maps. However, there are a lot more features that you can use to implement and improve your website.
These are the following steps you need to follow to understand the basic structure of building with Velo.
First of all, sign in to your Wix account or sign up if you don't already have one. Then, open the template which you like the most.
You have to do the same thing for the rest of the body section. Simply add an image on the left and add a text field on the right by simply dragging it into the page.
In the final step, you click the preview option to see your site changes.
After seeing your site working correctly, you hit the publish button to make your site live.
Nowadays, many developers have a bit of a stigma around while using many website builders. On top of that, most of them limit what you can do and only let you build cookie-cutter sites.
On the other hand, Velo is a game-changer.
It is a smooth, intuitive, and quite powerful platform to develop apps and websites. Since it offers a server less framework, it takes much less development time as well. In short, Velo is worth the time to learn and use.
