What is deco.cx

The Old Web is broken, complicated and fragmented.

For the last 10 years, our team built high-volume, mission-critical websites and applications. We tested out most new frameworks and frontend architectures from KnockoutJS to React to GraphQL. Reflecting on our challenges and results, we believe the current state of web development is broken:

🧩 The complexity to build and deploy a web application has grown steadily, discouraging junior developers from building the web.

πŸ˜“ Developers and content creators often struggle to collaborate because the Headless CMS becomes a silo, requiring a lot of time to integrate and evolve;

🐒 Client-side-first apps have terrible performance for high-volume, content-driven websites like ecommerce storefronts, shipping ever-growing amounts of JavaScript code.

We wanted a simpler way for web developers to build and collaborate with their marketing peers, using modern web technologies, and without having to configure so much stuff. "No-code" is not enough, and often removes power from developers. We wanted to have one environment from code to content to data. We wanted to build the other side of code, a collaborative experience builder for developers and content creators to work together in.

Making webdev straightforward for teams of all sizes

That's why we created deco.cx: a complete webdev platform for developers and content teams to build collaborative experiences together. Developers write components and functions using Deno, JSX, HTMX, TypeScript, and Tailwind. We automatically generate a beautiful, visual admin UI from the TypeScript code!

Forget the costly and complex setup of a Headless CMS, or the inflexible structure of a no-code prison. deco.cx offers a seamless solution, making webdev straightforward for teams of all sizes:

πŸ”§ Localhost or web-based code editor with real-time visual content previews
