Thank you @kevin for hunting us! πŸ™Œ It's been around a year and a half since we were last on product hunt. At that time we had a development framework for building websites and web applications. As you can see we have evolved into a full featured CMS in the meantime. The technology and how we build websites and applications is evolving, and one of the current trends, that will most likely define the next era of the "cloud" is called serverless. We decided to take a bet on that and build a full features CMS designed for such an environment. We hope you'll give Webiny a try. At the moment we are in beta and are looking for feedback.
Webiny looks amazing! I love the drag and drop builder and all the nice little touches such as icon search. I've used website builders before and this one is very nice so great work there! Unfortunately, there is a dealbreaker that prevents me from exploring Webiny further. The website load times are very slow. Loading the default Webiny site takes over 4 seconds! The issue seems to be static file download speed. I notice that chunk.js is over half a megabyte and takes over 1 second to download. The other static assets take over a second to download as well. If you can setup a CDN to automatically distribute static assets to memcache server with 100 Gigabit fiber output, that might help your static assets load faster. Looking forward to great things from Webiny!
@rayliverified thanks Ray. The load time is something we are addressing. There will be a different CDN used for when a website is served over a custom domain and the load times we expect will improve. This is one area that is never perfect and constant improvements will need to be done over time. Not sure if you noticed, but for example for all images inserted via the page builder, we actually serve a srcset back to the browser with multiple image sizes, which improves page load times on mobile greatly. Additionally to battle latency, we plan to introduce an option so a user can choose from which AWS region his site will be served.
@svenalhamad Thanks Sven, I think you're onto something really great here! My coworker was looking for a CMS platform (not Wordpress!) and Webiny seems to be trying to fill that niche. Can't wait to see how Webiny improves!
Wow! Amazing!
