Our mission is to help you build cutting-edge websites faster and better.
Quix has grown tremendously since its very beginning. We've introduced dozens of new features over the past 2 years, yet the main experience of creating a website with Quix remains the same.
For over a year, we've taken the time to chat with you in person, online, and through email. We've also read through thousands of customers tickets to understand your pain points and frustrations.
In listening to you, it became clear that it was time to take a revolutionary leap: to create a Quix experience that's faster and simpler.
We've learned a lot and applied all the things we've learned to make Quix even better, for you.
Here is an inside look and roadmap of how things are coming together as we roll out the second version of our product: Quix version 2.
Let's see how Quix helps you to fix these problems, the moment you start building your website.
Performance has never been an afterthought for Quix. We are very obsessed with speed and from the very beginning, we used page caching, asset caching, device based rendering and so on...
Now, when we talk about the performance of v2 there are two sides of it.
Page Building: Quix v2 comes with live frontend editing interface with a huge array of settings. You can build websites 2x faster than before. You will be able to see changes live while you make it and it will autosave your changes.
Page Loading: We re-wrote the entire rendering engine using the most popular and fastest template engine in the PHP world. I'll talk about this in a later blog post. The new template engine loads Quix page faster than ever before.
What about the backend editor? Is it still available?
Do not worry, we won't remove backend editor. Both backend and front editor will be available with Quix 2.0. You can use whichever one that suits you best. All of the old pages created with v1 will open with the backend editor (called classic editor) and the new page will use the frontend editor.
Search Engine Optimization At It's Best
What is the benefit of having a beautiful site when people cannot find them in search results? Quix 2.0 enables you to easily build a beautiful responsive site with more SEO friendliness.
The codebase of Quix 2.0 is 100% optimized for SEO.
Our enhanced SEO plugin increases your chances of showing up in a website search result.
Our newly created SEO plugin will tell you your live score while building the website ( surprise :) )
Everyone has equal rights. So we are giving fair support for everyone. Quix 2.0 is coming with accessibility support for people with disabilities. The UI structure, element switching, menu items searching and all other things will be very much easier with new Quix.
Technical Changes That Matter
Let's talk about some technical changes that coming with the new version.
With the power of flex and CSS grid system, you can build any kind of layout you want. Bootstrap 4 is completely re-written with CSS flex and lot more cool features. It's completely modular and most popular choice for front-end developers. We decided to go with BS4 but remember Quix is completely framework agnostic. You can use any framework you want. Such as UiKit, Foundation or Semantic UI.
Font Awesome 5
Icons play an essential role in websites, and Font Awesome is the most popular icon pack available. Font Awesome gives you more control, icons, and more customizability options than any other icon packs. You will be glad to know, Quix 2.0 is coming with Font Awesome 5 which means you will be getting most out of Font Awesome and you will be able to use more icons in the coolest ways. Grow, shrink, rotate, do whatever you like to do with your icons and make awesome websites with Quix 2.0
