Why use GrapesJS instead of other common WYSIWYG editors? GrapesJS has the answer. While other editors may be good for content editing, they’re not good for building HTML structures that can be accessed and used by anyone for any purpose.

GrapesJS also comes with a Layer Manager that lets you quickly manage and rearrange elements to keep the structure of components well-organized.

You can style each component in the canvas using the built-in Style Manager.

And responsive design means users can optimize templates for different kinds of devices.

For adding pictures and other media, the intuitive Asset Manager makes it easy to keep track of media files.
