Readymag: Create a Website Right in a Browser

Whether you are a beginner or an experienced web designer that needs to create a site that looks great with ease, Readymag has all the tools you need to do it right in your browser.

The design tool is made so you can create cool projects – including animations and trendy design elements – without any code right in your browser.

Here’s a look at Readymag and how it might work for your projects. (As a bonus, the example sites in this article were all created with Readymag!)

What is Readymag?

Readymag is a browser-based design tool that has everything you need to make visually complex projects on the web. Plus it includes features you might not expect from a browser-based, no-code tool.

It includes up-to-date typography options, impressive animations, and complete creative freedom with no layout limitations. Readymag doesn’t restrict creativity, offering free composition, a customizable grid, and a blank page to start with.

What’s nice about the tool is it provides a solution for users torn between website builders and complex systems that require the help of professional developers.

It’s all from a reputable company that’s been around since 2013. Readymag is designed to help build almost anything for the web — from websites and landing pages to editorials, presentations, portfolios, and prototypes — all with a single tool. Customers include independent creatives, design studios, and in-house teams at enterprises like Amazon, Airbnb, Complex, United Colors of Benetton, UNDP, Condé Nast College, Postmates, and Sleeper among others.

What Can it Do?

Readymag is a one-stop solution for creating a website for individuals or teams because you can design a website and even publish it in one click.

Readymag is a no-code tool that can do almost anything you can imagine for a project online.

Some of the things that make this tool different and stand out are interactive and animated features that you don’t find in a lot of other web builders.

You can create a standalone website or embed a project from Readymag into another website or page elsewhere, self-host it, or even download a PDF. This robust functionality is common with many no-code design tools.

On the web design side, it has everything you would expect from a website tool, including integration of plugins, analytics, custom code, and more. You can even take bookings or collect payments.

Simply, Readymag is a no-code tool that can do almost anything you can imagine for a project online. The interface will make graphic designers feel at home: it has that familiar editorial feel with exceptional attention to typography details.

Key Features of Readymag

In addition to the elements listed above, Readymag is packed with usable and functional tools to help you create projects with ease.

Key features include:

  • Typography library that includes more than 5,000 free fonts, including variable fonts and the ability to upload your own typefaces.
  • Powerful and fast-loading animations that are easy to implement and compatible with all layouts. Move or rotate widgets, change opacity and scale or combine these and other effects to create multi-step dynamic masterpieces.
  • A drag-and-drop editor and WYSIWYG attitude makes designing easy and fun: you can just drop everything you need on the page to get rid of designer’s block, and then fine-tune your ideas to perfection
  • A shots feature that allows you to turn video or image sequences into stills that are shown one by one when users scroll or hover. You can create interactive videos that are controlled by the user!
  • Custom cursors that work for an entire site or just specific widgets
  • Draggable page elements that help create a greater connection between creator and audience as well as grow user engagement.
  • Collaboration tools that include a “locked layout” mode so that team members can edit without impacting the design. You can restrict access to the entire project or just certain pages by setting a password. There’s also an option to customize login pages.
  • Embed Readymag projects in other sites or designs. Customize any website no matter how it was made including using Readymag, a website builder, or coded entirely from scratch. You can also export projects for self-hosting or PDF download.
  • Integrate services, plugins, and widgets, or even add your own custom code. This also includes tools for analytics, video uploads, and even booking and payment options.
