Love It

I know code and web technology. I have used a few page builders and editors. Go and Talk has helped me to create and format content at a speed I could never achieve with other tools, without touching code again. That’s why we have built this tool, for designers and content creators. I love it, and I believe you will find it helpful too.

Using Custom Styles and Fonts

Go and Talk page builder uses Tachyons CSS to achieve flexible and modular designs. The utility classes take effect only when applied to an element. The element styles are reset to default when the classes are removed. This approach helps to keep the CSS slim even for complicated projects. Designers can style an element freely without worrying about breaking something else.

Go and Talk page builder supports inline style declaration and external CSS files. The inline styles written in the site settings window take effect immediately, and are saved automatically. Professional designers may find this feature useful in creating custom animations as you can watch the animation taking place while you change the parameters. When you are happy about the result, the parameters are already included in the site setting ready for production.

The external CSS URLs can load custom CSS files, external CSS library, or custom fonts such as Google fonts.
