Wix Introduces Wix Code

07/25/2017

WATCH: Join Wix Co-founder and CEO Avishai Abrahami for a live broadcast today at 6pm ET

NEW YORK, July 25, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Wix.com Ltd. (Nasdaq: WIX), a leading cloud-based web development platform, today introduced Wix Code, a formidable new solution allowing users to create powerful web applications.

Wix Code provides an integrated development environment for the easy creation of web applications with custom business logic and a stunning user interface. This product opens new possibilities for creators, developers and designers looking for the easiest way to build web applications of all kinds — tailored to their business needs.

For more advanced users, Wix Code offers enhanced capabilities using JavaScript for both front-end interactivity and design or with back-end functionality. Wix Code provides serverless functionality, removing the hassle of setting up and maintaining web environments and allowing developers to focus their time on their application logic.

Additionally, Wix Code allows users to incorporate advanced features that were previously only available with custom code. Non-developers can take advantage of databases, databound UI components and end user custom forms and input controls through drag and drop technology.

"As always, Wix enables innovation and creation. Wix Code expands our market significantly by delivering a solution for creators, developers and designers to build web applications that can be tailored for any business need. With Wix Code, we've already built the infrastructure and are providing a platform with the freedom and flexibility for users to create custom solutions without the hassle normally associated with setup and maintenance. There was no way that we could have possibly provided a vertical solution for every one of our global users, but we were determined to give them a way to do it themselves. For over a decade we have delivered consumer solutions, and now we have provided the opportunity for users to further extend development opportunities by themselves in a way that was simply not possible before," said Avishai Abrahami, Wix.com Co-founder and CEO.

Abrahami continued, "Wix Code works for the creation of standalone web applications as well as to further enhance existing website functionality. The features benefit users at all levels and decrease the amount of time it takes to create something amazing. We believe that this design and development potential is currently unmatched in the marketplace. With Wix Code we have combined the front-end aesthetic of Wix, the powerful back-end of Wix OS and added an easily deployable infrastructure that allows anyone to create web applications with no limits on resilience, style, features or functionality."

A closed alpha of Wix Code was released in June and following today's introduction, the Wix Code Beta will now be accepting further applications.
