Getting Started for Developers
You can customize Builder.io to meet a variety of use cases, from minimal cms data models to building landing pages. You can allow complete free-form control of Builder.io content or limit it to your design system components.
Structuring your site
You can decide which parts of your site Builder manages and which parts you want to maintain in code via models. There are three main ways you can incorporate Builder:
- Builder pages: Use the drag-and-drop UI to develop everything between your site's header and footer.
- Builder sections: Make just a part of a page visually editable in Builder and use targeting and scheduling to decide who sees what.
- Builder CMS data: Fetch data from Builder and use it anywhere in your application, such as menu items.
Use Pages to manage entire pages, such as:
- Marketing and content pages
- Blog pages
- Landing pages
Use Sections to maintain parts of your site or app, such as:
- Announcement bars
- Product detail descriptions
- Collection heroes
- Cart upsells
Use Data to manage structured data, such as:
- Navigation links
- Product data
- Blog post authors
