Our First Weebly App: "Group"

What is Weebly?

Weebly is a website builder, a class of tools that allow you to create a website using an intuitive, drag-and-drop user interface. These tools are intended to allow a company to maintain and incrementally develop their website on their own, without the overhead of using a web developer for ongoing changes.

Weebly is a very popular tool, used by tens of millions of websites. It runs in a web browser, features an intuitive, drag-and-drop user interface and also has iOS and Android apps for editing your web site on the go.


What is "Group"?

Earlier this year, Weebly introduced their own App Center, allowing third-party developers to create new apps to extend the functionality of the core Weebly toolkit.

Finite Wisdom has created several of these apps, the first of which was approved and released on May 2nd, 2016. This first app, Group, addresses a long-standing limitation in Weebly: there has been no mechanism to move or copy elements as a group. If you had a logical group of elements (say, a photograph, associated title and short description), you could not move or copy them together. Instead, you needed to move or copy each of the elements individually and reconstruct the group. This was very tedious and a common complaint from Weebly users.

In the first two weeks since Group was released, it has been installed on more than 500 web sites.
