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 "Color Block"?
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 second of which was approved and released on May 18th, 2016. This second app, Color Block, addresses another long-standing limitation in Weebly: there has been no mechanism to highlight particular content by putting a solid block of color behind it. Inside the Color Block, one can insert any combination of content blocks - titles, text, images, etc., or even other Color Blocks.
In addition to specifying the color and transparency of the background of the Color Block, one can also round each of the corners individually and specify the padding for each of the four sides of the block (top, bottom, left and right) individually.
In the first 100 days since Color Block was released, it has been installed on more than 13,000 websites and achieved an average rating of 4.8 out of 5 stars.
