One of our biggest goals while building Divi, has been to help web designers be productive and improve efficiency in their workflows. That means empowering you to build beautiful websites, and empowering you to build them quickly. To accomplish this we have created a tool that is both robust and easy to use, filled with all of the customization options a designer would need and presented in a way that is intuitive, but at the foundation of all those things is the speed of the application itself, and today’s update is all about making the Visual Builder faster.

Now Powered By React 16

Divi’s Visual Builder is a front-end application built on the React Javascript library, and today we are updating that foundation to latest version, React 16. With this comes inherent performance improvements along with new tools that allow us to build an even better, and faster, piece of software. It also means that our entire tech stack can be updated, allowing us to leverage similar improvements from the community.

Optimized For Speed. Experience Blazing Fast Editing

We have done a lot more than just update our libraries. We have also greatly optimized the Visual Builder to improve performance when making changes to your page. To put it simply, when you customize the design of your page, those design changes will now appear much faster than before, reducing the feeling of lag or glitchiness and making the Visual editing experience a whole lot more enjoyable. Each button click feel snappy and responsive, adjusting range sliders feels smooth and graceful, and exploring the color picker is just plain lovely.
