Welcome Form-Builder to our family


Form-Builder screen cast

We are happy to announce the newest addition to our family - form-builder.

It is an open source tool that allows you to build web forms quickly and easily.


Most if not all form builders are visual drag-and-drop builders. However, the drag-and-drop part is only for the field-type (text, phone, dropdown, etc), and then comes the part of of filling-in forms with all the settings of that field. I personally feel that filling-in forms in order to create forms is tedious and not necessarily the best option.


So form-builder takes a different approach - write plain text to describe your form, and the builder will auto generate the form form you. The text editor comes with auto-complete as-you-type, so adding a field is very quick.


What are the benefits of using form-builder?

  • Themed CSS are provided so the forms look great out of the box

  • Forms are responsive and work on any device and screen size

  • On mobile each field gets the correct keyboard - numeric pad for phone numbers, @ sign for email fields, etc

  • Forms are accessible - the can be read correctly by screen readers and easy to read and fill for people with disabilities

  • There are no dependencies in other libraries or frameworks both JS and CSS, and there are no collisions with other libraries or frameworks. Drop it in any site you like

  • The generated forms have clean, semantically correct HTML. All-in-all, it's just an HTML. You can take it and customize it any way you like


So give it a try and let us know what you think!
