  • Popup builder: A unique no-code experience that provides your end users with the fundamentals of creating popups that grab and maintain attention.

  • File manager: A tool to manage media assets (images, PDFs, and so on).

  • Template catalog: A catalog of design templates that integrate industry best practices to support end users in getting across the finish line with their creations fast, and achieving quick design wins.

  • Custom AddOns: Expand your application's offering by developing your own Custom AddOns on top of our comprehensive suite of features.

These builders can easily integrate into your application in a matter of minutes. Browse the latest sample code, implementation guides, and other available features in this documentation.

Beefree SDK's Embeddable Builders

Learn more about our three embeddable builders.

File Manager

In addition to our drag-and-drop editors, we also offer a standalone File Manager application, which can be used alongside any of the builders. The File Manager is specifically designed to simplify the organization and management of digital assets, which might happen outside of a content editing session. It is an image and document management user interface that can be launched as a standalone application. This allows your customers to quickly upload or manage assets, without having to load one of the builders.

Learn more about our File Manager and File Storage Options.

Customize Your Application with AddOns

Content Services API and Template Catalog API

The Content Services API allows you to perform a number of tasks (e.g. refreshing the HTML for a certain asset) and add features to your application (e.g. converting an email to a PDF document). We continue to release new API methods to help you enrich and personalize the content design experience for your customers.

The Template Catalog API enables you to incorporate design templates into your application. With this API, you can browse, retrieve, and utilize a variety of pre-designed templates to enhance your user's content creation experience. It gives you the flexibility to offer customized design solutions directly within your platform.
