Zeno is a powerful, intuitive drag-and-drop page builder, focused on e-commerce websites, currently available on Shopify and BigCommerce platforms.

Zeno Page Builder is not a CMS on its own, it works on top of a platform and allows users to create pages without being worried about coding. The generated code is transferred to the underlying platform after publishing the pages.

Features of Zeno

  • Intuitive design: Designed for non-technical people, the user interface is simple and easy to use.

  • Powerful: With tons of features and customization, Zeno is very powerful. Moreover, it allows users to custom code to get anything done.

  • Fully responsive: Almost any style settings support responsiveness, and help design pages that look perfect on any device.

  • Lightweight and SEO friendly: Built from the ground up with no bloats or unnecessary libraries make it is extremely fast, optimized for loading time, and SEO friendly.

Zen of Zeno

We have referred to some in Zen of Python to make decisions about the design of Zeno. Those are:

  • Beautiful is better than ugly.

  • Explicit is better than implicit.

  • Simple is better than complex.

  • Complex is better than complicated.

  • Flat is better than nested.

  • Sparse is better than dense.

  • Readability counts.

  • Special cases aren't special enough to break the rules.

  • Although practicality beats purity.

  • Errors should never pass silently.

  • Unless explicitly silenced.

  • In the face of ambiguity, refuse the temptation to guess.

  • There should be one - and preferably only one - obvious way to do it.

  • Although that way may not be obvious at first unless you're Dutch.

Although a programming language and a page builder do not have much in common from the user's view, we found the Zen of Python is very helpful when thinking about designing and implementing of our product.
