Nick Roach, the founder of Elegant Themes, and his team is working very hard on making Divi Builder the best visual editor for WordPress. To do that, Divi 3.0 will come with the next level of Divi Builder where users will get front-end editing option to build a page or complete website without opening the back-end editor. Frontend editor of Divi Builder will have fast response time as well as better UI. It is being build using React and Flux Javascripts, the same technologies used to develop Calypso by WordPress.com team. It is said that the front side UI will be similar to the back-end editor of Divi Builder so that users will not having much difficulty in understanding the operations.

In a recent article, Divi team published a sneak peek of the new Divi Builder where one can see how easy it is to change font or add content on front-end.

Better UI and More Libraries

Divi comes with loaded libraries which are nothing but a pre-designed layouts. For example, if you are planning to make a product launch website, you can pick such design from the library and start editing the same. The library layout will have all the sections already added, you can go and edit the sections by adding or removing one. With Divi 3.0, it is expected that we will get more ready designs under the library option and also a complete package for different categories like construction sites, photography sites, corporate sites, creative agency sites etc.

Ready Extensions

With Divi Marathon, the team has already started releasing Divi extensions to make Divi even better. For example, the login screen customization can be done with the Divi Login extension which allows you to put your own logo on the login page. With Divi 3.0, we can have a separate page where premium customers can download the ready extensions without paying any extra charges.
