If you create a lot of websites like I do, you'll know it can be challenging to find the perfect system and workflow. The last couple of years, I created a Laravel app for every single site I built, because it gave me superpowers. But with dozens of them running, the maintenance burden became pretty high. While looking for a solution, the idea for Devisto was born.
This is what we offer you in a nutshell:

Data management as it should be.
Data is the backbone of every website and we take it very seriously. We give you all the tools to manage your data in the best way possible.
- Import from various sources
- Import data from Excel, Google Spreadsheets, Airtable or any API, one time or scheduled. When testing, you can also seed your tables with the help of Faker and Unsplash.
- Building a multi-lingual site in Devisto is a breeze. Create as many languages as you need. Define which fields are translatable. Translate values quickly with Google Translate.
- Powerful search
- If you're used to searching in Gmail, you'll gonna love this one. You can find anything, even in related tables. Or make scopes for fine-grained control and reusability in your code.
- All your tables are accessible with our API. We kept it as simple as possible: create an API token in your account, and get your first results in minutes.
Full stack control.
We didn't invent any framework or language but embrace the TALL stack. If you know Laravel, you can use the syntax you know and love to write your views. All you need to learn is some helpers. Write your back-end functionality in Livewire components. Tailwind and Alpine.js are recommended but optional.
- You're in control
- Typically, hosted site builders let you put some stuff on pages, and then generate HTML for you. Not in Devisto. You have control over every single letter of HTML, CSS and JS.
- Helpers & Snippets
- We provide you with dozens of helpers to access data tables, pages, assets, mails, languages, and so on. Snippets can get you a certain layout or functionality just by copy & pasting. Save your own snippets for later use or to share them with your team.
- Open in VS Code
- Don't want to code in the browser? Install our extension and open every Devisto project in VS Code. Your code is synced to the cloud automatically and even refreshes the preview when it's open.
- Integrated Tinker
- It's like a console for your back-end. You can use it to quickly test things out or to debug your code.
Upload your assets, we do the rest.
We make asset management as flexible as possible. Never worry again about storage or bandwidth.
- Unlimited storage
- Upload as many images, videos or other files as you want. No matter how many or how big, we handle it for you, at no extra cost.
- Auto resize & optimization
- We automatically optimize images and create responsive versions for every screen size, so your websites load as fast as possible. We also generate blurry loading images and use lazy loading to provide a pleasant loading experience.
Preview all the things.
With one click, you get an instant preview of what you're working on, which reloads automatically when you navigate or save. You can even preview Livewire components and mails.
- Responsive previews
- Preview your project in several devices at once. When your screen is too small, the preview automatically zooms out to make sure you see the full picture.
- Sidebar or new window
- Open preview as a sidebar in the same browser window. Or, if you have multiple monitors, pop it out to its own window.
All websites are hosted on AWS in a dockerized configuration. That means the performance of other sites will never influence your site.
- Staging & production environments
- Each website starts in a staging environment. When ready, you can publish the project to production and point any domain name to it.
- Only pay what you use
- We only charge for production environments. You never pay for staging and we put no time limits on them. So in a way, you can see our staging environment as one big playground.
- Automatic backups
- Every night, we take a backup of every project and keep it for 30 days. You can even create and restore backups yourself.
- Automatic SSL
- Every domain you link instantly gets a free, auto-renewed SSL certificate. You can link as many domains as you want to a project.
I've been building websites since the nineties. I built many CMS systems along the way, constantly searching for the perfect system and workflow. With Devisto, I think I finally cracked it. I've put my heart and soul into it and can't wait to share it with you.
Coming in April 2021
