About the project
Silex is a free and open-source website builder and an alternative to Wix. It inherits its spirit from the DIY and web maker movement, inspired by Mozilla and ownCloud.
Silex (https://www.silex.me/) is a free and open source website builder. Since 2009, designers, entrepreneurs, web developers use Silex to create professional showcase websites, starting from a blank page or on the basis of sample provided free templates.
Behind Silex, there’s a non profit organization, Silex Labs, that ensures Silex remains free, that it respects your privacy and web standards. On the other hand, we use Silex to initiate beginners to the web business, Silex being a source of motivation and a tool to fight the digital divide.
And finally, we invite Silex on your visitors phones by adding a publisher allowing to optimize the mobile version of your websites.
The majority of funds will be donated to the association and this new communication experience with Silex users will guide us in further developments.
What are the funds for?
1.500 € => e-inclusion and cloud: Thanks to you, we will organise 5 workshops to initiate people victim of the digital divide to Silex. For you, we will add new services to store your data and to collaborate such as Github or Owncloud.
