While working on PageSection in 2021, I came across Tailblocks (tailblocks.cc) on GitHub, which is a set of ready-to-use Tailwind CSS blocks and snippets developed and maintained by Mert Cukuren. It features a great UI/UX, includes both light-mode & dark-mode support and even theme color switching. I enjoyed using Tailblocks and immediately recognized the value.

Another cool website, which I discovered after further researching the target audience of other HTML template services, is Tailwind Toolbox (tailwindtoolbox.com) developed and maintained by Amrit Nagi. It features various HTML components, starter-templates, themes, templates and even tools relevant to the Tailwind CSS (tailwindcss.com) framework.

In my opinion, Tailwind Toolbox is one of the most successful indie projects given the amount of traffic and backlinks it gets on the web. Want to see for yourself, check out the site or visit its public web-analytics page and see the (very impressive) numbers.

Even more impressive is the fact that it gained much success and traffic without any promotion according to a tweet from the main developer. I would also like to give my thanks and appreciation to both the creator and the community of Tailwind Toolbox as one of my early 2021 submissions was accepted and featured in the starter-templates category on the website.
Wow! 100k page views in the last month for https://t.co/cnKg83lvNh!— Amrit Nagi (@amritnagi) September 23, 2020
Nice little achievement, especially as I've never promoted it anywhere!! 🤯

Both Tailblocks and Tailwind Toolbox provide MIT licensed (free to use) HTML templates and snippets, and are quite successful despite being run by individual solo developers. With that inspiration, I decided to take on a new role and direction at PageSection, by focusing and providing free HTML templates and snippets that users can edit and customize online within the web browser. Users may find these content-editable templates useful when saving time creating HTML markup and content.
PageSection's editable HTML templates and snippets are not limited to a single CSS framework. As of the time this post was written, we have already provided for most of the popular front-end frameworks including Bootstrap 4, Bootstrap 3, Bulma, and a bunch of editable webpages. This is because the HTML Editor lets users upload and edit any HTML template with valid markup. We look forward to adding more templates and snippets for a variety of HTML/CSS frameworks in the future.
With PageSection, you can upload and edit your own custom HTML template(s).
