List of Templates

This feature is currently in Beta phase.

While it is possible to define the skeleton of a web application using the ShapeDiver App Builder components in Grasshopper, this still leaves room for many layout variations for the final application.

Read more about building Apps in Grasshopper in this article.

However, fine-grained control of these layout variations is out of the scope of Grasshopper logic. For this reason, the Shapediver App Builder features offer two different ways to generate Apps:

  • Use the pre-defined templates provided by ShapeDiver and the developers community. From each template, themes can be customized to specify custom styling options.

  • Use the open-source SDK to adapt and create custom templates.
