What Is Makeup?

Makeup is a tool for development and comfortable quality assurance of markup on web projects. You'll certainly find it useful if your design is based on independent blocks and you prioritize stability and reliability.

Makeup is a JavaScript library. It provides visual interface for isolated development and quick manual regression testing of web pages, built from independent blocks.

Check out the interactive Makeup promotion site!

Why Should I Use Makeup?

Makeup allows you to:

  • Compare page design with the sample layout,
  • Monitor blocks for modifications and mismatching content,
  • Develop isolated blocks with ease.


Features of Makeup can be seen on the Makeup demo page.

Examples can be found in the demo/ subfolder. Just open any

file in your browser.
