IMPORTANT NOTE: Relax isn't yet ready for production, stay tuned for releases, beta version will come soon. You can see what we're working on here and what's missing in the beta milestone.

What is Relax

Relax is a powerful new generation CMS on top ofReact and Node.jswhich aims for a better way of building websites.

It features a live page builder based on components and a smart and easy way of binding dynamic data to them.

Our goal with Relax is to update the world with a new standard, having as the basic premise that anyone should be able to create a website without having to code.

We're currently working on releasing the beta version which should come up in December. If you want to collaborate in the meantime or just say anything join us at Relax Slack.



Relax uses sharp to resize images. If you're using OS X and have libvips installed globally, e.g. via brew, it may cause problems with sharp's compilation. You may need to uninstall via

brew remove libvips

. See for more information.

You'll also need [

Build and start


While in development it's convenient to keep your application running while watching for changes, for that you can run

yarn dev


The application will automatically restart when needed and keep your bundles up to date.


To build your assets ready to go for production run

yarn build


yarn start

to start the application.

. Afterwards run
