It Takes A Team

Canvas is developed by a group of contributors all over the world who donate their time and skills to create a unique blogging platform for everyone.

Anyone is eligible to contribute to the project. In fact, we encourage young developers to jump in and cut their teeth on the many open source technologies implemented here.

We all started somewhere. Why not start here?

Built-In Features

Canvas comes packed with features right out of the box, yet will always remain easy to setup, flexible to extend, and enjoyable to use.


All of the little extra things add up to make a BIG difference. From the clean application code itself to the growing ecosystem and community, we deliver on all accounts.

An Alternative Solution

If you’re sick of wading through menus and navigating complex options that you never use, we’ve got news for you: So were we. WordPress, Medium, and Tumblr have their niche market, but fall short when it comes to providing a simple, extensible, feature-rich blogging experience out of the box.

Considering switching to Canvas? It's an important decision. But it's one we promise you won't regret.


Canvas looks great on any device. Check out why this platform stands out from the rest when it comes to implementing some of the most popular design trends today.
