Kiolezo, Drag and drop Joomla template builder.

Build the template of your website directly from Joomla! by simply drag and drop rows, columns, module positions, images and many other elements.

Kiolezo is a component made to build Joomla template by drag and drop.

It's different from other builders because this is not a page builder, instead Kiolezo is a template builder, so you can create all parts of your template just by drag and drop.

All created templates can be used directly by Kiolezo, through the template expressly created and installed together with the component, to keep the drag and drop edit feature, or can be exported in zip archive format and installed on any other Joomla! based website (minimum required version 3.9.0).
