Templates are great, but wouldn't it be awesome if the template marketplace on Webflow had a section with individual elements that you could clone and use within your site without having to start a whole new site to get a feature you like from a template.
For example, an individual blog post container that you could copy and paste into your custom site. This would save a lot of time designing and building out interactions/transitions if there were a marketplace that contained these individual pre built items that you could use wherever you like.
As promised, our first step toward a user component system was shipping copy and paste between projects in April, which has spawned a growth of cloneable UI kits (and hopefully made many of your lives a lot easier, as it has ours).
We’re now working on Components to rehaul and dramatically improve what’s possible with symbols: think nestable (symbols within symbols), overridable styles, and ultimately, easy sharing across projects. We’re still in the initial planning phases of this project so can’t share timelines, but know that we’re thinking long term on this challenge and have exciting developments in the works. Once we launch Components, that will lay the foundation for a larger, collaborative “marketplace” of shareable, user generated components.
