Makeswift is a no-code website builder created by the Landing Lion team. Makeswift is thoughtfully designed to put you in flow & give you creative control.
Makeswift enhances the page building experience to make building full-scale, custom websites easier than ever.
Manage your design system’s brand palette in one place with site level color swatches.
Use any number of fonts, weights, and styles with a deeper and more flexible Google Fonts integration.
Leverage our new responsive grid features to customize your form layouts.
Easily include videos from other major platforms such as Vimeo, Facebook, and Wistia into your pages.
Set custom ID attributes on any element to target in your custom code snippets.
Create reusable, responsive typography to keep text styles across your pages consistent on every device.
Unlock infinite layout possibilities with the Box. The Box replaces sections, rows, and columns, and can be nested as many times as you need.
Organize your long, custom code blocks into reusable, bite-size snippets that can be shared across pages.
Add button styles and dropdowns to your navigation links for deeper customization.
Finally, you can move your pages between collections, as well as nest collections within each other.
In order to capture our vision, we focused on what makes us different—a smooth, page building experience designed to keep our customers in flow. You can easily replace the features we left out of Makeswift with code snippets from any of the following products.
Importing your Landing Lion pages to Makeswift is seamless. Our import tool automagically migrates your pages and files to Makeswift in minutes, saving you time from recreating them elsewhere.
We’re offering special pricing plans to Landing Lion users who import their pages to Makeswift. Both plans include a 14 day free trial.

* Plan is subject to changes in the future.
Because the Landing Lion app is now shut down, you can no longer log into your Landing Lion account. Your subscription automatically ended on March 20, 2020 so you won't receive any more charges.
All pages published in Landing Lion will remain online for the time being, allowing you to import them into Makeswift.
You cannot export content from Landing Lion. Makeswift's import tool will automatically transfer all your files and pages into Makeswift. If you do not plan on moving to Makeswift, you will need to recreate your pages using whichever tool you switch to.
Since you can no longer log into your Landing Lion account, you do not have access to your analytics and will be unable to export them.
Depending on the amount of files and pages transferred to Makeswift, the import tool can take from 5 minutes up to 20 minutes. Changes made to Makeswift pages will not sync with existing Landing Lion pages.
No, the import tool will not make any changes to your Landing Lion pages. All pages will remain online until you choose to point your domain(s) to your Makeswift site(s).
Form data will not be imported into Makeswift. Forms in Makeswift are connected to a new feature called Databases. The import tool will automatically create database tables based on existing forms in Landing Lion.
Form alerts are managed in each database table and will need to be set up manually once you’ve completed the import.
Makeswift currently only has a Zapier integration, so any native integrations set up in Landing Lion will not carry over. You can create your own integrations, or “Zaps”, within Zapier to connect your Makeswift account to over 1,500 other apps.
Integrations will continue to work for Landing Lion pages during this extended period.
The import tool will convert Landing Lion pages into Makeswift ones, including transferring all content, colors, Google fonts, metadata, and custom code. Because of some differences between the two products, certain items such as custom code and forms will require attention.
We highly suggest following the Reviewing Imported Pages section of our “Transitioning from Landing Lion to Makeswift” help article to guide you through the review process.
If you have pages using your default Landing Lion domain, e.g. my-site.landinglion.com, you will not be able to set a redirect for them.

Yes, our Help Center contains articles explaining workspace settings, managing sites, and using the page builder.
We first announced the plan to focus on Makeswift and eventually sunset Landing Lion in November of 2018. We first announced the date that Landing Lion was shutting down on January 24, 2020.
