Thunkable builder with drag and drop components

🎉 New Feature: Custom Components 

We are proud to announce the beta launch of Custom Components. This new capability allows you to save combinations of components and blocks to reuse in your projects and share them for other Creators to use. Create the component in the component editor once and use it as often as you need in any of your projects. This eagerly anticipated and highly requested feature is now available to all users in public beta; meaning that you can experiment, build, and share your own custom components.

A window labeled 'Create a Component', inviting users to create and share a new custom component.

What Does This Mean for You?

Creators now have the ability to integrate custom components into any project, saving valuable time and effort. Create, reuse, and share component and block combinations with this powerful new feature. Learn how to use and implement Custom Components in under five minutes:

Who Is This Available To?
