It’s been a long journey before Magento 2.3 Page Builder was officially available over the globe.

In December 2016, as Magento acquired the technology behind Bluefoot CMS & Page Builder and made it a core part of Magento platform, we were all eager and looked forward to positive changes that this module would bring to both Magento’s ecosystem and merchants.

Then to all expectations of Magento geeks, Page Builder was finally released as part of Magento Commerce 2.3.1 in March 26, 2019.

So what is Page Builder in Magento 2.3? Which features does it have? How to install and use it? This article will help you answer all of these questions so that you can have a complete overview of the module.
