To our great surprise, all Boomla users wanted to use the cloud based version of Boomla. They said the online IDE is good enough in both features and speed, so there is no point.
Thus, we decided to temporarily pull the plug on the local distribution and focus on moving faster. Alas, the binaries below are limited in features. Currently, it is only maintained to support downloading and exporting projects to your local filesystem for backup purposes. You can also run Boomla locally and use the downloaded websites as an anonymous visitor. Please get in touch if you would need it for other purposes.
We plan to bring it back later once there is a need for it and our team got bigger.


Download Boomla

Boomla was designed to work both in the Boomla Cloud and locally for development and backup purposes.

The local version is currently not fully maintained but it is coming back later. In particular, the local control panel doesn't work and SSL certificates are not generated, which means you can't log in and edit websites through the browser, though you can use them as an anonymous visitor. You can use the command line to download and export websites to your local POSIX filesystem.
