Check the system requirements before installing. Easy installation and service onboarding, a set of sample templates and Visual Studio extensions, help you get your development projects quickly up and running. With Optimizely's continuous releases, updates are available on a weekly basis, so you can keep projects up-to-date, with a shorter time-to-market for customer solutions.

Sample and demo sites

When you install an Optimizely site through Visual Studio, you have the option to install a CMS sample site to explore Optimizely. You can also install a Customized Commerce sample site, to explore an example implementation of a Customized Commerce solution.

For headless scenarios, where the website presentation layer is decoupled from the back-end content management and e-commerce functionality, see the public repository for Content Delivery JS SDK on GitHub. The sample sites shows how to render Optimizely content in a client-side framework and how to to render Optimizely content with a JavaScript framework with server-side rendering.

Optimizely Foundation is a reference architecture and an example of a platform solution with multiple Optimizely products. You can use Foundation for demo purposes, or as a starting point to quickly get up and running with your Optimizely solution.
