Creating a website for blockchain

I'm currently trying to build a website specifically for blockchain and use of ethereum. So I want to integrate web3js into it so users can log on and use metamask for payment into a token. I don't know much about html/css/js to build my own website so started looking at Wix and Wordpress yet neither have the capability of adding code to their prebuilt website.

Are there any providers out there that do?

Thanks,

Web3.js and MetaMask integration is pretty cutting edge, so I'm not sure there is going to be boilerplate code for something like this.

However, I did find a project built using a web framework called React which provides a MetaMask "tipping" boilerplate:

https://github.com/MetaMask/Eth-Token-Sender

This will require you be familiar with using command-line tools. If you're working with a web developer who isn't familiar with Web3, though, this could be a good example to show them how it's done.

Note: Ethjs, the library used by this project, is not actively maintained.

I think that you're best bet is learning a little bit about web design, as it will definitely come in handy in the future and allow you to customize your website much better. The end of the Cryptozombies course is all about building a web front-end with web3js.

Wix does have some support for JS: https://support.wix.com/en/article/working-with-javascript-in-wix-code, and so does Wordpress: https://www.godaddy.com/garage/3-ways-to-insert-javascript-into-wordpress-pages-or-posts/.
