Liveblocks is the platform for adding collaborative editing, comments, and notifications into your application.


Liveblocks is a fully integrated solution built around core products, each enabling a different facet of collaborative experiences: Comments, Notifications, Text Editor, and Realtime APIs. You can decide what products you want to use based on your requirements and collaborative experiences you’re looking to build.

How Liveblocks works - Products


A room is the digital space in which people collaborate. You can require your users to be authenticated to interact with rooms, and each room can have specific permissions and metadata associated with them.

How Liveblocks works - Rooms


A project in your dashboard represents an application which has rooms. Most Liveblocks products are room-based, however Notifications is project-based instead, so that users can receive notifications from other rooms.
