Neve Vs GeneratePress Overview

The Themeisle company powered WordPress theme, Neve not only allows you to easily and quickly create stunning websites but also helps you grow your site fast by its mobile-first approach and several other advanced features. 

On the other end, GeneratePress is a lightweight WordPress theme that has been around for some years now with over 60,000 happy customers. The theme is largely customizable and most importantly, it has a very simple interface that makes editing ridiculously easy and quick.

Neve Vs GeneratePress Features


The loading time of a theme is one of the most crucial aspects to check before you choose one. Neve is pretty lightweight and is just 28KB. Besides, Neve comes with  AMP and uses Vanilla Javascript instead of no jQuery. 

GeneratePress is also pretty lightweight with a size of just 30KB and replaced jQuery with Vanilla Javascript to avoid render-blocking issues. While Neve Outranked Astra, I was really excited to test it with GeneratePress.

To get the real world data, I installed two demo sites on my Cloudways Linode hosting and installed each theme on my two websites.

Page Builder Support

Web Designing has got pretty easy even since page builder plugins were introduced and using a page builder, users can create the most stunning web designs without having to hire professional web designers.

Neve and GeneratePress support page builder plugins. However, GeneratePress supports comparatively less number of page builder plugins than Neve. 

While Neve can be seamlessly integrated with as many as 7-page builders comprising Gutenberg, Elementor, Brizy, Beaver Builder, Visual Composer, SiteOrigin, and Divi, GeneratePress supports only Elementor and Beaver Builder.

This again gives Neve a leading edge over GeneratePress.
