- If you're familiar with photoshop, this is the tool. It's pixel perfect, drag and drop like photoshop no need for coding skills what so ever, has everything inside check it out! Oh and you can get great deals + everything hosted with Google Cloud so it's a plus!
- I use Sketch for designing most of the elements and publish them in Webflow in conjunction with their interactions. Launchpad for Sketch (https://www.producthunt.com/post...) can help you directly publishing a responsive website from Sketch.Sketch is the best tool right now. Yeah, you need to use a Mac, and yeah it might not be the best tool in a year. But right now, with all the plugins (Like Craft, etc), Sketch is pretty much game changing.
- Just started using Bubble and it's been great so far - I haven't found any other tool that allows you to build something so quickly and includes a bunch of plugins and design tools. They have a bunch of tutorial videos and even some quick courses to help you get started. You can also use it to build great mobile web apps and even native iOS and Android apps (although the native app feature is still in beta).
Look: There’s no platform that can enable someone with no freaking clue about how to build an app to magically build one... But boy does Bubble come close.
I love visual/no-code/alterna-code environments and have worked on several of the most famous ones. Bubble is right up there.
I feel like this tool‘s positioning (“you don’t have to be a coder”) belies its true strength. It‘s GRRRREAAAT for those who would rather NOT code most stuff.
I do my best to help folks out in the forums at forum.bubble.is, but wish it had a StackExhange equivalent -- it’s that deep. Love it and wish it the best. You can build awesome stuff on Bubble, but (duh) prepare to learn some computer science In the process (this is a GOOD thing)...
An app that's more about doing something technically than paying any attention to the user or use-cases. Is just very impractical, with all the real-world features difficult to impossible. Just look at data-upload: https://forum.bubble.is/t/best-way-to-bulk-upload/1690
- I've been using Squarespace for about a year and I like it a lot. No coding required at all, but you can inject code into the headers so that you can still use things like Google analytics. There are a lot of different themes and you can do a lot to customize them.
- @ajlkn is boss. best tool i've used for this purpose.Definitely the best for simple, one-page sites.
Carrd is the most amazing web building platform I've seen to date- and trust me, I've tried everything. You start off with a blank page, or choose from expertly-designed templates, then you can build your own site with content LEGOs: drag text under an image, make a row of links across the top, or even add some of your own code.
When you discover control bars that let you break your site into pages, though, it's when everything changes: Carrd goes from letting you create business-card like pages to making full-blown websites for anything- home base for your app with dedicated support and contact pages, a sign-up form for an event that plugs names and comments into a Google sheet, ANYTHING (how do I make extra bold?)
Carrd is now my go-to tool for anything web-building related. I made a website for a friend and even made a few bucks off it. I'm also teaching an HTML class for my homeschool support group and there will be a whole lesson on Carrd!
I just want to say thanks to @ajlkn for my favorite website for websites, ever.
Found it to be extremely useful to create a profile site that I can easily share with people so they can find all my social media handles by just going here !
- This team has been killing it. Better than Squarespace and Squarespace-like drag-and-drop editors.
Tilda is mostly a joy to use, the huge variety of blocks and the control that the site gives you (almost everything is adjustable) allows you to create pretty much anything without code and the results look fantastic.
Now, I'm not sure how well it's being maintained since some internal links on their homepage are broken (404).
The big problem is that, at $10/month with annual payment and $15/month with monthly payment, it is relatively expensive. I think that most people interested in Tilda would be hobbyist writers or photographers (that's just my personal guess) so 120 $ year just for a side project is quite a lot when there are free options out there.
Tilda does have a free option but many blocks are then locked, you cannot connect your own domain name and you are limited to a single page with 50 blocks in total (so blogs are out of the question on the free tier).
Despite that I spent quite a few hours messing around with Tilda and I really do like what I see. I'd love to recommend it to my friends but know they'd find it too expensive.
I'm inspired by the project, the people who work on it. It is really good, it develops no matter what, сonstantly there is something new, project management very attentively concerns feedback from users.
For me, Tilda has become the main development environment. At first there were some objections, they say, it is necessary to write code in wordpad-like stuff, keep yourself in a sweater with deers, grow a beard... The prototype becomes a mock-up, another man makes a mock-up to become a design, the other makes layout, the programmers are working after and so on and so on..
Guys, it`s 2018 outside!
We do not need to stop the car every 30 km to fill a bucket of water in the radiator, right? Times are changing, so is the format of work on web projects has changed, and this is Tilda Publishing!
- After using a bunch of tools like this for one-off sites, I have to say I was most at ease with Mobirise. For a product that is still scruffy, I found this desktop-based drop-and-drop editor to have 80% of what I wanted. And it spits out Bootstrap 4 code, all for free. You only pay for add-ons and plugins. Definitely worth a try.
Mobirise is fantastic, especially considering that it is 100% FREE for personal and commercial use. The websites you make with it can be exported into HTML, CCS and JS. The code is easy to read (another website builder I've tried exports all lines of code into a single line. To a browser that makes no difference, but it makes manually editing stuff really hard and slow).
The con is it's pretty limiting. I have made a few websites with it and despite my best efforts, they all look similar. I guess that's mostly because of Bootstrap BUT Mobirise plays a role too. For example, it has no option to have the logo in the middle of the header and the links on each side, you can only have the logo on the left, links on the right and CTA button far right (I think there's a single paid theme that includes a header with the logo in the middle). You can purchase additional themes which come with their own blocs. There are also AMP themes if you wanna make AMP website that load very fast, of course those are even more limiting.
I know Mobirise has had an Android app for years, but I never tried it cause I read it was terrible but they updated it last month and apparently it's good now (cross compatibility with Desktop app!).
I love that Mobirise does not try to lock you into their system in any way. You are free to build something basic with Mobirise and then tweak it.
With that said, they include hidden advertisement for Mobirise EVERYWHERE in your code. For example, you add an image, and by DEFAULT that image links to mobirise.com if clicked (I don't think you can switch that off even you buy a premium theme) and the "alt" is "mobirise" as well! Of course you can manually rename those but if you forget just one image, the link is there. Also, they include the name "mobirise" in file and folder names so you have to spend a LOT of time if you wanna remove all mentions of mobirise from the code.
There has been a number of updates / improvements. Well worth checking out if you need to create product pages fast!
