Hey everyone! I'm the co-founder & CEO of Flywheel, the makers of Local by Flywheel. We're pumped to be launching a simple, beautiful solution for building WordPress sites on your local machine. Let me know if you have any questions!
In a loooong discussion in the Pinegrow Web Editor's forum about the best local dev environment to support WP themes creation we kinda got to point that Docker based solution would be the best, but Kitematic and others "easy to use" tools were not quite ready for prime time for everybody, but Pressmatic was the only that *nailed* the question. I'm quite surprised - and happy - Flywheel made this enormous contribution to the WordPress community. Thanks!

@csfalcao Thanks Cesar! We definitely agree that a Docker based solution is best, and aim to make a super simple and beautiful local dev experience for WordPress! We've got a lot of great ideas on how to continue to innovate. Stay tuned for more details in the coming months!

Really happy to see Local get a bit more attention than Pressmatic! https://www.producthunt.com/post... I'm excited about its future and glad it's still being pushed forward by Clay.
