Pingy Web Scaffold

Scaffold beautiful websites using your web browser

Most website scaffolding tools use a command-line interface to ask you questions about your scaffold.

Pingy uses your web browser as the scaffolding interface. This enables much richer interactions and even allows you to preview your scaffold before it's created.

Hey Hunters, Pingy CLI has just added Web Scaffolds. Scaffolding your website in a web browser (instead of the command-line) seems like a no-brainer but no other scaffolding tools are doing it AFAIK. This is just the start, I can't wait to build out some more Web Scaffolds. I'm super excited about where this will go, doing this in a web browser opens the door for some very interesting interactions. Stay tuned. Also, if anybody is interested in creating their own Web Scaffolds then get in touch, I would be delighted to help. :) By the way, Web Scaffold is part of Pingy CLI (https://pin.gy/cli) … and it will be part of Pingy Desktop when it is launched (https://pin.gy)

So what are the advantages of scaffolding a project through the browser as opposed to the command line?

@markhorgan The browser provides a rich interface and a huge existing ecosystem of tools/libraries. Let's take a simple example, imagine you are choosing layout/design options for your website's header: 1. Choose a background colour: You can use a colour wheel/palette that is much easier than typing in a hex code on the command line. 2. Choose logo: A file input field is much easier than typing a path. The scaffold can not only put your logo in the header but it can create various favicons from your logo. 3. Preview: Best of all, you can see exactly what your header will look like in your browser before you go ahead and decide to actually scaffold it to your file system. This is great for when there are multiple different layout choices.
