Flexbox

Right, but you can use it, and live preview. Yes, you should learn a little CSS3, but its worth it.

Thats why you have to touch the code in an editor anyway.

What you mean, I should wait three or four more years to have a usable tool.

@Blocs_User isn’t bootstrap studio built on top of a previous app? Unless I have it mixed up with another? Are they the guys who also make foundation studio?

If you feel Blocs is unusable, we can refund you immediately, no problem. Would you like me to progress with that?

Cool down man, no reason for refunding, for prototyping its ok.

@Horman ok no problem, Im just trying to give you good customer service. I appreciate Blocs is a not good match for everyone, Id rather have happy users and offer refunds in cases were words like unusable are used.

No that’s all they have. I think maybe you’re thinking of Coffee Cup Software? They keep building apps that look the same but are targeted for separate stuff, but the UI gets reused for each new app. They have Foundation Framer and BootStrap Builder which are all built on top of other previous tools, they have been around since 1996. So maybe you were thinking of them?

I understand your point of view. In fact I was speaking a lot of my own progression with my thoughts of Bloc’s in the other thread, concerning frustration, impatience, etc. But I have realized Bloc’s place and accepted that over time. That’s how I was able to write that post in the way I did. Bloc’s is a good app with a solid purpose and what I believe is bright future, regardless of possible current frustrations.

As you know other alternatives exist. I own Blocs, BootStrap Studio and Pinegrow, in addition to using editors like Atom, Brackets, etc., Blocs can have limitations, but it’s users can overcome those limitations post export if needed and they have the ability, or use other solutions all together if desired or required.

I whole heartily agree people should learn HTML, CSS, JS, native use of libraries and frameworks, either outright or as they have time to do so. I 100% encourage that. Having that knowledge you are no longer limited to an app, or can leverage any app more fully. But in the mean time, certain people like what Bloc’s offers as a simple interface to make modern looking responsive websites without needing to dig deeper into code if they don’t want. Hopefully though they can get intrigued and inspired to want too learn more because of using Bloc’s however. Nothing wrong with that.

Eventually Blocs will become more robust concerning features, abilities, documentation, etc.

@horman I feel like you are where I was at with my thinking a few months back, I was quite frustrated too, wanting to push Bloc’s along and perhaps be something it’s currently not or ready to be. But then I accepted Bloc’s for what it is in it’s own app space, it has a bright future ahead I am sure, with time more features and flexibility will no doubt come. I just want it to be the best it can be.

yes thats it, my apologies, I was thinking of the Coffecup WYSIWYG editor.

Blocs_User, I totally agreed with you. Hey everyone, just look: http://сто-металлик.рф It’s Blocs based website, I’ve made. Still in progress but I have to say it looks pretty damn good :thumbsup: As you can see there I’ve used some cool features that Blocs doesn’t have. And such things differ this website from other Blocs websites. Don’t you think so? ))) So what I want to say. If you want to create more, just add external plugins, scripts and more by your hand )) Of course, you’ll need some html, css, javascript experience.

Norm, I beleave that with new versions of Blocs you’ll create the best offline software for responsive websites creation :v:

Great site BTW.

You really must submit this to Portfolio website made with Blocs

Thanks )) I’ll do it a little bit later

Nice user name @blocs-user :wink:

Curious, what’s your workflow, just Blocs or external edits – are you using the HTML Widget Bric and adding resources and code via the page settings as needed, or are you just doing external after export edits?

Only after exporting project ))

Did you try via Blocs, or have issues when you did vs using post edits?

Just didn’t try.

webdeersign, you know. I think that my project doesn’t suite it. I’ve made this website not only using Blocs. It’s not fair )))

Oh ok, was curious, if you liked it via Blocs in app approach.

That shouldn’t matter, it’s more about showing what’s possible, the base is Blocs even with edits.

Oh well you are probably right. I just find it very encouraging to see good sites made in some degree using a tool like Blocs. It shows what can be done even if you have to go deep under the hood.

Ok ))) I’ll add my projects. There are some… ))

Very Cool :sunglasses:
