Do you use WYSWIG-Editor for Web Development?

Hi Guys,

So I’ve read a topic about Pinegrow and checked it out. But I wonder, do you guys really use these programs?

I mean professionally.

  • Never!

My initial process is using sublime, making changes, saving, hitting F5 and checking out the results.

Then any styling changes I just use the browsers developer tools (F12) and make changes to see them in action right away. If I don’t like it, I remove the rules. If I do, I copy what worked to the css file.

Pure F5 or live reload with Grunt.


mostly just pure head imagination and type it in notepad, save it and the rest is using F12 in chrome.

I hate when I make some style changes, and accidentally press either F5, a link on the page, or the back button, before I copy everything. Just *sigh * and start all over again.

Lol, yeah I’m with ya. Accidentally refresh, panic for a minute, spend the next 10 minutes retracing your steps to figure out what the hell you just did haha

I find Pinegrow exceptional for templating something together initially - I guess in the way a lot of designers will put something together on paper or in photoshop…?

Rarely will that code be used in the final website (although it does generate nice, clean code). But I find it to be a great starting point for someone who has no sense of style.

I honestly never liked WYSWIG / drag and drop softwares. Pure coding will always will be the best. Also modt of these softwares contain bugs.
