Yes great, I totally get your point
I came to Pinegrow, after exploring several options, culminating in Macaw which promised a lot of the design centric/easy export features you mention.-but a lot of those export features/JS libraries didnt even exiat then!
so that was about V 1.15 or 1.27 of Pinegrow.
It’s come a long way!
My web requirements are pretty basic compared to most and it has sort of outgrown me, rather than I have outgrown it.
I need to play catch up.
But as the Devs say, they See PG as one tool in a webdev tool chain. Hence no FTP tooling etc built in as they already exist elsewhere.
But as you say, there are many good parrallel routes to PG and modern tech is…
F A S T!
Cherry picking the bits you want from various Apps to create your tool chaini is a good way but expensive.
But maybe choose one Best Design layout tool and incorporate that with PG?
You Posted some really good info, that TeleportHQ looks really good too.
But it’s a bit like going to a supermarket for Breakfast serial…
So many different boxes, prices,sizes that you end up giving up and running home with bread instead.
(Seen how many varieties of bread?
Maybe I should have said apples!..
Wait! HOW MANY Appl types?..)
Currently PG works the way it works as that was the devs wishes/focus at the time and they used it to get thier own work done.
And its based on the technologies they chose at the time (local app,node,chromium engine etc) so I guess it would be a bit of a major rework/new app to go off down the design centric route.
Still, who knows what they might do in the future
They’ll have seen your feedback (and that other guy’s )
And, yes, I guess youve seen the tutorials then if youve been using it since V3.
Ive not even started on the new V6 docs/turrials yet, so am not really qualified to say anything on the latest.
Soon though. As soon as the Volcanoes in my life settle down.
