"We will no longer be actively developing the application." Oh.
This is a pretty important piece of information, OP.
Been using Mixture for a while now and can confirm that in it's current state it's a very solid app. Can highly recommend it.
Nice! So many apps and services have been going free over the last few days.
I wonder if it's a direct response to Cactus going free this week.
No. But it is interesting to see they have also done the same.
Recently a lot of similar tools have done this.
I bought this a while back. Solid app but it is really just for shopify liquid templates.
I just started trying to use Mixture today and was confused by its focus on .liquid templates. Have you ever used it for static html projects?
I'm trying to use it for a Foundation build but can't hand off .liquid files to the backend developer that I am working with.
Mixture lets you...
Convert your project to static HTML files (Liquid gives you lots of power to structure your project and is much better than building with static HTML)
But you can also...
- Use straight html files
- Use HAML
- It even lets you use it's features (simple mode) with another server and setup, such as mamp and wordpress.
It's all in the docs and there are example boilerplates to get you up and running quickly with libraries like foundation.
I've been using Mixture for quite some time now and I'm thankful for it on every project. The Liquid template and JSON models features are irreplaceable, and differentiates Mixture from, say, CodeKit – as far as I know. At the same time you don't have to use these features if you don't need them. I think it's definitely worth giving it a try, since it's free now.
That said, it's very sad that the team behind Mixture won't be developing it further. I still hope that it won't just disappear like so many other good projects have…
Bought this app about a year ago and can honestly say it is a very useful tool, would recommend!
