    Worth trying!

    I've seen it today. I, like many others use a text editor for HTML coding. Every now and then I keep wondering if a WYSIWYG tool wouldn't speed up my workflow though. At least for quick layouts / basic structure, an app like this, somehow minimalist, could be just the right tool. I bought it, on impulse.

    I like it has an user created objects/snippet templates library – which can prove highly useful (I guess there are other tools who have this, I'm seeing this for this time, though :) It also has a quick mobile devices preview. Also, a source code panel, but view only mode :/ – hope it's included in the product roadmap.

    While reading the HN article I also stumbled over Pingendo (free, online demo here) – it has a similar feature set as Bootstrap Studio, including Bootstrap classes. This one has html and css/less code editor.

    Then I found Pinegrow which supports Foundation and! WordPress - but it's a tad more expensive.

    Choices, choices :/

    I'm thinking about getting this, especially since it is 50% - however I would be very happy if other users could share their experiences and the pro & cons of Bootstrap Studio.

    Btw: I'm also using webflow, which is great but very limited when it comes to flexibility. How well does bootstrap studio in terms of extending it with additional JS plugins, etc ?

    Or is it just useful for initial page structuring and mock-ups ?

      I would say it still has a way to go before it becomes a full-fledged IDE for making web sites. Bootstrap obviously includes a lot of the JS you would need to do some things but it doesn't have a built-in way to include other extensions, etc.

      The updates to Bootstrap Studio have been very good and the momentum is there. It is likely worth the investment of just $25 to see how you would use it and watch it improve.

    I've used Bootstrap Studio a few times to mock up some ideas or working prototypes before moving them into my normal development environment and workflow. These latest updates will make it easier to make more complete mock ups since 2.0 allows better JavaScript and CSS editing.
