Thanks for posting Marc, Im the creator :)
Not a problem! Great idea and execution. Good luck with the launch. :D
OK, first... this is completely awesome!.
Second... How does this fit into my gulp webpack SCSS babel jekyll asset pipeline?
I'm also curious about this, and naturally others too. If I write Vue, how can I see my work put together through Solis?
Compile your site down into server side code and get Solis to listen to the localhost or an individual HTML file for changes. Push your changes to the same location and Solis will refresh.
I can’t give you a response about Jekyll, but for Hugo, you could just run the Hugo local dev server and point Solis at that. It basically means you just need to fire up Hugo server and open Solis to see everything.
As for SCSS, I’m just using CodeKit (which is awesome) to rebuild on changes.
Disclaimer: I am very much a part time web front end dev, but I think Solis would work for me.
This is a feature should be an embedded feature in browsers. Nice one.
I think browser sync should be embedded too.
I agree, but I think it would also be good if Norm got a chance to make a little bit of cash from the idea before it’s used in other places.
Oh, ofc I wish same. I was trying to praise the tool itself :D
Take my money.
This looks really interesting.
Is this compatible with Local by Flywheel? For Wordpress development.
To be honest Im not sure (I've never used Local before), Solis does have an unlimited trial mode so give it a shot.
No, doesn't look like it is. That's a real shame.
It may be something I can add support for. Was it the local host url structure?
Yeah, http://localhost is added by default so adding anything else in ruined it for me.
well keep an eye on the app, Im already working on opening that out.
"Looks awesome, I'm gonna downl... dam it, just MAC!"
I guess I'll just admire from a far :(
Make sure you check out the brilliant intro video if you aren't already sold! https://vimeo.com/261342910
Curious if this supports SCSS/LESS previews on Ember running on localhost?
Wait I can't try the Free trial without paying for it?
Free trial is at the bottom of the page. Dark patterned!
This looks incredible, and yet another app making me sad that I'm still on a PC.
Isn't this what Coda does? From Panic software? Keep in mind I'm a very casual developer, I might just be ignorant of the technicalities. Is it special because of the multiple previews at once?
Yeah and the fact it’s not locking you to a single code editor.
I use and love Coda, but I don’t think it has multiple preview sizes at once.
What browser does this most closely map to? Chrome? Safari? I assume this is using Webkit to render the viewports.
The Site mentions the Webkit Dev tools (and chrome uses Blink now) so 100% Safari. but that's okay. Chrome is still very webkit-like in behavior and most mobile traffic is Webkit...sooo...
I use Espresso, a code editor with this feature built in (works really well), but this looks like a great option if you love a different editor like Sublime.
Live editing and previewing is worlds better than making changes in the web inspector and trying to copy over to your CSS/SCSS files.
