Hi Dexter :)
What you can use is our new cross-site copy/paste feature. You can create one site to be the master style guide and copy/paste that into other sites in your account.
Hope this helps
opps thanks :)
Hi Brennan :D
At the moment we have no plans to change our hosting prices. Our hosting can seem expensive when you compare it with shared hosting that sells for a few dollars a month, but with our many features (SSL, form support, custom search engine, regular backups/versioning, plus a whole CMS for editing content) and our top class performance/reliability, we compare ourselves much closer to managed hosting solutions — many of which are more expensive by comparison.
As for support for annual payments via Client Billing, yes, this is something we have on our backlog of improvements and do plan to work on this.
Hi Marcel :smile: Good question.
As of right now, Webflow does make a lot of freelancers lives easier. But for features that could make our lives even more easier? We are already working on those features. :slightlysmilingface:
Yes, stuff like our unique CMS, designer tool and our ecommerce feature are featured that others have already tackled. But if you look deeper, we've always taken a different approach that helped lots of designers do things they wouldn't have thought of doing on their own without code.
What I, personally, think would be the next game changing feature will be for Webflow is our custom components, which will allow you to maintain larger design systems more easily, without always worrying about traditional BEM style class naming.
Just like how the iPhone changed the game for smartphones, it wasn't until the App store was launched did we see bigger changes in the world.
This is what I envision for Webflow's future. The community creating things our own team would have never thought of.
Hi Jim :) great question.
CSS Grid is coming soon to Webflow. Here is a screenshot teaser of what it may look like. I saw an internal demo of this and its pretty exciting and I can't wait to see what you do with it.
As for integrating with other JS frameworks, I don't think there are plans yet. But that may happen when we open up the platform to user made components.
Hi Jonathan :D
We’re thinking long term about pricing as we move closer to releasing ecommerce, plus some of our more secretive long term plans, but we don’t have any massive structural rehauls in the works.
I’m curious: what about our pricing specifically is a “hurdle” for you recommending Webflow further?
Hi Zsolt! :) Thanks for your question.
Yes, that announcement page is beautiful. It just comes to show what is now possible with Webflow when a Graphic designer and content strategist team up to execute on creative ideas and not have to rely on a developer.
As for the direction of Webflow, we’re working on adding more functionality to enable non-coders to add more advanced functionality. Things like ecommerce, custom components, and user systems (login/registration/custom dashboards) would be easily added without code.
Hi Spenser :) Great question.
Yes! Webflow isn't planning on stopping at just CMS or ecommerce. Just like Vlad said i our latest quarterly community live Q&A, we will be opening the app up to developers who would like to create their own component for Webflow.
We also want to create features that will let sites have their own user system without having designers having to write any backend code.
Vlad also mentioned that the team has only completed about 5% of the long-term vision. We have a lot more planned :)
