Flux overview

Flux is advanced XHTML and CSS Web design software. You can do Web 2.0, AJAX, and most other buzzword-compliant things. Flux has the following features:

  • Drag-and-drop design of Web pages, you can do almost anything without touching or even seeing XHTML/CSS--but you can meddle with the code if you want
  • Apply cool (or cheesy) effects to images from right within Flux
  • Attach funky javascript actions to your page without having a clue what you're doing
  • Embed Quicktime Movies, Flash, and other objects
  • Edit sites directly off FTP and SFTP

Create the whole site within the WYSIWYG editor, type in XHTML, or a bit of both. You can use one of the supplied templates to get you started, or just stare creatively at a blank page.

At the moment, the developer's website is unreachable, no idea why. Keep an eye out in case this has become abandonware.

I dunno. I bought the full licence but gave up pretty fast because the UI is just so confusing, so busy, I am not a programmer but I am not dumb. Still, there was no continuity or clarity.

Although I bought this software as a full version, I switched to Pinegrow.

The user interface is simply too confusing and not very intuitive. I never had the impression that I could ever use the software properly.

Flux Developer: please, update your software description here in MacUpdate - it looks bad for a company that does software for modern, mobile-first websites to be talking about 'XHTML' and 'Quicktime' and 'Flash'. Also: please update your website, so its layout doesn't break on mobile. Again, it makes you look bad.

Name conflict with F.lux app (https://justgetflux.com) when putting into /Applications. Might be worth addressing this because it is frustrating.

Flux 6 outputs fantastic html/css code, you'll almost think it was handwritten. Kudos to the team, they totally built an app that rivals others.

Learning to code HTML/CSS/Bootstrap is far easier and faster than trying to figure out how to use this piece of software properly. I don’t see a point of spending $100 to make my workflow more confusing and convoluted. Enough said, and yes, it's that bad.

One of the best software trailers, ever. Might bring me back to using Flux. Currently, Pinegrow has me with their WordPress kit.

I used Flux for a while to learn how it did what it did. I also wanted to compare the flow of Dreamweaver vs. Flux vs. Rapidweaver. Clients were asking for web sites and I had to figure out what was easiest to use. For modifying Wordpress, Dreamweaver. For building ready-made sites from templates, Rapidweaver. I never did figure out where Flux fit. So I stopped using it. Then, just recently, they started SPAMVERTIZING their products to the former customers. I explicitly said "Don't contact me" and up until recently, they didn't. I figured they hired some new marketing person who didn't understand "opt-out" or thought there was a statue of limitation on it. They sent me SPAM twice despite saying "We only send email" on their Twitter feed. I looked at their web site and that explains a lot. They also sell a tool to do bulk emailing. So I guess they were dogfooding. I'll steer clear of this company and their products from now on.

Well, I give flux a try with each new version but still it can't get into my daily process because of the UI. It really is counter-productive and I never spent the hours it needs to adopt it. Sure, the idea of flux to sit between easy website creation tools and a fully fledged editor is great but the ui is too complicated to really use it. I am much faster coding my sites by hand. To conclude: if you want to invest a lot of time learning to use flux, it can be a perfect tool but maybe you are faster learning html+css.

I remember paying the full price for Flux 4 and I really never understand how to use it. I want to jump from Rapidweaver, I've been using Espresso lately to work with some pages but I really think Flux will be for someone like me (graphic designer with intermediate knowledge of html5 and CSS3) do you think Flux 6 is good enough to understand and use this time?

I purchased a copy of Flux V in a bundle , and was looking forward to updating to version 6.
Unfortunately, v6 now requires Mac OS X 10.11 - whilst my main iMac is still running 10.10 - and I'm not going to update my flagship anytime soon. what a pity ...

I still see no signs Flux have evolved to the stage where also hand-coders can use it. Can you code really fast in the current version or are there still a ton of dialogs to wade trough as in v.4? I found v.5 very convoluted, if quite attractive as a concept. Personally, lately I've owned Macaw 1.x, which I hated, and found refuge in Espresso, which let's me code SASS, the occasional CSS and HTML5 templates, yet gives me some assistance when I need it without getting in the way. For all other tasks there is Sublime Text, except for my development environment Eclipse of course. Staying away from Flux is still the best bet, right? For people like me that is. I'm sure there are people that can benefit from it.

A very powerful app in the right hands. It is not for the complete beginner wanting to throw a website together a la Rapidweaver. You have to be at least at an intermediate developer level to fully exploit Flux V.

If it exists, this might be a side channel for Flux. But I'm wondering if Flux makes any provision for working in WordPress or Bootstrap? If the app or the templates offer extra utility in these areas? Expanding that a bit, does Flux have special features for making responsive websites?

Steep learning curve, but once you 'get' it, it's the most powerful web design app. A lot cheaper than Dreamweaver and just as good!
