This app is UNBELIEVABLY good, easy to use, and well-integrated with professional results. The app's structure is great, intuitive, and lets you unleash your true creativity without having to know some of the more arcane details of "coding" and such. HIGHLY recommend this app!

I was very sad when I heard about Muse’s estimated death, but now I wouldn't go back to Muse because Sparkle works even smoother and easier. I tried every non-template editor there is, but only Sparkle sparks joy :-} The app is great, nice Mac worthy interface with clear documentation. In case of specific questions the Community provides in good, friendly and patient support for newbies! I noticed that remaking my site was fun again, which wasn't the case with Everweb and less with all the other apps I gave a try. I hope to work 25 years with it, like I did with PageMill-GoLive-Muse.

OMG. I just started using Sparkle. I'm hooked. I spent 10 years building websites in iWeb, because I preferred the interface. Then one day, iWeb doesn't work anymore on my new Catalina Macs. Cant even open the files. Tried InDesign. Tried Dreamweaver, Tried Photoshop. They all suck. Then tried Sparkle. All I had to do was copy the URL of my company site (which I needed to update), paste it in and the whole WYSIWYG site showed up, ready for me to update!! Just like in iWeb!! No rebuilding! Just had to relink my video files from Vimeo. Sparkle, you saved my web design career.

I've tried literally every Mac-based web-design editor that's existed: iWeb, Everweb, Freeway Pro and web-based editors like WiX (stay away from them, they've gone totally belly-up in reliability). Sparkle Pro is by far the easiest, most intuitive and stable platform for site design that I've ever used. Tech support is readily available and responds quickly. The interface makes sense; things "just work". And unlike web-based editors there's no waiting for the interface to update while you upload every file needed to build your site. Just drag-n-drop to your canvas and go to work. The two things I just LOVE the most about Sparkle, is the immediate and accurate previews available using whatever browser you want and; the built-in FONT catalog and browser. The easiest, most logical font-type selector I've ever seen in ANY application Forget about Squarespace, Wix, Weebly, Everweb...whatever. Get this app and watch how your site "sparkles". See how I did that little play on words? hahaha

Intuitive and fast UI. The best front-side web design tool ever since using Cyberstudio Golive and iWeb.

I already left a very favourable comment after trying it last year here, but would like to ask a question though, have anybody had experience with Sparkle building an e-commerce site, an online store ? or is it better to go with sites like Shopify, bigCartel, wix..etc. ?

Over the years I have used virtually every web site creation tool available for both Mac and PC. The last few sites I have used Sparkle, and I am now converting older sites to Sparkle as well. This has got to be one of the easiest packages around, it makes very modern looking sites very easy to accomplish in a short time. I love the ability to have multiple layouts for different devices.

I am just blown away about the functionality of this app and how efficient I can create modern Web2.0 and 3.0 websites. I am a professional webdesigner who coded the templates and used Wordpress and Drupal. It is a very tedious process to have something launched in an efficient manner. Honestly the customer won't pay all the time and at the end they don't want to even touch the CMS. SO I went back to basic, satitic HTML with some emdeded life features as e-commerce and blogging,but the programming effort is immense. So i went out and investigated that web and looked anbd tested at probably every single Website Builder app for the Mac. Some resctricts you as hell, some you need to have a doctor title to understand the handling and some not worth the money. Then i found Sparkle that i had eactuallt already installed for 2 years and forgot about, i started it and felt easy to use straight away. First I thought it looks too cheap probably i cannot even build a decent website. After study some quick videos I saw the imennse functionality and use in this program. Now I am creating website one page in 1-2 websites per day, so mega easy. And the best is you don't need to care about maintenance, SEO or security updates, everything build in. Can highly recommend this app it will change your way how to create website effenciently.

I bought the less expensive Sparkle software (since my web site is small and not a business) and am very pleased with it. It goes well beyond what I was capable of doing with iWeb, with much greater ease. But what I want to emphasize here is the top notch tech support when I was converting from iWeb to Sparkle and publishing a web site. The same tech support person (Duncan) stuck with me via email for almost a full day on back and forth emails. He was able to help me negotiate the pitfalls one might encounter when changing web building software and then publishing the site to my domain server, GoDaddy. You can't go wrong with either product and the quality tech support.
