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 may have hand-coded my last static website. Sparkle takes care of technical details and lets you focus on making something that looks good and does what you want it to do. It's about as easy as laying out a document in a word processor. Sparkle has a lot of great built-in features. It is flexible enough to give you full control over your design and opinionated enough to nudge you towards making something that will look really good. This app has been thoughtfully designed not just to make your web design task possible, but to make it easy, to help you along the way.

Can't recommend Sparkle strongly enough! Simple, intuitive, fast, and it works. I'm an artist who paints, with a website that's my online portfolio. Not complex, but I need to be able to add and delete photos or pages or CV information quickly and easily on my own. I'm not a web designer or tech guy--Sparkle lets me focus on what I do, not forcing me to become a developer. I'm another iWeb refugee, Sparkle replaced my previous process of using iWeb on an old laptop, transferring the content via thumb drive to my desktop computer, uploading to Godaddy via FileZilla. Just the upload normally took 10 to 15 minutes. I had to enter all the ftp and password information every time. Recently an important page had been dropped, no idea why, and I could not get that page online even with 1-1/2 hours on the phone with Godaddy. Instead, now I have Sparkle on my desktop. It automatically pulled in my existing website, with just a few hiccups (changed fonts, missing letter space, small stuff). Without instructions, I was able to make the adjustments to my liking, and when I clicked “Publish” and entered the ftp information—only 1 time!—I could not believe how fast the site uploaded. Like, 15 seconds instead of 15 minutes. The site was complete with the missing page. I am sold and will never look back! Hallelujah!

Reading the comments, I find it hard to believe they're real. Sparkle is good; it's very good, but it's not perfect. It certainly does make creating a lively, modern looking site possible without excessive effort or coding knowledge. However, if the site is very large it's page management system isn't convenient as it obliges you to scroll through hundreds of pages to get to the one you want. It has no template creation system, so complex groups of elements have to be rebuilt to repeat them. You can group pages in sections, but they can't be published as folders, so www.mysite.com/section isn't available to users. Make even one small change on any page and all pages are republished (what a waste of time & bandwidth). CSS styles management is flaky (or non existent) as colour swatches are few but reused and font/text styles can't be sort and sequenced. There's more... However I'd prefer Sparkle to all alternatives at the moment.

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.
