Fun way to build responsive websites.

Overview

Landscape is a fun new way for OS X users to build responsive websites that look great on all platforms. It's easy enough for even young kids to use, while containing many features for professional web page designers. Landscape lets you build web pages by dragging-and-dropping any type of file (including Photoshop!) in a freeform environment, to quickly assemble web pages.

To add text, just type anywhere. A simple Desktop/Tablet/Phone switch lets the user change layouts for each page. The end result is a web site that all modern browsers will render in an almost identical fashion.

  • Landscape features tightly integrated Google Font support, so if you're using any of over 600 Google Fonts, it will detect them and embed code in your page so the viewer's browser will display it properly.
  • Landscape also automatically builds light boxes if you've designated any images as Lightbox images. It's one checkbox in the info window, and Landscape does all the rest.
  • Similarly, it features tight integration with Facebook, so adding a Facebook image preview to any page is simply a matter of checking off an item in the info window.
  • The Background and Hidden modes let you treat webpage design easier, by making it so you can't accidentally drag background elements around while laying out foreground elements. You can hide elements or drag them past a barrier, and they won't be rendered on platforms of your choosing.
  • Landscape has several unique tools, including a knife for slicing up existing images and websites. The knife will let you take any already built website, and quickly create a new version of it that works on more platforms.
  • The mind mapping tool will let you quickly create site charts, org charts, flow charts, and mind maps.

What's new in Landscape

Version 1.4:
  • Increased WC3 compliance. With the exception of third party html, Landscape's main HTML and CSS should be fully WC3-compliant now.
  • Addressed some CSS concerns. There are still some CSS issues, but most stem from vendor names, and I'm looking into what can be done there.
  • Increased awareness of other pages in the same site - linking now detects other landscape pages and lists them in a popup menu
  • I removed the incorrect alt tags for images, and changed those to title tags in the HTML. Why? Because the technique I'm using to make images load super fast on mobile devices doesn't lend itself to using an alt tag. This should suffice though.
  • Fixed an issue where page background colors were slightly wrong. This also fixes one of the WC3-compliance bugs as well, where a page could have an RGB value of 256,256,256.
  • Added new Facebook Comments feature: http://landscapeftw.blogspot.com/2015/10/landscape-facebook-comments-system.html

It should be, but it was written with a slightly older version of Landscape.

I'll be redoing it this week though, so I'd like your feedback on it after the update, if you get a chance.

Thanks!

Ooookay, that was a huge mistake on my part, and it should be fixed. Thanks for pointing that out!
