RocketCake3.2.0

17 April 2020

Responsive website designer.

Overview

RocketCake is a Web editor for creating responsive Web sites without programming, It is free, but there is also a professional edition for sophisticated users. It has built-in support for all important HTML elements: image galleries, slideshows, resizable containers, stylish buttons, gradients, HTML5 video, audio, and more. It comes with a breakpoint editor, and a handful useful templates.

What's new in RocketCake

Version 3.2:
New gallery:
  • The image gallery component has been mostly rewritten and now includes a ton of new features like:
  • Aspect ratio independent preview thumb images causing all images to look uniform in size even if they aren't
  • Close button icon for opened images (in layers)
  • Non-scrollable background when a layer is open
  • The aspect ratio option is of course configurable, also so that the gallery looks exactly like in previous rocketcake versions
Improved navigation menu:
  • The menu now automatically positions itself so it won't go outside the screen area, no matter how large the menu on your website is. For example when you have a large menu and align it to the right of the page, the dropdown menu now will align itself automatically a bit to the left so that it is fully visible and won't overlap the right screen border anymore.
Hyperlink Previews:
  • When hovering a hyperlink, the target URL of the hyperlink is now displayed as tooltip
Possibility to change HTML IDs:
  • It is now possible to change the HTML Id of every generated code element. This is a feature wanted by a lot of professional users
  • To do this, right-click any element, select "HTML Code...", click the "..." button and select "Change HTML ID...". You will see the change in the code immediately
Updated mobile devices:
  • New devices supported: iPhone 10, Samsung S10, and more. You can select these from the 'View' menu and on the bottom of the editor page
New Templates:
  • The editor now contains some new, lots of improved and more modern free website templates
  • macOS Mojave and Catalina compatibility

RocketCake now runs nicely on Mojave and Catalina. There have been some incompatibilities and bugs introduced by Apple in those macOS versions which RocketCake now detects and works around them. It also supports some new features in those operating systems. In Detail:

Added support for DarkMode:
  • On some systems, comboboxes like the font selection box wouldn't open somtimes. This is fixed now
  • When clicking 'Preview', the Safari browser wasn't able to show the preview files sometimes. This works now
  • The HTML Code and color on the font color buttons weren't visible sometimes. This is no longer an issue
  • Mojave and Catalina had troubles uploading files to sftp sites, this is is fixed now
  • Fixed a problem causing the font height to be displayed wrongly under certain circumstances
  • Fixed a problem causing the background to be shown black sometimes in new button dialog
  • The view with slider on the bottom of the HTML editor view is now a slider instead of a scrollbar
Lots of other improvements:
  • The hint that the mobile menu is auto-generated is now a bit more clearly visible
  • You can now press CTRL+B when text is selected and toggle between bold and non-bold font
  • Numeric text input fields now have no max and min values by default anymore. Also, if the max value is set to the same value as the min value, no max and min values are used, so you can enter arbitrarily long values
  • The MacOS version now looks nicer on retina displays
  • Lots of translations have been improved. The spanish, italian, frensh and russian translations are now much better
  • Fixed a problem where sometimes in the generated HTML, whitespace would appear in some browsers between style changes due to pretty printing
  • Fixed a problem causing Gallery 'next' image button not to work sometimes in Edge browser
  • Fixed a bug causing the web form text field not to retain its mode when set to numeric mode after loading

Luckily a lot of the other apps in the MacUpdate 2016 Spring Bundle are valuable, I wasted time testing this app. It looks like some crappy Windows app. It does not use the Mac's advanced text services, like drag&drop. Text selection does not work right. Making a gallery or slideshow should be easy by dropping a bunch of image files on the container box! This kind of though was done 10 years ago in the Mac! Referring to the Command key as the "Apple key" is just shear lack of Mac app design. Pretty poor implementation of a Mac app. I hope it gets better.

Version: 2.2
Extremely buggy, non-native interface: buttons appear without label, clicking the green 'full-screen' window button makes the entire app go blank, and many other quirks. The fact that the app allows for embedding of 'Flash' content in a modern website is also not encouraging. Needs much more work before it can be useful.

This app allows you to create websites very quickly. It's a no-brainer. But seriously, you really need to make the UI retina. Good for quick jobs, but I can't see it as a professional web design tool.
