Flux

7.1.1130 October 2018

Advanced Web-design tool.

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.

Tried it for an hour or so and purchased immediately. The WYSWYG editing view renders existing CSS based webpage layouts surprisingly accurately, while giving me a complete control over HTML/PHP/CSS code. In a way it's basically like Firefox with Web Developer plug-in's CSS layout "Outline" feature with drag & drop editing capability added to it, a DOM inspector along with Dreamweaver-ish Code View - Design View integration. You click on any elements in WYSWYG and it would take you straight to the actual code when the code window is open. Even CSS-based multilevel menu works in WYSWYG editing menu. Double-click on a DIV tag in WYSWYG view and it would bring up a window for click-and-select easy editing. I find this kind of decent CSS layout visualization WITH editing capability (not just preview or rendering common among coder-centric editors) a godsend for visual oriented developers. Unlike Rapidweaver, iWeb, Sandvox and Freeway, it can work with any existing generic CSS-based web sites created in other applications without any special modifications, simply by dragging and dropping a folder containing HTML/CSS files onto Flux icon, (just like BBEdit, Coda, etc.) It does a pretty decent job of not breaking any existing codes written outside the program. I was able to download a few free CSS design templates (Template Monster, etc.) and use it in Flux to quickly create a whole web site without any problems, and I was also able to use a Flux-generated site in Dreamweaver without doing any additional tweaks. This program can be used in conjunction with other tools. It still has a way to go in fully supporting CMS WYSWYG layout editing such as WordPress, etc. but it looks like it's getting there, and I think it might grow to become a "Dreamweaver killer" on the Mac in the future. Either way, it does a fantastic job as a v.2.x product, and it has a huge potential. Great value for the money, a welcome addition to my toolkit. Strongly recommended.

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.

Their about us page is broken, too. When you click on an image of one of the founders is says, "This image failed to load." There seem to be issues like this on their site every time they update the app. It's like they don't pay enough attention to details. Unfortunate.
It is an interesting app, but overall I've found Pinegrow to be far better in use, functionality, and code produced.

They also want you to go see their 'screencasts'. All screencasts are for version 6 - apparently there are no videos yet of version 7...

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.
