Before I get into a simple question let me setup my background so you understand my knowledge - and lack of:
I’m neither a web-designer nor code-monkey. I cut my teeth on iWeb, frustrated myself for months trying to learn Freeway Pro, spent a minute with Muse, spent a second with EverWeb, had been using WiX for about 3 years and just dumped it for Sparkle. Couldn’t be happier; in the process of doing a ground-up rebuild for both my company sites which are offline because I wanted to be off WiX entirely and immediately. (Why I bolted from WiX is another thread entirely…)
Because I’m not the guy who will ever learn something deep like Dreamweaver I’m always hunting for new tools that will allow me to concentrate on the creative and not constantly fighting the app to do things the way my swiss-cheese brain works.
I recently saw a thread from an experienced web-designer (can’t find the thread now) who was making comparisons between Sparkle and Blocs; it ended up being a wash between capabilities, but he kept going on about how sites in Sparkle aren’t truly “responsive” nor “mobile optimized”. ??
This throws me because I thought the whole point of “viewpoints” or “breakpoints” was to create a responsive site. Am I not understanding what “responsive” is supposed to mean?
For example in WiX, when you build for the desktop you switch to the mobile editor and “fix” how their software automatically places items, i.e. text size, element location/size etc.
To me this is fairly similar to how Sparkle handles things - so how is it that it’s not responsive to the viewers?
If it’s a simple answer, refer to my opening paragraph about my lack of expertise in this area…
(PS - I did try the demo of Blocs; I can see where it’s got some capabilities over Sparkle but good god… the learning curve I can’t justify and, Sparkle lets me create my layout in a way my brain can understand. Capiche?)
