Impossible I say. Witchcraft I say.
The editor, in effect, is an “absolute positioning” editor…
But the code the editor creates, has no inline styles, and is simply:
Bare-bones clean code!
I can create an element in the editor, and drag it anywhere on the screen. I can do that, fast, easily, and with the fewest amount of clicks—simply because the editor I’m doing all that in, is “some kind” of absolute positioning editor. And yet!..
The code that the “absolute positioning” editor creates, is crystal-freaking clean code!
- I’ve got divs…
- I’ve got classes…
- I’ve got no inline styles in the divs!
Those three things… I’ve never gotten them before—so easily—from any “absolute positioning” editor. Ever!
- Webflow creates code as clean as sparkle’s, but it’s editor isn’t an absolute positioning editor.
- Wix’s old editor is a pure absolute positioning editor, but the code it creates is as messy as it gets.
- Unbounce & Instapage have better absolute positioning editors than Wix, but again, can’t create clean code.
I could go on and on.
I have no idea how this app works. I didn’t think what this app does—so darned well—was possible.
All I know is the existence of this app is a web development engineering marvel.
Am I the only one who’s noticed this? Is there a catch or something?
Bottom line. I’m totally amazed.
Bravo Sparkle team.
