How do you ac­tu­ally build your web­site?

Mac Format - - RATED | MAC APPS -

All of the pro­grams here use the familiar choose-a-tem­plate ap­proach, but there are big dif­fer­ences be­tween what’s on of­fer. EverWeb has 32 brochure-style tem­plates in a range of sec­tors, while Free­way Pro has a hand­ful of email and pre­sen­ta­tion tem­plates and eight generic site tem­plates.

RapidWeaver presents five themes at startup (52 are ac­tu­ally in­stalled, but that’s not im­me­di­ately ob­vi­ous), We­bA­cap­pella has nine shops and 15 kinds of busi­ness sites, Flux has 28 star­tlingly pretty de­signs cov­er­ing ev­ery con­ceiv­able site in­clud­ing iTunes Ex­tras and iTunes LPs. And Sand­vox has 64 de­signs that re­mind us of Pow­er­Point tem­plates.

Edit­ing and cre­at­ing pages in EverWeb, RapidWeaver and Sand­vox is sim­ple, in­tu­itive and very iWork-y. Free­way and We­bA­cap­pella will be ob­vi­ous to any­body who’s ever laid out a doc­u­ment in a DTP app or de­signed some­thing nice in Pages, while Flux makes it easy to find your way around code and style sheets and to see ex­actly what’s go­ing on in your project.

All of the apps of­fer a range of tem­plates, but the qual­ity dif­fers widely.
