Pub lish­ing

You made it. But how do you pub­lish it?

Mac Format - - RATED | MAC APPS -

One of the things that made iWeb so easy to use was its tight in­te­gra­tion with the nowde­funct .Mac ser­vice, en­abling in­stant and ef­fort­less site pub­lish­ing. It also had FTP for up­load­ing to your own web space.

In com­par­i­son, EverWeb of­fers pub­lish­ing via FTP, although an­noy­ingly you need to sign in with your (free) EverWeb ac­count to do it and it nags you about copy­right too. RapidWeaver and Free­Way Pro sup­port up­load­ing via FTP, SFTP and FTPS, Sand­vox lo­cal pub­lish­ing or upload via FTP, SFTP or We­bDAV, and We­bA­cap­pella FTP, SFTP, FTPS and con­nec­tion to MySQL data­bases and PHP mail func­tions.

To pre­view your site, EverWeb, We­bA­cap­pella and Free­Way Pro call whichever browser you pre­fer – in the lat­ter you can also pre­view your site in­side the app and test screen res­o­lu­tions. Flux has in­te­grated pre­view and live pre­view for datadriven con­tent, RapidWeaver has in­te­grated pre­view with op­tions to test for iPads and iPhones. Sand­vox has in­te­grated pre­view too.

All of the apps we tested make it easy to upload to your own web space us­ing FTP.
