I guess that web developers/designers around the world are feeling the effects of A.I.

 

Have a look at https://durable.co/

Wappler, the only real Dreamweaver alternative.

As far as l can see there are no examples of websites built with this thing, durable. I tend to be suspect these days given where we are at, cheap and cheerful. No doubt these kinds of workflows will attract those with little money to spend, which will obviously filter through the system and make those web developers with little skill or knowledge, beyond using frameworks, libraries and plugin, redundant. Gone are the days when web developers could make money by building simple websites from a template and just shoe-horning images and content into pre-determined spaces. It's been slowly happening for years, as automation takes more and more chunks of work away.

Sure there are: https://durable.co/blog/best-ai-generated-websites

AI at its best!

Edited (Been flashing away like a crazy disco for 5hrs now, never seen anything like it! ) - a client side exception has occured, whatever that entails, lol.

 

As for the other examples they really are no improvement on whats been available for years and years, simple pre-built off-the-shelf template designs.........which can be purchased for a few dollars...........from 'reputable' online sources...........hummm. Might put a few template designers out of work but the results, from what Ive seen, are hardly anything a professional web-developer should be concerned about.

 

I think the focus of professional developers these days has moved on and the money is in bespoke app building that these automated workflows can't begin to offer. There's more money for less work if a company seriously wants a bespoke workflow/component built. Theres no money to be made in building low-end applications these days, just having a bit of knowledge of html and css doesnt cut it any longer. Most who use these automated workflows are penniless start-ups - Im sure if they grow they will need the help of a professional to meet their needs or they are likely to remain your average 'joe', struggling to turn a profit like so many others.

Yes, I am thinking seriously moving to Wappler one day, I just need to get a free trial of the pro version which offers server side components. 

  • I am viewing live view the browser from the browser app.
  • I don‘t trust how it is rendered in the DW live view.
  • Either on DW live view or browser live view, updates to files many times are not updated inmediatly, or problem with my MAMP app?
  • To match the canvas live view with the code view, on a divided screen, is hard. Most of the times I have to go to the code view and scroll to see whta I need to edit. 
  • Everytime I have to do ⌘ + Y in Brave to delete the history and see if the upadate is really updated or I was coding wrong.
  • Finally, a warning about the dynamic related files. Yes, if I use an external library, ususally it has hundreds of CSS files, which I will not modify, I don‘t need to see them, it makes my selecty list very long. I am looking for a way to filter that, so I could see just the related files I really need, not all. 

I thnk Adobe has to improve the performance of DW, don‘t let me swap to another app, why I don‘t have many problems with its other apps? Is it possible for Adobe to make its own engine like Sublime Text and not suffer with browser issues? 

 

However, I‘d like to read some articles about DW; actually I don‘t find them. It is like mystery app, I just find videos of how to do this and that but nobody discuss in deep the real problems. Reflection of sunday.

Highly unlikely. Dreamweaver is not receiving any new features except minimal security & compatibility updates.  It's in minimal maintenance mode.

That's because DW's userbase has dwindled substantially over the last 10-15 years.

Few professional design companies use it anymore. Even fewer companies want to spend time teaching anyone how to use a dying application. The program has been on its deathbed for years, in reality. Well before Adobe moved it to "minimum development status", they had been stripping anything of real value from it and adding whiz-bang, marketing-ploy junk for nearly a decade.

It went from a powerhouse to terminally ill over that time. Now it's on life support for the remaining DW holdouts who want to keep using it. How long Adobe decides to keep it there, before pulling the plug and letting it go, is unknown.

It's a bit sad, especially for those who remember its Macromedia heyday, but it's the way it is.

My only suggestion, for those who rely on DW, is to learn how to code. Use DW and spend the time needed understanding what it's doing in the background. That way, you can move forward with whatever program you choose once Adobe closes the doors on DW for good.
