contrary to the negativity experienced from the developers of this software, I'm having a lot of success creating a great website with this.
Best alternatives are Dreamweaver + Adobe Edge Animator
And honestly even IF i had the money to buy the latest versions of both of these once edge goes fully live commercial... I would prefer to still build sites in Construct 2.
All construct 2 needs to turn it into an amazing website software far superior to anything that Dreamweaver and Edge can offer are :
- Proper alignment and distribution tools.
- An officially supported DIV plugin that works with the Scale Letterbox setting and allows you to enter new content directly over the canvas.
*currently the existing 3rd party plugin does work but it jiggles around a bit kind of like shifting sand in an earthquake*
With those minor upgrades, you will have no problems with Google crawling your website AND I gotta say, I'm rebuilding a site I made using a combination of Dreamweaver and Edge... What I had done took about 2 weeks using the professional grade software and it's taken me roughly 3 days to surpass all my efforts using construct.
People ask why you would want to use construct 2 for websites.. just look at the facts...
It's far superior for workflow and you can quickly generate some amazing results. Time is our most valuable asset and I'm not interested in wasting mine on professional software that does not perform to the same standard as Construct already can in the same duration of time.
I can imagine that these upgrades I have mentioned would be useful for other purposes within construct than just website creation as well.
Say you want to make an interactive story book... No longer do you have to use the space bar 100 times just to bump texxt to the next line.. you simply use a < b >
