Can you tell us a bit about yourself and your business ?
My duty varies from a simple website fix to various programming tasks. Mainly I program WordPress themes when our graphic designers provide me with mock ups.
When and how did you discover Pinegrow?
Last year, I was designing a kiosk for a local store; I programmed a small ordering kiosk that utilizes Google App Engine to handle the backend.
When I was programming the front end I decided to use Bootstrap to speed up the process.
I come from more traditional programming background (C, Java, Python etc.), so it took me a while to understand how big bootstrap really was. During this time, I found out that there were multiple GUI editors specifically developed for Bootstrap.
One of them was Pinegrow, when I used it, it was no brainer for me to make the purchase.
Which applications have you used before Pinegrow?
What is your “typical workflow” with Pinegrow?
- Once I receive a mockup from graphic designers, I start with styling. I use SASS and have it watch for the change.
- After I add a quick typographic styles and some, I start adding element to the document (like navigation bars, header images and so on) in Pinegrow, trying to get visually close to the mockup as possible.
- Also, as I’m adding these elements to the document, I simultaneously work on SASS as well.
- When the majority of static elements are in place, I do a quick theme export to preview it on the local WordPress server.
This is something I came up with: I make a file called function.html that has index.html as a master page, also doesn’t export. There I put all the Custom Post Types,Taxonomies,css,js so on. This case, function.php are taken care of on export.
Once that’s done, I usually make templates for different pages if necessary. I usually work in my text editor (Sublime Text 3) during this stage, however, I do utilize many features that Pinegrow provides. Like quick php inserts, like or and so on.
Lots of save->re-export->refresh the site to see the result->repeat, also more additional styling as needed.
What features do you use most often?
Which of Pinegrow features would you like to see improved?
WordPress related features and especially style.css. I would like to be able to edit and save style.css information like author,author’s url, description and stuff…
Also, I would love a quick way to add screenshot.png (see our course to learn how to proceed)
Can you show us a quick sample of your past achievements with Pinegrow?
