How to Ditch Dreamweaver: Build Websites from Scratch w/ Flux - 64% off

A few weeks ago, we offered a deal to Lifehacker readers for an e-learning bundle on Adobe CC. We got tons of comments about how people were done with Adobe - the Creative Cloud is just too expensive! So, we're back with a deal to help you ditch Adobe: 64% off Flux 4, a powerful web design app for Mac.

Flux 4 is a WYSIWYG editor (one of Lifehacker's favorites!). WYSIWYG, an acronym for "What You See Is What You Get," means that you can see what the end result will look like while creating - it's is a very helpful feature. Flux will be easier to pick up if you understand the basics of CSS, but it's still perfect for beginners as there's no coding necessary!

Features:

  • Flux 4 is an HTML5 capable editor that also handles HTML, PHP, Ruby, and other languages
  • Includes quick-start templates so you don't have to start building from scratch
  • Flux has both a Drag and Drop interface for easy editing (visual front end for your code) and a terminal for hand coding
