CoffeeCup Software

The software developed by the CoffeeCup Software company is recommended for the more advanced user. Their software is inexpensive and trial versions are available to test before use. CoffeeCup Software began in an actual coffee shop in 1994 and its first product was a simple yet powerful HTML Editor which remains DoveSoft's HTML editor of choice. An interesting feature of the HTML Editor is support for Markdown which offers a simplified alternative to HTML (hyper text markup language)

CoffeeCup's unique selling point is responsive software as the plethora of mobile machines and web access has caused a shift in the way the web is consumed. The only way to assure a consistent experience across all these devices is a design that adjusts or ‘responds’ to the available display space. Not by zooming out, that would make everything unusably small, but by reorganising the content and scaling where appropriate. Indeed responsive design proved to not only be an exciting, but also the only viable solution. The features of responsive web design (RWD) do NOT include:-
  • Using just a fluid design, that only squishes your content is not responsive,
  • Building a site on a template with (two) fixed predetermined breakpoints, is not responsive,
  • Being unable to adjust or add breakpoints for your specific content needs, is not responsive.

There are many aspects to responsive design and CoffeeCup are dedicated to bring you the tools you’ll need to master them all. For example, their latest product is a Responsive Content Slider as illustrated below. Other products include flagship Site Designer, CSS Grid BuilderResponsive Email Designer, Foundation Framer, Bootstrap Builder,  Web Form Builder and Menu Builder.

CoffeeCup are moving full speed ahead into the next projects and developing solutions that solve responsive design challenges is a serious and time consuming job. A Responsive WordPress Designer is coming soon but visit their site for details of all their numerous products.

Responsive web design (RWD) is an approach to web design aimed at crafting sites to provide an optimal viewing experience—easy reading and navigation with a minimum of resizing, panning, and scrolling—across a wide range of devices (from desktop computer monitors to mobile phones).

Responsive design is different and more tedious than a lot of people think. Responsive design is NOT making a few tweaks at two arbitrary screen widths. Responsive wireframing is NOT making wireframes for one desktop, one tablet, and one mobile screen size.
Responsive design and wireframing is making your design look good, and assuring your layout and content are usable on big desktop monitors, television screens, small smart phones.
