I made the move nearly 5 years ago now. Stumbled on Webflow late at night when struggling with a responsive design. Hand coding it was an option but I wanted it to be very fine tuned and spend mostof the time designing, not coding and fixing cross browser bugs. At that time, there was another visual tool called Macaw. I had bought it a week earlier but I was reaching a point where I couldn’t handle the bugs anymore, my work of one week was crippled with dead ends and it was going down the drain. I was stressed, desperate, I was looking for a hand coding framework. Webflow had just launched their Interaction (1.0) feature and that night I read about it… followed the links, try to open an account just to realize I already had signed up before (happens all the time), so when I opened the tool I wasn’t very hopeful… just another I had ditched before. But then it happened.
In a mere couple of hours, I had redone everything I had done in a week with Macaw, only better, fully working with no bugs whatsoever, fine-tuned like I never had the chance to fine tune any other web page, full of things moving, hiding, revealing, with a code that I could understand, with a UI that was focussed on CSS, not magic… I knew I wanted to use this and only this, that night, and not go back to work on Drupal or Joomla or Wordpress. Before getting some sleep, I remember writing a love letter to Webflow because really I was stunned. That was a tool built for me, savvy in HTML and CSS but not in code, not so much in DOM, hosting and a lot of things Webflow handles for you.
This was April 2016 and the begining of a new life. I haven’t been participating in a Drupal project where lazy developers use things like SVN Blame to persuade themselves that you’re responsible for their own mistakes. I don’t miss that.
