Beta release of Pinegrow Web Designer 1.2 is available for download on http://pinegrow.com, featuring:
– Better Edit code – Visual page synchronization
– Support for Revolution Slider and Bootstrap Carousel
– Bug fixes
The unpleasant side-effect of that was that when the HTML file was saved all dynamic modifications were saved alongside the HTML code. In best case scenario this just added clutter to the source and in worst it broke the page completely.
Starting with Pinegrow 1.2 we do things differently. Pinegrow now has its own source parser and source manipulation engine that knows how to distinguish source HTML from the current dynamic DOM structure that is rendered by the browser.
For this to work Pinegrow needs to load local files through an internal web server that is running on port 40000 by default (changeable in Support -> Settings).
We switched to CodeMirror for the internal code editor (before we used Ace editor). Synchronization between edit code view and the page is also faster and more precise (when you click on a element on the page, its code will be selected in the editor).
Bootstrap Carousel support works in the same way and is included in Bootstrap plugin.
Pinegrow 1.2 Beta is a pre-release software. It is recommended to use it with file backup option switched on and to keep a separate installation for Pinegrow 1.15.
This Beta release has a couple of limitations:
– no Foundation support yet
– only one window / app instance can run at the same time
– no loading files from url yet
With this we’ll be back on frequent release schedule. Release of Pinegrow 1.2 is planned for the middle of September. Release version will also include support for the latest versions of Bootstrap and Foundation. Bootstrap 2.x will not be supported any more. If you need to use it keep Pinegrow 1.15 installed alongside the 1.2+.
Please use our support portal docs.pinegrow.com to report any bugs and mention BETA in the title field.
Thank you all for your continued interest and support for Pinegrow!
