While Pinegrow might initially seem like the right website builder for your needs, it’s no match for more popular website builders like Wix.
A quick look at the Pinegrow Web Editor reveals a sweet blend of a user-friendly visual editor and robust coding functionality. The sleek, powerful desktop web editor allows users to build responsive websites via a WYSIWYG-like platform that also allows you to tweak any bit of code you want. Featuring live multi-page editing as well as support for Bootstrap, Foundation, and WordPress, the Pinegrow Web Editor is designed for users comfortable coding with HTML & CSS but who also want to be able to see changes in real-time.
Users can start off with one of the beautifully-designed themes available, then click on any piece of content they’d like to edit. You can use the drag-and-drop feature, insert HTML elements, add scripts, or edit code elements: the Pinegrow Web Editor is packed with rich features, and it seems every feature has been included as a solution to its user needs. The downside is that their R&D team seems to be racing ahead of their customer support team: their database of support articles and videos don’t really correspond with their frequently-released updates, and often seem to refer to older versions of the software. That said, if you’re good at figuring things out on your own and you like your software to always be updated with the latest standards, you may find their investment into R&D a good fit for you.
Pinegrow has two main payment models: a one-time payment which allows you to use the software forever and comes with a year of free updates, or a monthly subscription plan at an affordable cost. There are also bulk discounts available for teams looking to purchase Pinegrow.
