Macaw is a next-generation web development software that eliminates the hassle of coding by hand. It helps website developers create site mockups and generate working codes to build from. Users can preview their sites in real time by setting different break points or dragging the canvas edge. Moving elements around provides a closer look at mockup sites. Macaw has an intuitive interface that beginners will find easy to use. The platform identifies potential errors and makes suggestions on how to fix them.

Macaw Benefits

Mobile-first development is a breeze: Macaw allows creators to preview what their websites will look like. It does away with the annoying tendency of making mockup sites for different screens in different Illustrator art boards or Photoshop files.

Customizable grid: This helps keep artists’ designs tidy. When moving objects around the page, Macaw shows numbers that dictate their position relative to other elements on the page. Users can fine-tune specific objects at the top of the screen as well as layout pages with absolute, static or relative positioning.

Multiple aspects of CSS styling: Macaw offers many aspects of CSS styling along with well-designed controls. This allows designers to adjust fonts, change the padding, add drop shadows, change borders and more.

Responsive design: This is particularly important because web pages need to render well on different screen sizes and mobile devices. Macaw supports responsive design and allows users to alter a page’s layout based on display width.

Robust typography settings: Macaw offers dozens of pre-loaded Google Fonts. Users can enjoy consistent typography. The platform also allows Typekit users to import fonts into their projects.
