A few words about our sponsors:

(by the way, you can see another Basekit review from Website-Builder)

It seems that every few weeks another web application comes along promising to revolutionize the entire world. Occasionally they do, but most don’t quite have the impact they promise and some just fizzle out.

BaseKit don’t want to revolutionize the entire world. What they want to do is make life easier for those who are unable to code or don’t want to. Unlike before, they can build a website with maximum design in minimum time.

BaseKit allows you to create a website in Photoshop, so that designers can illustrate their creative flair to its full potential without being restricted by the boundaries of coding. They’ve found that creating a great looking Photoshop design is the fun part of building a site. Slicing, turning it into code, adding functionality, uploading to a server and actually getting it online isn’t so great.

BaseKit takes that process and makes it as simple as possible. It’s as straightforward as flattening your PSD, splitting it into named layers and uploading it to BaseKit.

You can also drag fully functional widgets such as galleries, forms, Twitter feed, videos etc into the site, edit the design on the fly and publish to the web with two clicks. Your site is now online and the code is W3C web compliant.

Recently they launched their Plastic release with great functionality improvements, such as new Embed Widget, which allows you to embed your own Javascript code (or other HTML) directly onto your BaseKit page. In addition, you can easily embed 3rd party widget (from providers like Google or Widgetbox), or craft your own widgets directly in BaseKit. Furthermore, you can also add scripts to the header or body of your site by visiting the Page Options lightbox. The Embed widget opens up BaseKit to a full range of services like E-commerce, AdSense, music players and more.

  1. I’m a design student and I’m still learning about converting PS to code. I know how to use Dreamweaver and code using that, but it would be really amazing to speed up the learning curve.

  2. I have developed and managed websites for more than 10 years. When I started as a managing editor at the LA Daily News, we hand coded the newspaper website every day (we made our own templates, of course). Since then, I have used a variety of content management programs, sticking in HTML when the cms didn’t do what I wanted. Several years ago, I did learn css and built one website with it (it’s no longer online) and experimented on my own. I’ve been unemployed for almost two years now, freelance editing, web developing (Joomla) and other odd jobs too keep going. I mostly use Dreamweaver CS4, but rely on my own coding knowledge to keep track of things. Well now there is html5, CSS3 and I learned javascript to be able to tweak existing code.

    A program like BaseKit would be an enormous help to me, especially if I have to keep freelancing. Thank you for sponsoring this offer.
