Flux is an advanced HTML5 Web Design application, capable of creating stunning sites from scratch. Flux isn't a template based solution, it's a creative design environment. Flux has comprehensive support for HTML and CSS, including Image Maps, CSS Gradients, custom fonts, and almost everything else.

 

 

 

 
"I arrived to Flux 3 from iWeb. It isn't as easy to use as iWeb, but offers much more freedom to design the site. After the iWeb was killed by Apple, I searched for a not-too-expensive solution and I tried Sandvox, Rapidweaver and Flux and I like Flux more than the other two. Now that I have version 4, it is the best :) It isn't very easy to learn and I find myself working in the code window more often than I'd like to, but the result is getting better with every new page I make :) 
 
And, as a side note, I will surely upgrade to v5 when it will appear ;)" - Dan 29 days ago

Flux has an amazing WYSIWYG rendering engine, which means you can drag, stretch, and move objects like a you can in a DTP application, and your webpages will look exactly how you intended.*Flux will generate all the code for you, with no unneccesary tags. (*On standards compliant web browsers)

Size, position, even margins and padding can be altered with handles on the elements themselves. If the properties are stored in external CSS stylesheets, these are automaticaly updated.
 
 

If you’d rather type your code, you can do that too. The objects you create in the Code Editor will appear on the page as soon as you stop typing, they can then be edited using the WYSIWYG display.
 
Flux doesn’t make a distinction between typed code, or objects created by Flux, you can create anyway you like, and Flux will understand. The Flux Code Editor has syntax highlighting for HTML and CSS, auto-completion and line numbering. FreeCode allows you to type any code you want, yet Flux still understands and allows you to use WYSIWYG controls or handcoding.
