Webflow is a web-based drag and drop tool for building responsive websites. It's built with a “code-first” philosophy, so it's nice to have at least basic knowledge on web, HTML and CSS. But once you have, it gives you both the ease and complexity needed for creating almost any website.
Webflow attempts to fill the space between DIY software like Wix and Squarespace, traditional content management systems (CMS) like WordPress, and actual front-end web development. Webflow Designer is a Photoshop-like interface that allows users to automatically generate semantic markup by dragging and dropping HTML elements onto a canvas and styling CSS properties. What's important, Webflow exports W3C-compliant code that can be instantly deployed as-is or handed off to developers.
Also, Webflow’s built-in content management system gives you the power to make changes to your site—plus add new content, like blog posts—whenever you want. On top of that, you can create ecommerce websites with Webflow.
If you need a no-code solution for more advanced websites, Webflow is the way to go. We'll explore its capabilities in multiple courses.
