I wouldn’t say you’re completely off no. inVision did acquire Macaw for this very reason - to deploy live sites.
I was a big user of Macaw when it launched, and it’s drag and drop Photoshop like canvas, was very appealing and easy to learn. However, it never really taught me about the web as Webflow has, and I think that’s the difference.
Maybe inVision will make something of the code they acquired by purchasing Macaw, maybe they won’t, but it’s all a very exciting space.
Personally, for me, Webflow, despite what people complain about, is miles ahead in this department. And if the workshop @callmevlad did with @PixelGeek a few months ago is anything to go by, I think we’re going to see Webflow develop very quickly in the coming year.
The last few workshops are begining to show the power of Ix2 and that anything produced in that promo video for inVision studio can now be made inside Weblow for a production grade website.
The component marketplace will be like the AI singularity () once that’s released, there’ll be no way to slow down the speed of innovation.
Not to mention eCommerce - native @foxy cart inside Webflow - man, if that happened, I’d start designing online stores tomorrow!
