Provides a drag and drop interface where HTML, SASS, and CSS can be produced. Included is a rich library of prebuilt elements from where you can choose how to create and customize your web page. Offers infinite graphic possibilities, and with Bootstrap theme engine you can create unique interfaces.

Pingendo is intended for the creation of static websites. As it allows creating a page by composing its graphic elements while editing its code, the tool is suitable for both experienced users and beginners. The tool has an intuitive and modern-looking interface that allows you to switch from graphic design to code writing very easily and to monitor how the results you make on one mode are reflected on the other.

In visual design mode, graphic elements are treated like blocks you can simply drag and drop to the desired location on the page. You can start by working on the sections of your page, such as headers, contents, footers, and forms. Then, you can populate them with different components, including text boxes, media, lists, tables, and buttons. Luckily, the pages you create with Pingendo are responsive: they adapt to the type of screen of the target device, including desktop computers, laptops, smartphones, and tablets.

As said above, Pingendo lets you design while coding. This means that every change you make is automatically cascaded to the underlying script. But this also happens the other way around, because, if you make any change to the code, you will soon notice how it affects the appearance of the webpage. In this regard, you need to know that you can add not only HTML code but also SAS. However, beginners have the opportunity of deciding to work with the graphical elements only by hiding the scripting console.

In my opinion, the best advantage of using Pingendo is derived from its support of the Bootstrap framework. Good news is that the tool gives you access to more than 200 Bootstrap responsive sections to use on your project, which will definitely help you create good-looking sites based on sound underlying code with minimum effort. It is also convenient that the resulting site can be published to Netlify.

All in all, Pingendo seems to be a good alternative for veteran web designers and newbies alike. Although there is a free version available, it comes with a lot of limitations: it cannot be used on extensive projects or for more than a given number of days each month, it does not work offline and it is only legal to use it for non-commercial purposes. Yet, the Premium version is quite affordable and it can be bought for a limited period of time.
