Someone posted on another thread about using dreamweaver. I used it a
bit a few years ago for a seminar, but in general I've never used gui
builders. While the results can be perfect, when I read the code (html
elegant. I used wxpython to make a user interface awhile back and
rapidly dropped it to write the code myself because the generated code
I'm perfectly willing to admit I'm a nut though;)
I'm the same way about C/C++ python, assembler--I don't use IDEs
although I've learned a few through the years. I'm a vi command line
make sort of guy.
So I was just wondering. How many of you gals/guys use GUIs to design
your pages and how many don't? If you don't, why not? If you do, and
you've been in the business for awhile, why do you?
I know that with me, I always want to understand exactly what's going
on, and I want things to be done in the most simple, elegant, and
beautiful way. The thought of handing control over to a GUI while I
just push GUI elements around makes no sense to me. It feels like
trying to move a chain by pushing on one end.
