Hi, I have used DreamWeaver to make some CSS code from the CSS panel, I wonder if there is any program to create CSS code maybe better?
Honestly? By hand. I
Honestly? By hand.
I guess it depends on what "better" means. Faster? Easier? Leaner?
Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger...
I mean with more possibility as to make advance CSS Code, a especial software only for that and if it have all that stuff that you said (faster, easier, leaner) great, even better.
Sorry CSS is a hand coding
Sorry CSS is a hand coding skill, it's nature does not lend itself to automation, it simply isn't possible for a script to know what needs doing. You're just going to have to put the study time in , and yep it's fairly hard work to master it
There's one called TopStyle,
There's one called TopStyle, I heard a friend of mine got some good results from it, but if I was you I will stick to Hugo's comment and try to learn it how it's supposed to...
I agree with all the above
I agree with all the above comments!... The closest sort of answer I could give is the only way to make coding CSS 'better' is to be able to do it quicker!...
For this I use Dreamweaver, as you probably know when you type a letter it gives a list of options to select, e.g type in b and then a drop down list appears with things such as background, background-image and so on...
However, don't try to use this to learn more! This should only be used to make coding faster!
I did used to use notepad++ to code CSS but it wasn't faster than coding in Dreamweaver, that's more a program for lower spec PC's, however it is good to use whilst learning CSS!...
I hope my post was of some use to you!
There's this extension for
There's this extension for DW from Eric Meyer.
There's also Style Master by Westciv.
I've not used either but they're by respected names in the industry, so might be worth checking out.
There's also Stylizer which I did check out briefly but was already using DW and didn't feel like investing the time to learn a new program.
Doesn't really matter how
Doesn't really matter how respected a name someone is it still is not something that lends itself to automation, a plugin , if it's like most editors simply inserts a property at the cursor point or similar, that hardly achieves much or saves time really, the actual process of assembling rulesets and applying to markup to achieve a presentation still needs a level of thought, that can not be automated.
Of course it might spit out a whole framework ready made but I don't really want to consider that as it just irritates me, having little time for the copy and paste nature of coding that is becoming increasingly prevalent nowadays.
Oh please! Quote:Bring the
Bring the master’s touch to your designs
Agree with all of you too.
hey guys thanks, I know a little bit I just asked for the program, because with a program you can learn a lot, when it made the code then you can see how to do it and then you learn advance CSS Code. I really know the basic, not advance yet. Anyway I will try TopStyle as one of you said.
No No NO NO No please don't
No No NO NO No please don't try to learn to code CSS from examples produced by any software/plugin, that's the whole point you simply can't write CSS this way, maybe the 'masters' plugin produces a fully fledged page from which you can work on and modify and perhaps if you consider that his work must be beyond reproach and of the finest most sublime examples ever to grace the world of web then great, you might learn to follow in someone else footsteps or style/methodology, but I for one would not grant one iota of respect to anyone coding in this fashion, there are plenty of good layout examples dotted around the web that you could study and learn from but these are just frameworks.
Paul, think of it like
Paul, think of it like this:
CSS is a language, almost. Or is. Would you learn any other language by watching a machine write things in it?
You'll end up with Me Engrish real Good.
You're right, learning from some good examples is fine, but handwriting the code gives such nice results. At my design studio, we hand-code pretty much everything. Really learning how to use CSS is always a good base for beginners, and trying to get away from the pre-fabricated layouts out there on the web if you can.
So Guys you are the experts I will take your advices then.
