I might need to mention again that Sparkle’s focus is to do everything visually, at the expense of possibly not having everything you need right now.
Yep. Understood. I’m just trying to get a feel for what the limitations are. There are trade-offs with each and every approach.
Again Sparkle isn’t dead and we’re moving ahead at high speed.
I never meant to imply that it was dead. In fact it has been stated that Sparkle is a much younger product than FW and they can’t be compared apples to apples. I would argue FW for the moment isn’t dead either. For now it works just fine. In Sierra reports are it will work fine. If it comes down to it, I will maintain an old piece of hardware if needed to update old client designs.
However, since this is FreewayTalk and what the users here KNOW is Freeway, comparisons are inevitable. “How do I do this thing I already know how to do if I wanted to in Sparkle?” It’s an understandable, albeit perhaps unfair question. But again, since this is FWT, I hope you can understand where we are coming from. If your answer is “do it in an iFrame” then I will have to pass. If I had come to Sparkle 10 years ago, I would have made different choice, but today, it is too big a step backwards. I don’t want to be limited to only this one image gallery or this one lightbox. I know myself. It will be great for a few months, but inevitably I will want to do more and try something different. There are plenty of people on this forum for whom Sparkle is a fantastic choice, but I don’t think that user is me. And frankly, that bums me out. There’s a lot to like about your program.
Google page speed has all the details on this,
I actually expected you to do this with my page. I invited the critique when I told you it was admittedly slow to load. I just uploaded last night and those fixes are yet to come. When I started in web design I was scared to make a mistake, at this point, I’m realizing that is how I learn. I don’t want an app to protect me from myself, but rather one that will help me grow.
Anyway I’m not sure whether you have given Sparkle a try
Only minimally. I’ve watched videos and downloaded it. While testing the app, I bumped into the questions I had above and that is why I started asking these difficult questions. Thank you for your time and explaining your approach.
