Sparkle 1.2

Sparkle is a vector drawing tool, uniquely tailored for web design and website building, which allows you to create websites visually.

Layout Freedom
Overthrow the tyranny of the template by moving and changing every element on the page. Design from scratch or be inspired by the built-in layouts. Your web page is your canvaas.

Mobile Native
Build a website that feels native on mobile phones and tablets, as well as desktops and laptops. Sparkle gives you fine-grain control for each device layout.

Instant Preview
Sparkle translates your content into accurate, modern HTML and CSS, instantly. Indulge in that last, final tweak — you design while Sparkle codes. Sparkle updates a browser preview in real time, even before saving the document.
