I purchased the app a few weeks ago (just before the initial public release) and have been playing with it from time to time.

First off, I can put everybody’s mind at ease and say that the produced code, both markup and css are wonderfully clean. Honestly, in this aspect, Macaw stands way above anything else I’ve seen. Give it a go and I promise you’ll be amazed by the quality of the code!

Unfortunately, I have not been able to efficiently use the tool in a real life project. There are simply still to many quirks and issues with the software for me to be able to efficiently integrate Macaw into my workflow. Simple things, like creating a menu bar, take up too long. I think every professional coder out there with several years of experience under their belt will find that handwriting the code is still faster at this point.

That said, I do really feel the talented guys at Macaw are on to something and if they stick with it, keep making the software better and fix up the existing issues, Macaw will definitely turn into a very useful tool, for both developers and designers alike!

Give it a try!

Is that the start of when “web developer” will become an obsolete position and everyone will lose their job?

You know, like the guys that used to sit in phone routing rooms and were plugging lines in appropriate slot to get people to talk to each other?

By the time we will be advanced enough to create software or machine that will be good enough to write code for WordPress theme that way, there simply won’t be any WordPress or Internet as we know. It requires CREATIVE THINKING.

It seems that web designers future job will be only to make design in photoshop-like aplication and web developers job will be how to make a system for auto-coding that. Seems boring to me. It will make designer profession and developer profession too far from each other.

I must say, watching the last video in the http://macaw.co/videos/ page is pretty convincing that this is an awesome tool in the making.

When I first watched the video I thought…

“mm, it would make a good prototyping tool”

But as Chilly_Orange said (and this is someone that’s actually used the software)... Even simple things can take a long time.

So I think for now I’ll stick to Bootstrap wireframes for prototyping, a couple of lines of code and ‘bam’ you’ve got your menu bar.

I will certainly keep an eye on this software though. Bookmarked!
