Builders that created web sites from scratch previously after which attempted Webflow, what was once your revel in?
I already see that it is superior to look immediate adjustments of colours, fonts and margins. There’s are living server plugin for VSCode however it is much less efficient in my view, as a result of you wish to have to avoid wasting document after each alternate of numbers.
As for loading time, customized Gatsby/AstroJS web site rather a lot in 0.5s. Unoptimized Webflow web site rather a lot in 1.8-2.0s and will get 90+ rankings on Google PageSpeed Insights. I suppose after some paintings it may possibly succeed in higher effects
Responsivness is a bit of tough in Webflow, propably as a result of I do not have a lot revel in with this software. For now I will be able to make a web site cellular pleasant in customized code a lot quicker than in Webflow.
Webflow has great libraries of premade blocks/elements. I am speaking about whole sections like navbar or hero, no longer small parts like buttons or inputs. If anyone writes web site e.g. in Tailwind, there are services and products like [Shuffle.dev](https://shuffle.dev/) and TailwindUI the place you’ll additionally replica premade blocks, however in my revel in they regularly do not paintings as supposed and require numerous changes.
Imposing Webflow CMS into web site appears to be a lot faster than the use of headless CMS like Sanity or Netlify for customized web site, most commonly as a result of it is constructed into their UI already.
I did not take a look at but a bit of extra complicated issues, like sliders, lightbox galleries, or animations. On customized web sites I used libraries like Swiper or Framer Movement that labored rather well. For Webflow, I have noticed some guides on yt so I suppose it is potential. I additionally did not have alternative to handle Webflow web sites within the long-term so I will be able to’t say how environment friendly it’s, however I be expecting customized web site coded from scratch is far better in that regard as a result of it is not made in pagebuilder.
