"CoffeeCup - Great Program, Difficult for Beginners"

What do you like best?

I am still new to CoffeeCup, but I love that CoffeeCup offers a wide variety of products that will assist in web development. While I am still learning how everything functions, it seems like a great program for someone who is looking for an easier way to create a website that doesn't require extensive coding experience.

What do you dislike?

As a beginner, I have had many moments of feeling so frustrated that I can't do what I want. I have built websites in the past that look great using different platforms and this has by far been the hardest. I definitely think that is because I am not a web designer, so I am missing some of the knowledge that I think might be very beneficial to have when working on a system like this. So, from a beginner's perspective, this may not be the best option. I've been camping out on the help forums, watching tutorials, and resisting throwing my computer at the wall some days haha. All a part of the learning process, I guess!

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would only recommend CoffeeCup to someone who has some web design experience and feels comfortable with some level of coding. As a complete beginner, I feel like I've jumped in over my head and know for a fact there are other website options out there that would be much simpler for me to build off of. (I've used Squarespace before and had a great experience creating a website that I've had many compliments on and use for my personal business). However, I think for someone with more of a base knowledge of web design than I do, this program may be a great fit! It falls into a more affordable price range than some, so that is definitely helpful if you are on a stricter budget.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am helping redesign a VERY outdated website. I look forward to creating a fresh look, and think that there are some feature of CoffeeCup that can help with this!

"CoffeeCup is classic!"

What do you like best?

It's user-friendly. This is a good program for beginners wanting to learn HTML (and other coding languages). It highlights what's wrong with the code, explains why errors appeared and what to do to fix them. The information is clearly laid out and is easy to understand. For example, if you are working on a HTML page, have it open in your text editor and all your browsers at the same time. Make a few changes to the code, save, then refresh each browser to see the changes. I primarily use it for small projects and quick coding. The community is very helpful, the support is good.

What do you dislike?

It is not as modern or advanced as a program such as Atom/VisualStudio or others on the market, but I think it is well suited for HTML and CSS. The price tag may be cheaper than Adobe Dreamweaver, but it lacks the polish many other editors have. The interface is pretty outdated too. Sometimes it can be stubborn and not open the files I need, which can be very annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are many other options for beginning coders/web developers out there. Don't feel intimidated by how "complex" they may look! If not, try out this one! I used it when I was in high school and boy, does it bring back some memories!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have been able to save a lot of money by using this editor. It has been helpful to those I work with that haven't mastered coding by hand.

What Web Design solution do you use?

Thanks for letting us know!

"Coffeecup Design Every Morning"

What do you like best?

I've been with CoffeeCup since its inception, starting when it was a free alternative to HomeSite. Coffee Cup has everything that those mainstream programs had plus more. The Applets and perks were always a plus for some of the best designs and programming. I couldn't recommend CoffeeCup more.

What do you dislike?

In its early years there were some unstable crashes but I believe those are rare and far inbetween. Otherwise I don't see too much I don't like about it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

CoffeeCup solved alot of program applications in web development that HomeSite and Dreamweaver at the time couldn't do. It was a spectacular tool for making my design work easier.

"Great Cost Effective Alternative to Dreamweaver"

What do you like best?

I love the layout. It is very user friendly and provides a convenient way to edit and view HTML seamlessly. I also love how cost effective the software is. They offer an older version free and the newest version is very cost effective compared to Adobe Dreamweaver. To get a user friendly application that does the job well at a much cheaper price is a huge win.

What do you dislike?

It would be great to have the preview be auto updating. Such that with each change to the code, the site preview would automatically update rather than having to constantly click refresh. It would also be convenient to have a view where items could be dropped, dragged, and aligned to cut down on time spend manually coding.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a solid HTML editor that can rival Dreamweaver, but is more cost effective, look no further than CoffeeCup HTML editor. Though not as complete at Dreamweaver, it still easily holds it's own with a nice user friendly interface and ease of use. CoffeeCup HTML editor is worth a try at the very least.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Overall, this product has allowed me to be able to work on site building/coding much more efficiently without having to break the bank. Money and time has been saved because of CoffeeCup.

"CoffeeCup HTML Editor"

What do you like best?

Very easy to create websites and modify them later on.

I like how you can click on a part of the webpage and it will bring you to the part of the code that corresponds with it.

What do you dislike?

I wouldn't recommend newer developers to use such tool since it will overwhelm them at some point with its many functions and buttons on display.

I dont recommend it to beginners.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's well suited for fast webpage projects, consider for fast mockups or prototypes.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Working with folder-heavy projects it's like slicing butter with a hot knife using this piece of software.

I stopped using their software.

What do you like best?

CoffeeCup HTML Editor is great when it comes to web development especially for beginners,it takes out all the intimidation as compared to other editors.what i love most is the code highlighting which make it easy to read your code and differentiate between tags or elements and just normal text and how easy it is to make a website responsive.

What do you dislike?

well nothing much except the fact that you have to buy it for layout designs

"Used for small amounts of easy coding"

What do you like best?

I like the full screen aspects of it and the split screen option. I like how you can click on a part of the webpage and it will bring you to the part of the code that corresponds with it.

What do you dislike?

I find that Coffecup gives me trouble when opening files. I need to click on a file a few times in order to actually get it opened.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would probably choose Dreamweaver over coffecup in the end but that is what my work provides. I think I have more to learn from coffecup as well.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I was solving the problem of creating eblasts in a quick easy way that is easy to version on for different products and clients.

Try the free version first :)

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

"Overwhelming experience to new developers"

What do you like best?

It's full fledged for medium to big projects, really useful when it comes to refactoring old code and testing responsiveness on many screen sizes with ease.

What do you dislike?

I wouldn't recommend newer developers to use such tool since it will overwhelm them at some point with its many functions and buttons on display, although they could adopt it and master it to make it their one and only html editor, which can come handy in the future for them.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Working with folder-heavy projects it's like slicing butter with a hot knife using this piece of software. It has a nice syntax highlighting feature that will allow you to not get lose in the code.

"A vulnerable but feature rich HTML editor with a nice upgrade offer"

What do you like best?

In a crowded HTML editor market, CoffeeCup HTML Editor stands out with some intriguing features. It really does a good job of helping would be coders learn HTML by arranging code, suggesting code samples, and making it easy to preview on the fly changes. The software also comes with a range of HTML code samples, templates, and other goodies. Using the program is fairly easy without too many intrusive elements. The editor is fully compatible with many of today's web technologies and is easy to integrated advanced elements onto a page of code.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the interface can feel a little out dated when compared to other editors out there. However this can be a good thing with greater speed than more bloated editors on the market.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely look at other editors on the market.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The program really helps coders code well without being too loaded down with features that are not needed. However, non coders may want to look elsewhere for a more user friendly editor.

What do you like best?

I like the simple-ness of this product however, it's a bit hard to use and not that intuitive. It also lacks any sort of advanced design options and it locks you to the GUI that is provided with the product.

What do you dislike?

The fact that you do not have access to any advanced design methods to tweak things is a huge downside to me.

"Better HTML Editors Out there."

What do you like best?

Coffee Cup HTML has been an idea go-to for those new to designing and coding with HTML, and need a basic site and novice grasp on coding and designing web pages.

What do you dislike?

There are just so many alternatives that allow ease of use, contain the ability to learn without becoming overwhelmed, and provides up-to-date results without the bloat.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Ideal for those who are just beginners, but it will be easy to wean off the product when you are ready to have a more direct hands-on approach to HTML code
