Hello all -
I'd like to find an old-school style web composing software. What I mean by that is something that allows to visually assemble page layouts by direct manipulation of elements (images and text) and able to run a fake local server to test out multiple related pages of a simple site. The page code needs to be editable at the same time.
The output doesn't need to be the cleanest, as the layout will be recreated using modern tools later ; but it has to output native html pages (this excludes tools like Construct2, or any print-oriented publishing software like Affinity).
Overall this is pretty much what good old Dreamweaver could do. This is also similar in principle to the visual composer view in Wordpress ; although I do need for output to be fully testable offline. A free web-based tool could work, as long as it can spit out a workable set of files editable locally.
I don't mind a paid app, as long as it is not subscribtion-based. And I don't mind the software being ancient, as the only technical requirements are html, css and js.
Does such a thing even exist, now that no-code solutions like Wordpress, Squarespace, and various landing page design tools are all the rage ?
