About 4 years ago, someone asked the community here to suggest tools they use for mocking up responsive websites. Of course, since then, times have changed and so I'm raising the issue again here in 2017. Many new tools have come on the market and I'd like to hear suggestions again for tools by each of the following types:
1) BEST OVERALL RESPONSIVE SITE DESIGN TOOL: What tool do you like the best these days for making responsive websites?
2) FASTEST PROGRAM TO CREATE A NEW RESPONSIVE SITE: Excluding weebly-type online stuff, what desktop program do you like the most for being FAST to create an entirely new responsive website with multiple views? Presumably, it would have templates. Of course, an online tool is acceptable, too, if it allows independent HTML output to a regular hosting company.
3) ONE TOOL FOR SKETCH TO FINAL DESIGN: Can you suggest a tool that goes from wireframe to final design in the same program? I'd like a tool that can let a designer build a wireframe based upon some templates, and then move within that same tool to the final web design (html etc.) output? It seems like such a waste to sketch in one program and then draw the final design from scratch in another program. Ideally, one tool should be able to say, "alright, you want a form with 4 textboxes, a DDL, and a submit button so I'll start you with that in final design mode."
4) TOOL FOR TEAMS WITH DEVELOPERS: What responsive website design tool would you suggest that helps tracks pages in progress, finalized pages, add comments for developers, and then let's developers take only completed pages to then integrate into database-driven websites? Without this being in a tool, people have to make various network folders for categories, drop TXT files for developer notes, etc. and that is not good enough these days.
5) TOOL WITH SUBSCRIBER / BACK-END TEMPLATES: Most tools with templates / prebuilt views are designed to just make front-end websites. But in reality, designers need to create "log in" pages, and have menus for members, customers, subcribers, whatever. What program would you suggest that has prebuilt views for this type of "complete" website and not just a basic 3 page public website?
