How to get started with Pingendo

Learn the basics – we'll get you building great pages in 3 minutes.

Login

Point your browser to https://pingendo.com/me
You'll be prompted to login via Github.
If you don't have a Github account, don't worry. You can create a new Github account in seconds – it's 100% free.

In order to work, Pingendo needs to be authorized on your Github account with 'Repositories' privilege – You can learn more on Github .

Remember, if you like, you can create a new Github account dedicated to use with Pingendo. This can be a good way to keep your Pingendo work separated from your other projects. Alternatively, the desktop version of Pingendo works locally and offline.


Create a new project

Once you’ve set up your Pingendo account, it’s time to create your first project and start building.

  • Click on the "Start a new project" button
  • Name your project -- this will be the same name used to create a new Github repository to store your projects files
  • By default, project are set to "Public" – but you can also set projects "Private" (Read more about collaboration)

Once the project has been created, click on it to open it.

Manage your files

Here you can browse project files and create new ones. 
Pingendo initializes all new projects with one empty page.

Double click on the index.html file to open the builder.  

Your first page

We now have a blank new page, and you are essentially free to do 3 things:             

  • Drag sections and components from the left panel and drop them on canvas
  • Double click on elements to edit their content inline
  • Click to select an element and modify its properties by the right panel

Great! Now that you know the basics of how Pingendo works, now you should learn how to use the builder.
