New components!

25 Oct 2018

A new round of improvements has just been released. Check out the latest news here:

  • New Components -  the component list has been enlarged and enhanced with new and ready-to-use Bootstrap components. All of them have specific setting on the right inspector, for a full customization without typing code.
  • On canvas action - you might have notice a new toolbar just above every element in the canvas. This short menu would let you interact faster and more precisely with the selection. Clone, delete or move items, or add a child with one click: see the range of possibilities by selecting the menu icon.
  • Margin and responsive utilities - Pingendo builder is based on Bootstrap framework and its mobile-first philosophy. As responsive settings are fundamental for creating any UI we've created a specific inspector on the right when columns are selected. Margin and padding  input are also more specific and easier to set.
  • Bug fixes - there were few glitches that have been fixed in this round. As usual we are collecting bug reports on the official Github project > go on Github. You can find the current updating situation and a brief roadmap about the next features that are going to be released.

As always we'd love to get any feedback from you. Write us on Twitter or email

Pingendo 4.1

We are very happy to announce a major release which brought many news in Pingendo. The whole team has been developing heads down for a while and we're eager to share the improvements with you! See some of the enhancements listed below:

  • New Sections -  the lists of premade blocks have been restyled and extended with more, amazing sections. Maps, assets, inline styles: there are many news, so take your time to check'em all. More prototyping interfaces will be soon introduced, for app-designer and web-delevoper happiness!
  • CSS panel - customizing your web project is now even easier with the CSS panel and the inline style editor. Select the element you want to style and start adding backgrounds, transformations and so on. Choose a custom name for directly writing a CSS rule: then you can always inspect and modify it from the code editor (F2). Otherwise, leave selected the inline tag and it will be embedded in line in the HTML, together with the element itself. 
  • Bootstrap 4.1.3 - the latest Bootstrap version is fully supported, together with some terrific news they've introduced (eg. shadows, flex-properties, ...). Have a look to the official v4.1.3 ship list for more details.
  • Builder interface - as you might have already noticed, the section tree on the upper right has been enhanced, giving you more control on the page structure. Moreover,  you can now zoom in and out the pageview from the upper toolbar, which is a perfect feature for dragging sections easily and where you want. The code editor has also been improved with a better search function.
  • Templates - start a new project and pick a template from within the app, without needing to browse our external library. The templates have also been updated to the v4.1.3 Bootstrap version and more are coming soon.
  • Stability - a massive developing work has been done on the software stability and many bugs have been fixed in this release. In the Help menu in app you can now access the About section, that's telling the software current version and for bug reporting via Github -> click here for issue on Github. Pingendo now features an auto-updating system, so the app will be continuously improved and updates will pop-up regularly. 

To get the latest release, visit our new website and download it. Thanks to all our users and the growing community of people helping us to make Pingendo better everyday. Write us for anything, both on Twitter or at info@pingendo.com

Code editor revamp ✍

Here're some news about the HTML/SASS editor:

Floating window - like the project panel, the source editor is embedded in a different window. This allows you to resize or place it wherever you like, even on other monitors. Check your OS shortcuts for quick sizing or docking to screen borders.

Autocomplete for both HML and SASS sources

Various improvements in accuracy and speed

You can use these new shortcuts
F1: open/close the project panel
F2: open/close code editor
Ctrl/Cmd-F : search (enter to search next)

Design while coding, and code while designing.
Enjoy!

New Project panel 📚

The Project Panel has been radically improved. Quickly browse and open recent projects with the dropdown selector. Open and modify web pages by right-clicking on them and handle whole projects from the bottom menu. You can hide the panel and recalling it anytime with the Projects button in the toolbar or from the View menu.
