Check out the Solis app for Mac

Solis for Mac is a Live Design Output that integrates seamlessly with your favourite code editor, which in my case is Blocs for Mac.

Solis is a great companion app for Blocs.

Solis for Mac is a Live Design Output that integrates seamlessly with your favourite code editor. Delivering real time, multi viewport previewing of HTML, CSS, SCSS and LESS as you write it.

Most designers and developers use a web browser as the visual output for their code editor. Even with technologies such as Live Reload, front end code needs to be saved first in order to preview its visual output. As well as this, browsers aren’t designed to view multiple viewports simultaneously. Which means a lot of time is wasted checking the responsive characteristics of a website. It’s kind of like working in the dark

Solis was built from the ground up, to solve this problem. We think of it as the missing piece of the puzzle, a powerful addition that integrates with almost any web design workflow. An app that finally sheds light on the situation, enabling designers and developers to see and interact with their codes visual output, as it’s written, on up to 50 viewports, simultaneously.

Some of the features of Solis app

- Instantly preview HTML, CSS, SCSS and LESS as you write it.
- Supports the leading code editors, Atom, VS Code, Sublime Text and Brackets.
- Draw, resize and arrange multiple viewports that simultaneously display live code.
- Access the powerful WebKit developer inspector, with code debugging, for each viewport.
- Connect with local servers powered by apps such as MAMP, for PHP development.
- Quickly access the files in your site and instantly open them in your regular editing app.
- Create your own workspaces, for a more personalised setup.
- External changes saved to assets such as images, are automatically applied across all viewports.
