Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 Review

Thursday, 1 August 2013
Dreamweaver has been a top ranking editor for a long time. It’s easy to use, but has a lot of features that can take a beginning web designer to professional very quickly. And this has been true of Dreamweaver for years.
This update to Dreamweaver in some ways is very exicting, and in others is something of a let down to some developers according to this review on the offficial adobe website.

 Dreamweaver CS6 has adressed the problem of supporting the latest HTML, JavaScript and CSS features - while keeping complexity to a minimum.     If your PC or Mac already runs Dreamweaver CS5 or 5.5 you'll find Dreamweaver CS6 runs just fine, there's no need for additional system resources. Adobe Dreamweaver CS6 enhancements were aimed at supporting a diverse audience of both designers and developers. That's a hard task, as both have different needs, and both work in very different ways.

Increased performance on Dreamweaver CS6

Similar to what they have done on Photoshop CS6 and Illustrator CS6, we have a great performance improvement on Dreamweaver CS6. But, besides of the great interface performance improvements the biggest change here is the whole new way as the Dreamweaver FTP works, improving a lot the average upload and download speed.

jQuery Mobile elements

Dreamweaver CS6 has added great support to jQuery mobile and its components. Mobile developers also get access to a set of jQuery Mobile elements, so they can quickly build interactive sites without having to spend time getting a code framework in place. 
Components can be dragged and dropped to pages. There's also the option of creating your own themes in Fireworks CS6, and delivering them as theme swatches of CSS and sprite sheets.Also, you are able to edit jQuery Mobile components on the go, since you have the jQuery Mobile Swatches, which contextually shows the options for each jQuery item you have and also allow you easily changing themes, icons, positions.

Fluid/Responsive Grids

One of the biggest changes in Dreamweaver CS6, is the introduction of tools to build and manage fluid grid layouts. Fluid grids allow you to use media queries to deliver flexible layouts that automatically adjust to deliver content appropriate to different classes of device.
Adobe is currently supporting common smartphone, tablet and desktop resolutions which give you templates to layout pages for each of the three screen resolutions.

Business Catalyst integrated with Dreamweaver CS6

Business Catalyst is kind of a mix of WordPress and Magento, with a lot of modules integrated directly as Dreamweaver CS6 panels. So, if you want to add a form, it’s there. If you want to add a product, just click and you’re good to go. If you want to add a dynamic navigation bar, it’s there also, just click it.

Improved layouts in Dreamweaver CS6

Developers keep their code-first view, while designers get improved layout tools that work with a range of modern web technologies. The result remains flexible, and it's easy for designers and developers to share a workspace. However there's still little or no support for code repositories and other team working features. Dreamweaver CS6 is still for the lone designer/developer, something that feels increasingly out of place in today's world of large teams of both designers and developers, all working together on the same site.
