Personal home pages strike back – an incredibly elegant and friendly tool from @xhfloz.
Weiwei spotted this one some months ago - a tweet showing a responsive website builder:
I’ve been working on a dead simple way to make websites.
Drag-and-drop, free-form, collage-like.
Well, today mmm.page is out! So good! Please share your pages in the comments.
Over the past few months, I have seen this tool become incredibly polished - and have had some great chats with XH, discussing the plans for it. But even today - what a killer tool! Works brilliantly on mobile devices. Easily an heir to the throne of the original Byte page maker.
Don’t want to speak for XH here, but there has been talk about self-hosting pages as well.
a) definitely want to support the use case of self-hosting. i think the ideal world is… “decentralized” hosting
b) at the same time, i want to support ppl who have no technical knowledge. let ppl put up a website within a minute or two – a presence online.
I asked about how the service will be kept alive, given that so many website builders end up capitulating to ad revenue and “engagement stuff” - the reply was “I would rather have no service running than one doused with advertisements.”
There is such a community of zazzy web tools coming together lately! Brilliant work, XH.
