How good is webflow for building websites?

    I've found that it's really good for marketing sites or landing page-type sites. The animation and interaction capabilities are really robust and can save a ton of time vs designing and then coding by hand.

    I could also see it being a really good tool to replace Photoshop or Sketch for live mockups of a site design.

    I did recently try to create static HTML for a site and then export the code to use with Wordpress and found it really messy. Especially when you have to dive deeper into the frontend code.

    Editing the code it exports was difficult and the workflow was complex (ie, make change in Webflow, re-export .zip file of code, add to dev environment, etc.) but maybe there's a better way to do it.
