    I've been working on this Mac product for the last couple of months with Koen Bok and Benjamin Nathan. Curious to hear what everyone thinks about Cactus!

      Looks great! Is there a way to create an RSS feed? I couldn’t see an RSS XML in the blog template.

      Hey, I just used Cactus to make a website, it was a pretty ballin experience.

      How everything is magically setup perfectly is great, the templating language is fantastic, and automatic scss and brower refresh, crazy helpful.

      Being able to use Sublime Text to edit is perfect, I've never used the templating langauge before, but I like it, can anybody suggest a package for auto completing the django syntax?

      The export feature works nearly perfectly, but all my static resources got an extra / in front of them, making them break. I might've messed something up, but building from the basic template, if I export

      src="{% static 'images/heroImage.jpg' %}"

      It generates out too


      When it should be


      All in all, it was such an effortless experience that I will probably start making every website with Cactus.

      Very sharp. I'd be curious as to whether you guys are considering integrating tools to edit content too or if you're focused on code.
