Announcing a new project

A few months ago, Google decided to also rank websites based on if they work well on mobile devices. I looked shortly into that, trying to see how much work it would be to convert my software website to a responsive one. After a bit of playing around, I decided that this would be too much work for now.
But still, it itched me, and figured out that a lot of people probably have this problem too.

So I took my web editor WebsitePainter and - for testing - extended it a bit to allow responsive website design. Unfortunately, the result of this was a bit too complicated. WebsitePainter is an editor for creating websites with just a few clicks here and there, without any HTML or CSS knowledge. In order to create responsive websites, you still need to know at least a little bit more in depth about how the web works. But clearly too much for people used to work with WebsitePainter.
So, I forked this work over into another, new project, RocketCake responsive website editor:

RocketCake will be free for most people, because I think it might be a bit too complicated to use in constrast to my other software. But in order to keep the development of this software funded, there will be a professional edition with special features needed only by maybe 5% of all users.

If you are interested in this software, let me know by subscribing to the newsletter so you get a mail once it is released, or following me on Twitter, I will send out a notification once it is ready.

How did you come up with that interesting name?

Release date is not set yet, sorry. About that name: Difficult to say, I think I just sat down and thought a bit. :)
