Tools like Webflow can easily achieve the sites of yesterday and today. Custom code will always be necessary to achieve the sites of tomorrow.

I’m a web designer and work with several developers that primarily use Webflow and Elementor (Wordpress builder). That being said, the most beautiful websites I’ve come across are still mostly custom coded. For super custom requests from clients (like a map experience or 3D moving object), I like to use Upwork and find a true web coder.

My portfolio site is on Webflow though and I love it!

I think the future is APIs that connect multiple front-end platforms that reach users wherever they want (phone, desktop, web—browser and platform agnostic). We are seeing the start of this with tools like react and svelte.

No. Absolutely not. Have you ever tried to make a custom solution, meaning anything that isn't exactly out of the box?

What you're describing are tools that can do the things we have already done easier, the future of the web is still unwritten.

like

Yes.

Webflow is superior to Squarespace let’s say?

You will always need an expert to do custom work. A talented developer combined with a creative team (designer+writer) is next level work.

If the budget allows.

The future is more 3D/webGL stuff. Like d1 said, custom code will always be necessary.

PSA: if you are on a weight loss journey, TAKE PROGRESS PICS. My scale has been jumping around +/- 5lbs for the past month. Took a progress picture last night and compared it to my picture a month ago. It is clear major changes took place which gives me the next boost of motivation I needed to keep going. Also, for context, I’m now around 130lbs at 5’5 so my weight loss has slowed down and even a few lbs will be noticeable!
