Unusable, but promising

Comment by Thelle
about Jetstrap · Dec 2012 ·

Love the concept, but it is very much beta as of December 2012...

It has been updated, however I personally see it as a rip-off. Bootstrap is an open and publicly available UX framework, and here we got people trying to turn it to profit without giving anything in return to the Bootstrap developers/community.

$24/mon for simply making bootstrap themes is absurd, you will make a theme in 5-6 hours and still have to cash out $24? While you can get a freelancer to make a quick Bootstrap theme for you for $100. But it would be a professional theme, not limited where and how you can place elements.

I liked there idea, but going full paid with absurd pricing is ridiculous. They can complain that there hosting the assets for you, but when you are hosting them on Amazon S3 which costs very cheap they its a major rip off charging $24 for $0.02 worth of assets.

What I saw as a potential has now been delivered by Small Webflow iconWebflow - amazing service with the possibility of full customization. It's not cheap, but extremely powerful, but sill relatively easy to use.

True. It's been striking me for past few months with many services going fully commercial. Pretty much few services took it step farther, and stated you either pay or you ain't getting your files. As a case with Droplr not to mention SugarSync suicidal move to all paid.

Webflow is amazing and delivers more then what Jetstrap does. But again it still strikes me the amount they charge for drag and drop Bootstrap builder with assets hosted on Amazon S3 (I host plenty of stuff there to know its uber cheap compared to Rackspace CloudFiles).
