Macaw, the DC-based company that offers a platform for code-savvy Web design, released version 1.5 of their highly popular tool and for a limited time (read: two days) you can get it for half its regular selling price.
Back in February, Macaw won “Best Pitch” at our DC Mixer and Startup Showcase. The company has gotten a lot of attention because they’ve created a tool that essentially simplifies design and front-end development into one seamless process: designers can work the way they’ve always worked, while also being provided with simple tools to convert that design into code – something that Adobe has been trying to accomplish for a while. During the company’s initial Kickstarter campaign, they managed to raise over 360 percent of their initial goal (with a total over $275,000).
Macaw’s version 1.5 includes several new features, including display toggling, the ability to add hover, more responsive properties, improvements to Macaw’s layout engine, among others. For just today and tomorrow, they’re offering this new version for $99 instead of the regular $179.
