What are your thoughts on Stackbit?

I just tried Stackbit and to be honest it was one of the most amazing website builder I've tried,

Had I known about this before, I would not ever created an WordPress account.

Have you ever worked on Stackbit and what are your thoughts on WordPress vs Stackbit?

Share in the comment below.
Thank You.

Coming from a non web background, Stackbit seems awesome! Especially since I'm not a fan of the standard WordPress look.

I can get a beautiful looking site up and running with just a few clicks and even tie it to a no code CMS.

I just wish there were more appealing themes built around businesses, portfolios and e-commerce. Don't get me wrong, I have found themes that I've liked in each of those categories but I just wish I could find more. Most themes seem to be built for blogging.

I like the idea of being able to do a simple Jekyll or 11ty site, which make arranging portions of HTML on a screen easy for me compared to PHP, but give a content author a WYSIWYG drag-and-drop experience, a pretty great concept.

I haven't put it into production with the site I have in mind, though. That'd require actually ever finishing that site's redesign.

Also, you have to plan ahead, mentally, for drag-and-drop when developing a theme's data structure.
