We’re working on a 64-bit version of Freeway. Apple have abandoned many of the 32-bit APIs that Freeway uses, so we’re rewriting it from the ground up to use modern (64-bit) APIs. We’re making good progress, but it’s going to take us a while to complete this.

We don’t have a release date, but we’re aware that Apple will probably release a new version of macOS later this year, and this will no longer be able to run 32-bit applications.

Thanks for offering!

We’re not yet at a general beta-testing stage, but we will make an announcement on Freeway Talk when we do get to that point.

For those who can’t wait anymore for Freeway Pro 8 to see the ligt… try Nicepage (former Artisteer)… webdesign 3.0. Free design, no bootstrap blocs and no coding.

Cheers, Andries

Good news and hopefully sooner than later. Apple is already kicking out messages warning of future incompatibility issues. I thought I would have to move my complete site to wordpress. Honestly, I have never warmed up to wordpress.

ye old http;//toolemera.com wants to remain alive.

With regard to the post by Andries, I must say that I’ve not yet seen any responsive web design tool (nope, not even Nicepage) which offers a responsive TABLE tool for tabular data. Such is possible in responsive design and even Bootstrap 4 offers it. I’ve been following the Blocs app for a long while (currently running Bootstrap 4), but Blocs still doesn’t offer a table tool. Some Blocs users in desperation add tables via code, but that is very unpleasant when tables are huge and require regular alterations to the data within the table. Freeway 7 Pro doesn’t make it easy to build a responsive website like Blocs (or Nicepage) but at least I can build tables for my tabular data.

Hopefully the 64-bit version of Freeway will include a Responsive Table creator tool.

Hi James, is my conclusion right that you still use a static HTML site for data driven content in tables? Nicepage offers exporting templates to Joomla and Wordpress who are dynamic HTML with Databases on serverside. There must be a a method or pluginn for WP who can handle your request I think? Isn’t that a better solution though?

https://www.wpbeginner.com/plugins/how-to-add-tables-in-wordpress-posts-and-pages-no-html-required/

Or is this too simple?

Blocs app works fine but still lacks a few options and is sometimes very confusioning. I just started with Nicepage but the Webdesign 3.0 approach made me smile again…

regards Andries

I’ve never used WordPress so I view using it as adding complexity to a single-app solution. I’m the only person changing my websites, so I don’t need to collaborate and allow others to edit the data, which seems to be what the use of WordPress or the like would be most suited for. I’m just curious why these responsive design apps don’t just have a table tool built-in. I know why Blocs doesn’t have it. Norm, the developer has put the priority on adding other new features. But that doesn’t explain why other responsive design apps don’t have it. I doubt it’s because “everyone on the planet is using WordPress.” I guess the developers of those apps just haven’t spent time on it. Hopefully Freeway 8 incorporates it, along side a much easier means of creating a responsive site. Blocs is quite straightforward in that regard.

I never used WP before, just Freeway, Blocs and Muse. Blocs is the only survivor, Elementor was an alternative, but Nicepage feels good to me as a free-layout-designer so I bought it to make a few new sites with it.

I have no knowledge in setting up responsive tables, I find a lot of options but you have been searching the whole internet I suppose, so any suggestion from my side will be otiose… Problem are the screens on phones ofcourse for showing tables in a good manner?

Perhaps the CSS solution is the best https://www.liquidlight.co.uk/blog/tables-in-responsive-design/

Funny. I clicked on the link you provided, Andries, and scrolled down to the “Checklist to help choose the best table for your” section which has a table. I viewed it with Safari on my 5K iMac. I then decreased the width of the browser window to see how that table would collapse. It’s not pretty! :-) I prefer this method of collapsing to be superior to the example you provided:

And here’s a very simple table built upon Bootstrap 4:

More table fun:

I really like this one, which hides less important columns as you shrink the width — try it:

I know Mr. Hughes is reading this thread, so I posted all of this not to highjack the thread but rather to express a hope that Freeway 8 will be more than just a 64-bit version of Freeway Pro 7, but an app that brings us an easier means of creating responsive web sites, yet in a way that doesn’t jettison important features like TABLES for tabular data.

Best,

James Wages
