Sparkle is the easiest way to make a real website. It's the smart choice that helps you build a website that delivers. Cost effectively, on your Mac.
THE SMART CHOICE
Sparkle combines an uncompromising visual approach, freeform design and a delightful interface. All in a powerful Mac app. Nothing else comes close.
You gave up on HTML, on tools that aren't quite visual enough or are full of jargon, on cookie cutter templates.
Sparkle turns your design into a live site on the fly.
WEBSITE THAT DELIVERS
You want your site to stand out, to sell more, get more reservations and signups, be more authoritative. This is the performance that matters. Put your voice in it, your personal touch. It’s you, Sparkle and the open web.
You can count on Sparkle producing fast loading, high ranking sites.
There’s no shortcut to uniqueness. Only hard work and iteration make your website stand out in a world of templates.
Cost isn’t the cash you pay. It’s the time spent fighting themes and plugins, confusing and overlapping in function.
Sparkle is effortless, it makes change fast, iteration fun.

Ratings and ReviewsSee All
A Great Basic Web Dev App!
Sparkle is fast, and intuitive. Very easy to use, and mostly pretty powerful considering all things.
Naturally, it does lack some more advanced features, but none being more noticeable than the very basic “full-screen background photo” ability being omitted from the program. Every other basic web editor and tool on the market allows this, it’s really the one feature keeping me from a 5 star review. Other than this frustratingly simple missing feature, Sparkle has everything else I need within reason.
I hope it’s updated very soon to include this. I’ll update my review when/if it’s added. Until then, Sparkle is a great option, just don’t expect to be able to use photos as a background!
Developer Response ,
Many thanks for your review! Setting a photo as full screen background isn't one of the stock settings for page backgrounds because there's no good way to account for how much a long page will stretch the image, so we encourage Sparkle users to place a wide box behind all page elements instead. It's only slightly more manual and achieves exactly the intended effect, with much more control. It also isn't a super popular visual effect in modern designs. We're always happy to talk about this or other topics further via email! email@example.com
SUPPORT IS WORLD CLASS!!!
I’ve been juggling a very demanding full time job, and a hobby that I love and get paid for, for 40 years. I am a professional salesman, and on the weekends, a professional children’s entertainer. I AM NOT A WEB DEVELOPER. I need tools that are powerful intuitive and easy to use. When I need help, I NEED HELP. I’ve been using Sparkle for a couple of years now, and every time I’ve needed help, their SUPPORT team has been WORLD CLASS. My day job is selling technology products to Fortune 500 companies—and Sparkle’s SUPPORT team is on a par with any of the SUPPORT teams that I’ve ever worked with, and I’m comparing them to teams that support mission critical multiple million dollar investments in infrastructure.
In particular, Duncan Wilcox is amazing! He is responsive, tenacious, and competent. I don’t even want to say how far and above the call of duty he will go, because I don’t want to set the bar TOO high for him and Sparkle, but what he did for me today was very, very impressive. He’s an inspiration for how I want to treat my customers in all of my endeavors.
The product itself is great. But if you’re going to run a business, small or large, and count on the product, YOU NEED GREAT SERVICE—and Sparkle delivers!!!!
I bought Sparkle after reading the good reviews, taking a chance it would be an acceptable substitute for iWeb, which I used to build my sites long ago. It IS--and it's even better. I've managed to make a really creative website that gets lots of compliments, thanks to Sparkle. I also love that there are built-in animations I can add to certain elements on the site (making a certain object shake or bounce, etc.) which is cute and eye-catching, perfect for my "brand." Visitors always comment on how they "love" the "interactive" quality (by which they mean something animating when they scroll). All I did was drag and drop and assign an animation, and re-tool a bit! So easy. It's worth noting that I did have a couple of questions, particularly when I was first uploading my site onto my server. I couldn't quite get it going, so I contacted customer service to ask. They walked me through the process and have helped me ever since with various aspects of site-building, without complaint. Outstanding level of support. Cannot recommend this software to Mac web builders highly enough.
