Thinkin' Tags (YAML 4+)
Thinkin' Tags is a new interface builder for website and web applications with an unique visual workflow. It's the successor of the old YAML Builder with awesome features and great flexibility for your creativity.
Build your markup via drag & drop using powerful configurable layout modules based on CSS frameworks like YAML 4. Prototype your responsive designs with CSS3 and web fonts from Google Font Library while remaining full control over your code at any time.
Projects can contain multiple HTML pages, stylesheets and media files. New HTML pages and stylesheets can be created as blank files or as clones from existing files. Finally - when your work is done - export your projects as a ZIP archive.
Thinkin' Tags is available as a public alpha release and is completely free. Request an invite and become an official test today.
YAML Builder (YAML 3.x only)
The YAML Builder is a tool for visually creating YAML-based CSS layouts, released in 2008. It allows for the setting of basic layout characteristics like the number and positioning of the content columns, as well as the dynamic creation of grid-based layouts by dragging and dropping building blocks into the layout.
The generated code (HTML/CSS) is based on the file structure of the "Simple Project" template, so that the complete result can be copied and pasted directly, without changing anything. The HTML markup, the screen layout, as well as the layout-specific adjustments for Internet Explorer 6 & 7 are generated on the fly.
The last official release 1.2.1 is based on the functionality of YAML 3.0.6 and does not support the creation of the full-page layout variations. The generated code is fully compatible with YAML 3.3.
Templates & Online-Tutorials
Various third-party authors have come together in the YAML community: they have already developed templates for various CMS. I, Dirk Jesse, explicitly endorse the laudable development work of these authors. Here on YAML.de, they have a platform to present their projects. Some of them also provide support in the YAML community forums for their templates.
