Thinkin' Tags (YAML 4+)
Thinkin' Tags is the latest frontend development tool, created for rapid prototyping and creation of CSS layouts directly in the browser. It's the successor of the old YAML Builder with a awesome features and great flexibility for your creativity.
Layout development is based on CSS frameworks and the application knows their functionality. This means that it is possible on the one hand, to give the user to complex layout elements to speed up the design process and at the same time to ensure that unwisely chosen CSS properties do not compromise the functionality of the framework.
These two aspects have been missing in all former visual design approaches, which is why the "click and slide" was associated with enormous loss of control. Thinkin' Tags currently supports YAML 4, 960.gs and Blueprint CSS.
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 subtemplates.
The code generated by the Builder is based on the file structure of the "Simple Project" template, so that the complete result can be copied and pasted directly, without changing a thing. The required XHTML markup, the screen layout, as well as the layout-specific adjustments for Internet Explorer are all automatically generated.
The current version 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 already 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.
