Adobe Muse

As an aspiring coder, I came across to this adobe muse product. It's such an amazing tool from what I read about it. But then would like you know do I stand an advantage or disadvantage using this product as comparing to other developers or people who can actually write codes?

I found this article helpful in answering this question. I hypothesized that Muse would not be great if you wanted to do anything remotely custom, and it would appear that is the case. Let me break down that a bit more for you:

Say you wanted to integrate something more than just a facebook button. Muse has template support for a facebook button, but it does not have support for, let's say integrating an instagram image feed. So if you wanted to integrate an instagram image feed, you would need to hand code that anyway. This is the plague of any kind of GUI that claims to allow the user to not have to write any code. If that GUI does not have a feature plugin that supports exactly what you want to do, then you are probably going to be out of luck.

If you are looking to make pretty simple websites Muse could be a great solution for you, but my guess is as you want to branch out into something a bit more complicated it will fall pretty short.

Adobe's Edge Reflow or Webflow might be better choices
