On balsamiq, can you see the HTML, the CSS, and other languages that you aplyed to your project?

I was just wondering, so that if I can use that function, I can make edits to the project.

I don't think so - pretty sure balsamiq is just for wireframing - and I think that's why one of the courses (can't remember exactly which one) reviews prototyping in the browser.

No, you can't. Balsamiq is just a visual tool for you to prototype.

The How to build a website course course should help clear things up for you - give it a try.

Not sure. I've only seen ways to look through individual courses and tracks. Not sure if every course is in a track or not. I think that would be a handy treehouse enhancement.

Diana Ci is wrong. The How to Make A Website Course is not in the Front-End Web Development track.

Then how can I tweak the HTML and CSS?

You change your HTML and CSS in an editor.

I think you are missing the point of wireframming - go to the balsalmiq site and see what the product is all about. Wireframming is done as a design step before any code (HTML or CSS or other) is written.

I know but then how do I add code after I'm done with the draft on balsalmiq.

Thank you so much! I'm going to see that course after I finish the track I'm on!

I simply mentioned "Front End Web development" Track because I watched "How to make a website" Track and it's not enough. In the Front-End-Web all things are better explained.
