I am happy to report that we released version 2.5.0 today! This release brings a major new feature that we are sure you will love – the ability to publish your designs as websites with a single click. We took special care to make the publishing as fast as possible, so that even large designs with lots of images are published quickly. This makes it possible to show your work to clients, gather feedback and collaborate more easily.
Looking forward to your feedback about website publishing 🙂
Congrats on 2.5 @martin
- You can now publish your designs as websites on BootStrap Studio servers with a single click. This makes it easier to collaborate, test and show your work to the world.
- Publishing your design will upload it as a public website to the BootStrap Studio servers for free.
But, do you plan on allowing users to eventually use their own servers as well?Martin AngelovBootstrap Studio Developer
Publishing to other servers is something that we would like to do eventually, but would require building in FTP support into Bootstrap Studio and we have more higher priority features to work on right now. A workaround is to use a separate FTP client like WinSCP and configuring it to upload your site automatically when it detects file changes. You will then just export and have your site automatically uploaded.tasostMember

I spent an few hours using this updated version. My feedback is that 2.5.0 is a delusion for me. The new feature is useless, i don’t need to host a website on a “free” static hosting with advertising. The prominent [publish] button is not necessary, there’s already an option under ‘export’, and most of the ‘cloud’ menus is dedicated to this sponsored static site hosting. Well, maybe the designer could offer a FREE BSS version with no export option but only with ‘publish’ under the sponsored domain, but no need to add visual distraction with new menu and new prominent button for the rest of us.I’d rather have a atom.io integration (like pinegrow) than a dedicated buttom+menu to manage a third level domain under .bss.studio.
YMMV, of course.
But there are bug fixed so maybe there’s more that i have not found yet in this new version. All other important features, new components, and fix to all visualization problems and errors will be released in future, so i’m looking forward for the new version.phaworthMember
I have to agree with marco. I have no use for the Publish option. Prior to this version, I could export my site with one click. Now I have to click the down arrow on the Publish icon, click the Export tab, and click the Export button. AT least give us an option to not publish so one click does the export as before.
@paradisepcr – The 40 components from 2.4 (Initial Release) can be found via: Components > Studio > UI
Also, in regards to new components, I am still confused about that, more were supposed to come via 2.4.X and never did past the initial 40 in 2.4
• Added 40 beautiful built-in components to the library. We will add even more in the future.
• More beautiful built-in components, and hopefully new templates.
Now in 2.5 & 2.5.X there is not talk of it anymore ? The 2.5 release almost seemed anticlimactic. 😉
