You could, for instance, purchase several templates , and select your favourite elements from each, and make a completely new combination for use on your own site. You can use Muse offline by uploading it to Adobe Business Catalyst , or, if you export it, you can actually upload it anywhere. Well, of course, there are lots of people out there who are very good at building with code, and are very passionate about it as well.
Now, with Muse, these designers can start expanding their reach and move into the world of website building, which may well have been a closed door to them in the past. But, aside from the target market perspective, there are a few limitations with the product that you should be aware of. No Pre-made Themes There are no pre-made themes on Muse. Sure, you can purchase templates from third parties, but, the first time you sit down to start exploring the software, you will be doing so from scratch.
This of course has its good points — absolute freedom can be a great thing! But, with a complete lack of structure, things can become a little difficult.

How long have you known about the Muse end-of-life? However, our planning and development for Without Code started years ago, both in response to customer demands and as a natural progression of our business.

For widget makers like us, the lack of ongoing development in the Mucow widget creation system really tied our hands and limited us from pushing development into new areas. When one door closes, another always opens. Prior to creating MuseThemes, I worked as a freelance web designer creating client websites.
Our vision for Without Code is to build a community of users — designers, developers and business owners of all skill levels — who can support one another in their web design efforts and remove those limitations. Thank you! Thank you also to Adobe for building an awesome application that enabled us to build the websites we always wanted. You engineered a fantastic product, and my whole team and I will never forget how Muse changed our business and life in just a few short years.
We look forward to watching and exploring the next generation of your web design tools. Thanks everyone! Publish up some spare BC temporary sites to use for client previews.
