Our Fifth Weebly App: "Porthole"

What is Weebly?

Weebly is a website builder, a class of tools that allow you to create a website using an intuitive, drag-and-drop user interface. These tools are intended to allow a company to maintain and incrementally develop their website on their own, without the overhead of using a web developer for ongoing changes.

Weebly is a very popular tool, used by tens of millions of websites. It runs in a web browser, features an intuitive, drag-and-drop user interface and also has iOS and Android apps for editing your web site on the go.


What is “Porthole”?

A few year ago, Weebly introduced their own App Center, allowing third-party developers to create new apps to extend the functionality of the core Weebly toolkit.

Finite Wisdom has created several of these apps, the fifth of which was approved and released on August 21, 2019. This fifth app, Porthole, allows you to display a person (or avatar's) picture cropped to be round.

It is often visually compelling to crop an image into a circle. One common use is when presenting images of people. The Porthole app allows you to do so with any image. You can put as many instances of the Porthole app onto a page as you desire.

Here are a few examples of what you can do with this app:
