Pancake is an easy way to create and maintain a web page.
All you need to do is create a text file, and save it into the special Pancake folder you create in your Dropbox account. Pancake.io turn that file into a web page for you.
Updating your page is as easy as opening the text file up in Notepad, TextEdit or any other text editor, making the changes you want, and save the file. Your website gets updated automatically. If you follow a few guidelines, they’ll even take care of the formatting for you.
When you connect your Dropbox account, Pancake request permission to create a single, new folder. They cannot access anything outside of that folder. A fascinating exercise in text editing.
