I was tempted by the readymag.com offer. They also don't use the classic box-model and create some custom JS and allow for nice sitedesigns … but in my opinion they are to expensive and not as versitile as Hype. As I maintain my projects I don't need online editing and collaboration and so I am sticking to good old Hype!
I like the scroll across scenes from readymag and would like to reproduce this with hype (see http://misplaced.design/ done with readymag). Every section (no.1 transitioning to no. 2) in the example is a scene in readymag that can be individually edited much like hype. Is there a way to hack hype in having a similar scene transition together? My guess: It would require that the scene transition is not an immediate action but is hooked to the scroll (wheel). Any undocumented functions that one can use to initialize a needed scene and display it could help in hacking this together (scene management under the hood).
@tumult This would be an awesome addition if it isn't possible with a hack.
Sidenote on SEO:
Both hype and readymag are JS based and have issues with proper SEO. Dumping the strings into the HTML is okay but not ideal. I once suggested a feature to extract the content from a hidden DOM node instead putting it in the JS. At least this could be an export option. I hacked that with JS … see forum.
