Your Mac

Sparkle requires Mac OS X 10.14.4 Mojave or later and 11.0 Big Sur through 13.0 Ventura are recommended for best performance.

Web hosting

Sparkle produces fully standard HTML, CSS, Javascript and other supporting files, and publishes content via a built-in FTP, FTP with TLS or SFTP protocol.

Sparkle doesn’t include web hosting, but is compatible with just about any web host worldwide.

The exception are website builders that bundle their own hosting, since they generally don’t allow publishing from external tools.

Several Sparkle features require PHP support on the server, available on the vast majority of web hosts. The features requiring PHP support specifically are:

Since Sparkle sites are published on a variety of web hosts, Sparkle supports all PHP versions starting with version 5.6, though 5.6 is obsolete and you should use at least PHP 7.

Browsers visiting your site

Websites generated with Sparkle have been tested in a variety of scenarios.

Specifically Sparkle websites work on all current versions of the major browsers of each platform:

  • Safari
  • Firefox
  • Microsoft Edge
  • Google Chrome
  • The Brave Browser
  • The Vivaldi Browser

and the mobile browsers:

  • Safari, Chrome, Firefox on iOS
  • Google Chrome on Android

Compatibility and visuals are degraded in older versions, but this is very minor for browsers shipped in the past 5 years.

Please report any shortcoming in this documentation and we’ll fix it as soon as possible!
