Your Mac

Sparkle requires Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks or later and 10.14 Mojave, 10.15 Catalina or 11.0 Big Sur 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.

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 Internet Explorer and Microsoft Edge
  • Google Chrome
  • The Brave Browser

and the mobile browsers:

  • Safari, Chrome, Firefox on iOS
  • The Android “Browser” (up to Android 4.x)
  • 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.

Sparkle has specific provisions and workarounds to make sites work on Internet Explorer back to version 9 with a visual degradation for some features.

Updated for Sparkle 3.1
