Hi All, We understand that this is a highly viewed thread on XD community and thank you for reaching out. We would like to inform you that you can use the plugin "Web Export" which allows you to extract HTML and CSS from your design. You can also use Adobe XD plug-ins that allow for extracting HTML and CSS. Select Plugins > Discover Plugins and search using keywords such as web, or HTML, CSS. Sharing a video from one of our Youtube experts on this topic. Like it was correctly pointed ...

Hi Mamalim,

Sorry to hear that you're unable to download the plugin. Could you please help us with some more details like?

  • What is the error message you're getting?
  • What is the OS and XD version you are using?

Please check out this article Issues installing XD plugins and let us know if that works for you.

Awaiting your response.

Thanks,

Harshika

Check out the plugin in "Discover Plugins" in XD: Quest AI. Converts artboards into one single responsive HTML page. You can design your entire site in XD and then just export each page to Quest and setup a domain with them. Also, you can add buttons and videos, animations, CMS, with no code. NOT a prototype, actual HTML.

 

Check it out here too: http://www.quest.ai

Hi there,

 

Thank you for reaching out. I was able to install the plugin succcesfully and then signed up using the free plan. I have tried exporting a single artboard and it showed up fine on Quest AI. Would you mind elaborating more about the problem here so that we can try our best to help?

 

Thanks,

Harshika

I've used the free plan of Quest AI, but I needed HTML/CSS files to share with my other teammates to do development so how can I get the HTML/CSS files from that?

The problem with Quest AI is that they want you to host your pages on their site. That way they can charge you a subscription.

 

What I think is really needed is just some simple way of getting designs out of XD as code. It doesn't necessarily have to be the "final" code, just something that is all chopped up and saveable as html locally. Ultimately, a developer would then take that code and further modify in Dreamweaver or something.

 

An app that ALREADY did this exact thing was called Adobe Fireworks. You could build your UI graphically (vector and raster) and export it as html with a certain amount of functionality (i.e. rollovers, simple links, etc.) It really wasn't designed for building entire sites. It was for making single functioning pages and comps. That made it very easy to hand off to a developer, instead of this redundant, time-consuming laborious system we have somehow ended up with now.

 

Adobe sadly discontinued Fireworks in 2013. It upset a lot of UI designers (such as myself). The app "Sketch" was happy to fill that void.  Adobe has since been scrambling to catch up with Sketch by creating XD. I think they lost a lot of users in that move.

Hi there,

 

Thanks for reaching out. If I get it, you wish to know how you can apply the prototype created in XD to develop the project? If yes, XD allows you to design the application and create a Prototype and then it is shared with the developers to develop that application. If that's not what you were looking for, I would request if you can explain a bit more, we'll surely try to help you.

 

Regards

アドバイス、ありがとうございます。

 

作成したプロトタイプをエンジニアと共有して、アプリケーションの開発が行えること自体は理解しております。

具体的に、どのような手順でプロトタイプをエンジニアと共有して、エンジニアの作業効率を向上できるのか、そのイメージが湧いておりません。

例えばXDの機能として、HTMLやJavascriptのコードを生成して、それをエンジニアに渡せば、あとはエンジニアが必要なコードを追加するだけでUIが完成するのか、といった具体的な手順が知りたいのです。

 

よろしくお願いします。

This isn't possible right now. You can use the CSS code that is available when you share for development and copy that code into the software that you are using to create your mobile app or website. The team is looking at requests to export HTML. It is unlikely that you will be able to export JavaScript from XD in the near future. I hope that answers your question.

Adobe XD now has plug-ins that allow for extracting HTML and CSS. Select Plugins > Discover Plugins and search using keywords such as web, or HTML, CSS.

If you have used any of these plugins, we would like to know your observations on how you found them.

- Were you able to successfully use these tools to extract HTML and CSS?

- How easy was the handoff to the developer? Were the developers readily able to work with the code?

- Did you face any challenges that you want to share?

- Do you have any favourites?

While we are still on this topic, Adobe XD allows you to export assets Learn how to export production-ready assets from Adobe XD to PNG, SVG, JPG, and PDF files. that you can share with your developers. This helps reduce developer effort and production time. You can also share design specs containing design properties of files with developers Design specs .

Like it was correctly pointed out in this thread, Adobe Muse is no longer under development. You can use Adobe XD to create high-res prototypes of websites (responsive even!) that can be shared with your stakeholders and developers. Your developers will then have to translate your vision to code using the tool of their choice.

Having said that, I encourage you to have a look at these videos that will help you quickly create prototypes of websites in Adobe XD.

Designing a website, Paul Trani, Live Demo : Getting Started in Adobe XD: Designing a Website - YouTube

Designing a responsive site, Design Course: Responsive Web Design Tutorial in Adobe XD - YouTube​. The author has also provided the XD file for download, https://s3.amazonaws.com/coursetro/UI...!

So whats the workflow? I see the ease of design in XD but clearly we need to migrate to this path given that Muse is soon to be retired.  Why not provide a tutorial on the workflow from XD to Dreamweaver?

Hi Richard, it definitely would make sense to have a tutorial explaining such a workflow. After CSS export makes its way into Adobe XD, we can have a more comprehensive tutorial outlining a way to do that.

Will share your thoughts with the content team as well. Thank you for using Adobe XD.

I'm trying to get ahead of the shut down of Business Catalyst and the transition of the sites I created in Muse.  Has anyone found a good solution?  Also, giving that I purchased adobe services on a monthly plan and I am losing the value of BC, what is the compensation for the loss?

Hi Preran,

Thank you for the clarification about the idea for the professional workflow - and the lack of such documentation ...

I do hope that the Adobe Team working on this take into consideration - as wonderful as it is to 'Design for Designers" there are a majority of us out here who despite our possible ability to dive deep into the finesse and possibilities available in XD - we may have neither the time, nor inclination to have to do so in front completing an online website that functions ASAP.

So to hear that there is a way to export the design elements from XD onward is possible is lovely - but not to say that, Dreamweaver is not already set up to magically import - in a straight forward manor, work with and transform the same files into the basis of a functional website on the fly ... thank you very much - to say the very least, is extremely disappointing.

I could not help but pour through the many posts in the forum where people are angry, some considering legal action. I have trusted Adobe for years to be my one stop solution for my publishing needs.  Losing BC, losing Muse, needing to Adopt a new program that has no viable end in site as a developer is really off putting.  I hope you guys come up with a work around that does cause  us to leave and ultimately crush your company.

Instead of just evolving Muse with the abilities of XD. ...Muse XD? well,  a step backward in my opinion.

This is ridiculous. Why Adobe got rid of Muse is just stupid. Design to delivery ... not so much. Waiting for your demise as a company. (maybe not photoshop LOL)

With Muse on its way out it is too bad that xd is not up and running and functional enough to replace it.  It would be a natural transition if I knew in the very near future I would be able to export my design as a robust functional website in xd.  I have a client right now that is wanting a website.  Build it in muse is out of the question even though that would be the easiest for me, I have been looking at "without code" and also "wix" but I don't want to invest time leaning those platforms if in the near future I will be leaving them.  It is not fun being in limbo with no place to land.

I just discovered this new application through a friend of mine who is somewhat of a developer (has a good knowledge of coding including C#, HTML, PHP etc) and read a bit about it and made a mock-up project to get aquainted with the tools since I already use other applications from the Adobe suite. From what I can understand is that this app is used to develop a prototype in terms of design not how the actual app will work (i.e. the coding behind the app itself). I was wondering if there's a simple way that I can export the front end of the app into a program that he then can continue to work on the back end work of the app? Or do we have to create it from scratch on another program? Additionally, if you ever done this what program do you find that is 'user friendly' and good to work with when creating an actual application. Thanks in advance,

Jer
