After watching the tutorials, my impression is that the Xd workflows work are meant for static html/css/js projects.
How would the Xd app UX/UI designs transfer to a bare-bone WordPress theme?
That's a great question! We're focused on the design iteration process, with the expectation that you would hand off to a developer for implementation, as there are a number of decisions that are generally made during implementation side for specific interactions and functionality. However, one thing you can do right now is export images for production. If you select File > Export, you'll see a number of options at the bottom that will export both high-res and low-res versions of your assets (or SVG) for usage on desktop and mobile implementations of your website.
Hope that helps!
Has anything changed as far as a possible Wordpress integration with Adobe XD?
Is this even thought about? I'm a web developer that builds Wordpress sites for my clients and I would love to see this integrated with Wordpress responsive themes. This would change the game in my opinion. Just a thought.
XD is a design tool, not a coding tool. It's possible it could generate some code to help with parts... but design tools never do a good job at coding an entire HTML/CSS page, let alone a WordPress theme.
A machine building HTML/CSS? Ouch. Reminds me of the dreamweaver days when the code was terrible and you had to go in and change it all anyway.
