In versions of XD 22.0 and later, you can view and copy CSS snippets by selecting elements on the page shared for development. See Weekly Challenge : View and Copy CSS Snippets in XD for more info.

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.

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?

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.

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

I really love XD And everything that you can do with it to design websites and applications. However with the world doing this no code movement, and companies like webflow and Divi out there. Is there a way that XD can evolve into something like that, where you can design and do the prototype but behind the screens it's creating the code that is needs to a fully functioning website, and with clients you can still send them a prototype before creating the actual website.

Hi, 

 

I recently discovered Adobe XD to create my web design portfolio. I am about ready to export it to become a live website, but now I am scared I don't know how to do that. 

 

What is the best way to convert my Adobe XD website to a live webpage? I have creative cloud, so I am not worried if I have to download another adobe product. 

 

Thanks!

I've got some bad news for you.  XD is merely a prototyping tool.  Ideally, you hand off your prototype to an experienced web developer who can hopefully turn your vision into a working website with HTML, CSS and JavaScript code.  Otherwise, you need good coding skills and an ability to create sites in Dreamweaver or similar code editor.

 

If not an experienced coder, ditch XD and look at Adobe Portfolio.  It's free with your paid Creative Cloud plan.  You can have a working site up and running in less than 30 minutes. Hosting is included, no coding skills required.

Thanks Nancy! Super frustrating. I was previously using Wix, but switched to XD thinking it would be a better design tool. Turns out it's great for designing, but not for the execution of the website I need.

Yes, Wix, Squarespace, WordPress, etc. are all website builders or content mananagement systems. They are nothing like a design app such as XD. As you said, XD is a great design app... but assumes a developer will turn the design into code to make it a working website. Sorry you had to learn that the roundabout way.
