I am currently a teacher that teachers computer science (back end) and currently learning more about web design (front end). I have a student who has the Adobe suite and would like to build a website. They have designed a prototype using Adobe XD and would like to publish this.
It is my understanding that Adobe XD is not capable of completely publishing a website as there many other steps needed to do so (Adobe Dreamweaver, hosting, domain, etc.). However, if I'm wrong I'd like to know if there is a way to do so.
You are correct. Adobe XD will not directly create a website. It will assist with the various bit and CSS parts, but the coding will still be left to something else. With that said. there are some plugins that will do a lot more. I have not used them, so I can not atest to how good they are. That might get your student closer to their goal.
