My sites are interactive and dynamic. The sites collect data and reflect user data the website in real time. Muse is great for layout but I'm forced to use frames to make pages display dynamic data and collect complex data beyond emails.

What is the future of dreamweaver? Does XD provide ANY INTEREACTIVITY?

I checked with the senior management about the future of Dreamweaver, and their answer was that they see no reason to stop developing the product. Dreamweaver will continue to exist, period.

I understand that no amount of reassurance will suffice, but I do want to put other Dreamweaver users visiting this post at ease.

I am marking my answer as correct only because I want this question to be addressed upfront for visitors that will not care to read the rest of the discussion. If any of you feel s

Muse is simply not the right tool for creating dynamic web sites.   It's very limited in what it can do.  That's the price you pay for all that "ease of use."  Frames are no solution, either.

Dreamweaver isn't going away anytime soon.  There are too many designers who need to work with code & rely on DW to manage everything from small & static to web apps and enterprise level business sites.

See below for exporting Assets from Adobe Experience Design

Learn how to export production-ready assets from Adobe Experience Design as PNG, SVG, and PDF files.

Be sure to save assets to the local site folder you defined in Dreamweaver.   Site > New Site....  Example: C:\MyTestSite\

@Nancy OShea,

given the news re Muse are you still confident that "Dreamweaver isn't going away anytime soon".

One alternative for me is to learn to code and use DW. But I am not about to invest in that if DW is going to go the same way as Muse.

Thanks.

I haven't heard of any such plan for Dreamweaver. I will check with the product management team to see if they have anything else to add.

Thanks,

Preran

This is not the first time Adobe  have retired products and it certainly won't be the last.  In 2020, Flash, Muse and Business Catalyst will reach EOL. 

Dreamweaver remains an excellent tool for site management  and code editing.   If you can write your own code,   you will never be a slave to your software.   But non-coders will always have trouble when the software they rely on stops being developed.

Thanks, Nancy, that is very helpful. I think I know which way I have to go. I've been looking for a project... every cloud has a silver lining!

In addition to Nancy's feedback, your current version of Dreamweaver will likely continue to work for a decade or more. Also, if you own a license for CS6, guard it with your life

Very sinister, but true.

Wappler, the only real Dreamweaver alternative.

I'm sort of in shock to hear even the mention of Dreamweaver being retired.

I'm only a casual webmaster, but I've only used DW since - well - Netscape Composer in 1997.

(Damn, I'm old. To me, CSS is a new-fangled gadget used by hipsters. And tables are GREAT for formatting!)

If it weren't for DW, I'd be royally rotated on a phallus of fire.

Holy smokes!   😱

 

  • 1994- CSS was first proposed.
  • 1996- CSS was invented.
  • 1998- CSS 2 was released and work on CSS 3 began.
  • 1999- CSS3 was released.

 

Fast forwared to 2023. There's nothing preventing you from continuing to use Dreamweaver alone or alongside other coding tools.  It's just not receiving any new features except compatibility and security updates.
