Adobe takes the wraps off new website developer tools

Software firm launches free tools for HTML5 and JavaScript developers.

New update

Adobe has taken the wraps of a new set of tools and services designed to help developers create content using HTML5, CSS3 and JavaScript.

The software vendor launched its new Edge Tools and Services products at an event in San Francisco yesterday, and announced the immediate availability of Adobe Edge Animate 1.0, Adobe Edge Inspect 1.0, Adobe PhoneGap Build 1.0 and Adobe Edge Web Fonts.

The company also confirmed that Edge Animate, which will allow developers to create animated content for web sites using HTML, JavaScript and CSS, will be given away for free to encourage adoption by web designers.

The products will also be made available to users of Adobe's Creative Cloud service.

"We are excited to put a powerful new set of HTML5 tools into the hands of Web designers and developers and can't wait to experience the beautiful websites, digital content and mobile apps they'll create," said Danny Winokur, vice president and general manager of interactive development at Adobe.

"[This] is why we're contributing to the web platform and making the Edge Tools and Services available for free, including the first release of Edge Animate."
