Web designers don't need to code
Adobe has released new software that means Web designers can create websites without writing code. Muse has been available as a public beta and simplifies planning, designing and publishing original HTML pages similar to creating layouts for print. The software gives you master pages, built-in tools for interactivity, and offers access to more than 400 Web fonts through the Adobe Typekit.
It is available a standalone subscription or as part of Adobe Creative Cloud membership. Adobe said that it will help web designers add engaging, interactive elements such as slide shows and embed content from sources such as Google Maps and Facebook. Developers can preview and test functionality of a website within Adobe Muse or create a temporary site and share the URL with clients for review.
When the site is ready to go live, designers can either host it using a third-party application or use Adobe's hosting service. Adobe Digital Media Business senior vice president David Wadhwani said, "Adobe Muse gives designers the freedom to build sites without having to learn code, which will help them expand their businesses and offer their clients more cost effective, professional websites."
