Adobe Edge Reflow web design tool goes live

Visual web layout tool goes live to Creative Cloud subscribers

Adobe’s next-generation web development tool, Edge Reflow, has gone live as a public preview, allowing subscribers to Adobe's Creative Cloud service to try out and deliver feedback on the visual web development application.

Reflow, part of Adobe’s Edge range of design and development applications, allows developers to create "high fidelity", CSS-powered websites in a visual environment, then extract the code for use in other projects and applications.

Layouts can be reflowed to produce websites to cater for different screen sizes.

Adobe has also announced a handful of upgrades to Edge Animate, the company’s web animation platform.

Key among them is a range of CSS filters which bring style sheet tags such as sepia, brightness and saturate to the software, saving users from having to hard-code such effects in Photoshop.

Edge Code has also received a round of updates, including a Live Development module, which renders code changes in real time, as well as live hints for CSS and HTML code.
