HTML5 Development, Adobe Edge Animate
There are lots of discussions about Flash and HTML5 and Adobe’s focus on HTML5 and Flash Player on web. But I believe that ‘HTML is the standard and Flash Player is the mechanism which is able to push beyond that standard. There isn’t any competition with between these two technologies‘. I would like to consider the situation like
HTML5 take some tasks from Flash Player and make it cross-platform and across operating systems.
We should target latest new trade and learn new technologies and use best one (from Flash and HTML5) for application situation. So I would like started some fun with HTML5. From this article I would like to start with Adobe Edge Animate series.
Before staring about HTML5 development and Adobe Edge Animate related discussion I would like to list some points for ‘Why we need Adobe Edge Animate when we have a tool like Flash Professional’. There are several reasons like
1. Restrictions of Flash Players with platforms like Apple iOS.
2. HTML technology development
3. Adobe’s shifting focus from Flash Player to HTML
4. Mobile applications usage and developments
5. Learn new technology and tool ( my favorite reason )
Now let’s start with, what we can achieve using Adobe Edge Animate. The tool can be used to create same types of animations and interactions that Flash Player handle on the web in late 1990s, like some basics interaction and movements of visual objects across stage. Edge Animate includes some APIs for enabling interaction through mouse, touch and time based actions. So let’s start with ‘Introduction of Adobe Edge’.
Cascading Style Sheet (CSS), which define how a site or interface structured or designed. Similar as HTML5, CSS3 Specification (which is in draft), can be use for some great effects of objects in Web.
