Dev unveils InDesign to HTML5 'bridge'

Ajar Productions has created a Kickstarter project for a tool that takes designs straight from InDesign to HTML5 "in an easy to use and easy to distribute format". The project page states that demand for HTML5 websites and mobile apps is increasing, but existing InDesign solutions are problematic – InDesign's own exporter extracts content but fares poorly with layout, while Adobe Digital Publishing Suite can be prohibitively expensive. By contrast, InDesign to HTML5 aims to be open, affordable, and generate more accurate output.

Partner and developer Justin Putney told .net that the impetus behind the project was "all kinds of requests from clients looking for rich interactive content that will work across devices", and the fact that there is currently "no straightforward solution for designers".
