Product Codename: "Thermo"
"Thermo" is an upcoming Adobe product that makes it easy for
designers to create rich Internet application UIs. Thermo allows
designers to build on familiar workflows to visually create working
applications that easily flow into production and development.
- Use drawing tools to create original graphics, wireframe an
application design, or manipulate artwork imported from Adobe Creative
- Turn artwork from Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, or Fireworks
directly into functional components that use the original artwork as a
- Define and wire up interactive behavior, such as what to do when a user clicks on something, without having to write code.
- Easily design UIs that work with dynamic data, such as a list
of contacts or product information, without having access to the actual
data source. Design-time sample data can be used as a realistic
placeholder when laying out an application, testing interactivity, and
Applications created in Thermo are Flex applications that can be
loaded directly into Flex Builder, providing a great roundtrip workflow
for designers collaborating with developers. The designer's work can be
incorporated directly into the production application with no loss of
fidelity, and designers can continue to refine the design throughout
the iterative development process.
