Adobe has released an experimental Flash to HTML5 conversion tool on Adobe Labs, codenamed Wallaby. Wallaby is an AIR application that allows designers and developers to convert Adobe Flash Professional (FLA) files into HTML5 via drag and drop, expanding the distribution of creative content across platforms, including iOS devices like the iPad and iPhone.
Wallaby is being released on Labs in response to the tremendous amount of customer interest after Wallaby was first demoed at MAX last October, according to Adobe. The company invites customers to download this tool, try out the code it generates and provide feedback on how they are using it.
“User response to the Wallaby technology preview will enable Adobe to better understand what types of innovations are needed in our long-term investments in both Flash and HTML5 technology,” Adobe says. Users can access the Wallaby preview technology and more information for free at labs.adobe.com .
