Turning a Prototype into a real app

Hi. If I export my prototype as a HTML file, could a developer use this file as the basis for creating the real app? ie, are all the images, icons and Events code exported with the HTML file, which could then be included in the codebase for the actual workable app?


Is the HTML file the best way to export this information?


thanks

Hi there,


The HTML and CSS files are the best ways to export prototype info. These won't be used in the actual development of the application, but rather provide the basis in code of how the developer will create the application in, so no elements from JIM are actually used in the application.

Thanks Danielle. I also noticed you have an API. Would this be a better resource for a developer to use when developing an app from a JustInMind proto?

Hi Daniella. Did you have any thoughts on the significance of your API for developers when turning a proto into the real thing?

Hi there,


The API can help with seeing how the events and dialogs work out with code within Justinmind. The HTML, CSS, and the API will all be helpful for developers to turn their prototypes into real working applications.

Hi Danielle

Are there any tools to use the same prototype elements and help the developers to use the same in building the actual apps? Is there a way to use these prototypes into real files for UI screens.


Thanks
