IxEDIT: No coding for Javascript/jQuery

Generally, JavaScript is needed to implement interactions on a web page. It is hard to manage JavaScript for many designers because of no programming experience. Therefore, making well-designed web interactions is difficult in general. IxEdit solves this problem. IxEdit is a JavaScript-based interaction design tool for the web. If you have basic knowledge about HTML and CSS, you can create interactions as you like. JavaScript coding is no longer needed. With IxEdit, designers can practice DOM-scripting without coding to change, add, move, or transform elements dynamically on your web pages. Especially, IxEdit must be useful to try various interactions rapidly in the prototyping phase of your web application.


See following demo:

It is to be embedded in the HTML you are editing. Firefox, Safari, Chrome, or IE becomes your interaction development environment. The interactions you create will be applied on-the-fly to the web page, so you can edit them while checking how they behave in real time.

It generates JavaScript code automatically from the parameters you specified. The generated JavaScript code is designed to run with jQuery and jQuery UI. You don’t need to care about cross-browser compatibility since jQuery does it for you.
