"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 Suite
- 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 choreographing motion.
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.
