Professional support is just a click away - Axure to HTML slicing
Graphic designers specializing in website design use a range of tools and techniques that improve performance and provide top quality services. One of the more important work stages for a designer is prototyping – that is the creation of a concept draft of a future website. As much as the development of basic, or advanced templates, is the bread and butter for a web designer, converting Axure to HTML is a process that extends beyond their base competences.
Tailor-made Axure to CSS coding
Axure is an important tool employed by professional graphic designers. Despite having powerful competition, every experienced graphic designer has worked with this platform at least for a short time. For us as programmers, Axure to HTML slicing is one of our main tasks, meaning that we are fully aware of the pros and cons of this software when thinking of real network environment applications. Therefore, we are able to provide programming support for independent graphic designers, as well as interactive agencies, when converting a graphic design into HTML/ CSS codes that are comprehensive to web browsers.
Indeed, the application offers an Axure to CSS feature, but the process is automated and is useful for overview only. The feature is useless however, when we are developing a website or application intended to be usable, user-friendly and easy to develop further. The main issue for the machine-generated HTML code is the semantic hollowness, or the lack of a content-describing structure – ultimately making the impression as if we were talking to a person with no facial expression. Much like a person feeling uncomfortable in such a conversation, the indexing bots are also reluctant to track such a website, resulting in a poor Google ranking.
Automation is best used sensibly
One may respond to the above claim by asserting that there were no methods for semantic descriptions of content 20 years ago, and yet such websites still exist and have good rankings in Google. This is true, but their good ranking may be due to their years of history – these websites had endured and now speak for themselves. There are more issues to point out however. It is worth noting that automatic Axure to HTML conversion will struggle with performance issues, resulting in fewer mobile users. Moreover, having many, predefined constant values contributes to higher costs of programming services and more work hours needed to further develop the project.
Our proposition – professional Axure to HTML conversion
After reading the above list of complaints, one may think we are opposed to this application in general. Nothing farther from the truth – we applaud anyone willing to fully unleash its potential with the help of a qualified team of programmers, who would, not unlike bull fighters in an arena, keep all the possible problems in check. Our many years of experience in Axure to CSS coding make it an enjoyable process but, most importantly, this experience means that we can transform an HTML/ CSS code into a potential competitive advantage!
