HTML5 Animation Builder

by Staff

Hype 1.0, the HTML5 Animation Builder HTML5 has been widely lauded as the future of the web due to its performance, accessibility, and ability to run on smartphones, but no designer-friendly authoring tools have existed until Hype. This animation builder for Mac OS X, enables users to build beautiful animated and interactive web content. Hype's standard HTML5 output works on all modern browsers and mobile devices like iPhones and iPads. No coding is required.

HTML5 Hype

Central to Hype is an intuitive keyframe-based animation system. It leverages an easy-to-use recording system to create effective motions and transitions. Hype's scene editor is powered by WebKit (the engine behind Safari and Chrome), ensuring what users see is what they get in the browser for bleeding edge CSS3 styles. Users can invoke arbitrary JavaScript for flexibility and leverage Hype's own JavaScript API to manipulate the document. Exporting to HTML5 was developed to be as painless as possible; users only need to copy a few lines of HTML code into their existing document and move a resources folder. Hype also supports publishing exported documents to Dropbox for easy sharing.

Jonathan Deutsch, a founder of Tumult Inc., is eager to see sites leverage Hype.

Quoting begins It is always frustrating to visit a restaurant's website on your phone and being treated to an empty page. Hype's HTML5 output lets businesses make great looking pages and reach users no matter where they are. Quoting ends

Ryan Nielsen, the other founder of Tumult Inc., is excited that the tool can take the burden of programming away.

Quoting begins Before Hype, hand-crafting HTML5 animations was tedious and painful to get working across all browsers. Hype tries its best to preserve fidelity across everything from Internet Explorer 6 to Chrome 12. When it can't, it warns users so they are not caught by surprise ... Hype is the best way to make HTML5. Quoting ends

Hype is primarily targeted at designers wanting to add effects to their sites, Flash developers who need the capability to make content for iOS devices, and HTML5 coders looking for more effective ways to improve interactivity.
