Adobe Launches Wallaby: Flash to HTML5 Converter Tool

Adobe has unveiled Wallaby, a pioneering tool aimed at helping developers convert FLA files to HTML 5. Primarily, Wallaby facilitates the transformation of animated Flash banners into code compliant with HTML 5, specifically tailored for WebKit-based browsers such as those found on the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch.

However, it’s important to note that this initial release does not support the conversion of ActionScript, movies, or sound as it is primarily focused on banners.

The conversion process with Wallaby generates several files: an HTML file, a CSS file, a JavaScript file, and an asset folder which includes SVG and image files. The resulting files have been thoroughly tested and are confirmed to be compatible with iOS 4.2.

Developers who find the initial output unsatisfactory can further modify these files using any standard text or image editing software. For those interested in experimenting with this new tool, Wallaby can be downloaded from the Adobe Labs website.
