InDesign to HTML5

If you're a frequent reader of this blog, you know that I'm a fan of Adobe Digital Publishing Suite for creating Apps from Adobe InDesign. But DPS isn't always a good fit for all types of projects. The cost may be prohibitive for some, or perhaps you don't want to be beholden to Apple's App Store Review Guidelines. Or perhaps you want to create output that works on desktop browsers as well as multiple tablets and smartphones.

Justin Putney, the designer and developer behind Ajar Productions, has proposed a Kickstarter project called InDesign to HTML5. He is seeking $5000 in funding via Kickstarter to create an InDesign plug-in to convert InDesign layouts to fully formatted HTML5 files.

I've known Justin for a few years, and have been impressed by some of the other products that he has developed. I think he can do it. I've put my money where my mouth is and pledged my financial support. If this sounds like something you could use, consider joining me and supporting Justin in this project.
