Facebook's Origami Live lets developers test app designs on their phones in real time
Facebook has made a couple of updates to its Origami user interface design tools, including launching a new app for iPhone and iPad called Origami Live. Origami Live lets developers run their user interface prototypes on both iPhone and iPad. The company also released a major update to Origami for Mac with several new features.
Origami Live for iOS lets you interact with your interface prototype directly on your device, and make adjustments without the need to write code, according to Facebook:
While Origami Live will let you run your prototype on your device, the device will need to be plugged into your Mac while you use it.
Meanwhile, Origami for Mac has added major new features. You can now export your code, creating files for iOS, Android, and the web. There's also a new presentation mode that includes full screen support. Origami for Mac has also integrated with Bohemian Coding's Sketch design app:
Developers can download Origami 2.0 for Mac from Facebook's Github, and Origami Live is currently rolling out on App Store.
