We’re very happy to announce that we will be integrating Adobe Exchange into Dreamweaver CC. The new Adobe Exchange is a commercial marketplace for Creative Suite 6 and Creative Cloud applications enabling distribution of resources and software that enriches a member’s experience and enhances their favorite tools.
You might be asking yourself, why should I be excited about the new Adobe Exchange integration with Dreamweaver CC? Adobe Exchange provides a number of tools and services that let producers/developers share their products publicly or privately, as well as sell, promote and measure them (we provide tracking and analytics). Here are a few benefits of building products for the new Adobe Exchange:
- Get your products in front of Dreamweaver users from within Dreamweaver CC
- Easily sell your products
- Products shown on the Creative Cloud website (coming soon)
- No exclusivity required – You can still distribute your products on other sites including your own website, we just ask that you do not link directly to any store or checkout Web pages
- Provide a great install and update experience for users
- Get metrics on your product to chart its success
The Adobe Exchange Panel can be found under Window > Extensions > Adobe Exchange and will let you search, discover, install and update new content and capabilities for various Adobe products, like Dreamweaver.
In the previous version of Adobe Exchange – Adobe Exchange Classic – developers were able to publish different extensions, but were not able to easily promote, monetize and track in one place. Below is a comparison of Photoshop Marketplace, Adobe Exchange Classic and the new Adobe Exchange:
Adobe Exchange also introduces the Adobe Exchange Packager that let you package your content into a single ZXP file and create certificates without writing any code as well as developer tools like Extension Builder to create your own panels and other content.
