Drawscript turns Illustrator shapes into code

Of his free new utility Drawscript, Adobe developer Tom Krcha writes, “It closes the gap between designer and developer in Creative Cloud (e.g. Illustrator -> Edge Code+PhoneGap) and adds value to Illustrator. Typical use cases are UI skinning on iOS, vector assets creation for games and apps, teaching/learning of vector graphics programming.”


Update: Renaun Erickson has posted a quick demo:

    ahh old days of Postscript…there were a few interactive postscript apps that did exactly as this tool. It was great learning Postscript this way. Shame I can’t use drawscript since am not a blessed Cloud user. :-(

    It’s just a panel. You can install it even without CCM. The description on the page is misleading.

    The very first item I drew in that manner was a square using Logo – later, in Forth.
    The later – as a subscriber of “The PostScript Language Journal” when I got Volume 1 Issue 3, Nov. 1987…

    well, that was it. Sweet ! Color Separations !

    Hi Andrew, exactly, you can get it for any Illustrator CS6 as of now.
