Adobe Edge Animate CC is a powerful, flexible program for creating and publishing animations for the web. In this chapter, I introduce you to many features of Adobe Edge Animate CC, including essentials such as the Stage, the Timeline, and familiar drawing tools. And I tell you about the options that Edge Animate provides for publishing and saving files, as well as choices it offers for your interface language and for web-friendly fonts. For those who like to dive below the surface, I describe the framework of the JavaScript API and working with native HTML in the code panels that Edge Animate places at your disposal. And — probably most important in this day and age of multiple screen sizes — you find out about creating a responsive web design that resizes itself to fit various devices.
