Submission + - Flash-to-HTML5 Translator: Smart But Not Pretty (

snydeq writes: "Fatal Exception's Neil McAllister takes a first look at Wallaby, Adobe's experimental tool for transforming Flash content into HTML5, and finds the tool an interesting idea with little yet to offer. 'Wallaby engineers have made sound decisions in designing the tool, but what you actually get when you convert a Flash project to HTML5 is extremely limited,' McAllister writes, in large part because many Flash features are not supported, leaving developers to add their own interactivity with jQuery. 'The question is whether there's enough of a market for such a tool to justify developing it to shipping quality, or is the trend toward HTML5 and away from plug-in-based content too strong to generate much interest?'"
