WebCode is a vector drawing app that instantly generates JavaScript+Canvas, CSS+HTML or SVG code. While you are designing HTML5 games, infographics or web user interfaces, WebCode tirelessly writes the code for you!

Developed from the ground up with resolution independence in mind, the code generated by WebCode works great on both Retina and non-Retina displays. WebCode also imports SVG and PSD files, so if you already have some of these, you can easily reuse them.

If you are doing a lot of HTML5 Canvas drawing, WebCode will become your best friend. You will no longer have to write the drawing code by hand. Your drawings will be converted to JavaScript code instantly, saving you countless hours of tedious work. Most importantly, the generated code is nice, clean and readable. WebCode even lets you conveniently copy small JavaScript snippets just when you need them.

Stop writing CSS3 gradients, shadows and media queries by hand - from now on, WebCode will do that for you. In fact, it will convert as much of your drawings as possible to CSS+HTML code! Rectangles, rounded rectangles, ovals, texts, images, gradients, inner and outer shadows, strokes and fills are all well supported. And for things like béziers that simply cannot be converted to CSS+HTML, WebCode will let you know by generating helpful warnings.

SVG shines when making infographics, and WebCode is a great tool that instantly transforms your drawings to readable, succinct and beautiful SVG code. The code is shown in real time - you can see it change and grow! This is not only really cool to look at, but it is also a great way to learn SVG, JavaScript+Canvas and CSS. All of these features are designed to save your time, so you can focus on what is really important - the content itself.

Version 1.1.1
Review by VeryVito

Fantastic, and works great with PaintCode, too! - The app itself is amazing, but I was even more impressed with the ability to copy and paste items from PaintCode to WebCode and BAM! Instant Web AND Objective-C code from the same initial drawings. This not only cuts time off of hand-coding vector graphics, but also removes the learning barrier that might prevent developers from even considering it in the first place. Truly amazing software.

Review by Noznedem

Terrible - This app is trash. Terrible quality (when used with retina display), works horribly when trying to import svg files built in other apps, and is extremely slow. I really wish I could get my money back.

Version 1.2
Review by hiptrigger

Minimal value if one owns any other vector tools - No rotation of objects, no snapping to grid, no smart alignment guides, but most of all no direct editing of code in the code “preview” window.

Version 1.2
Review by Ben from Chicago

In need of an update and/or merge with PaintCode - Two years ago, I could develop a custom interface and deploy it to iOS via PaintCode or Canvas via WebCode. That broke pretty quickly when PaintCode developed faster than WebCode. It’s sad, because we would be using PaintCode/WebCode instead of Sketch across our organization if we could deploy to any platform from one file.
