Google Web Designer made available for Ubuntu

Google Web Designer according to Google is an advanced web application built with HTML5 which lets you design and build HTML5 advertisements and other web content using an integrated visual and code interface. Using Google Web Designer’s design view you can create content using drawing tools, text, and 3D objects, and you can animate objects on a timeline. Once you’re done creating your content, Google Web Designer outputs clean human-readable HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript.

The Google Web Design Beta release now supports all Linux distributions (Debian/Ubuntu/Fedora/openSUSE) but not yet available officially in Google’s official repository meaning regular updates won’t be available yet.


Install Steps:

sudo dpkg -i google-webdesigner_current_i386.deb

64bit OS


sudo dpkg -i google-webdesigner_current_amd64.deb
