Twixl Support Team Updated: - Created :


    Twixl Publisher lets you use different content types in your app.

    In addition to InDesign-based content created with the Twixl Publisher plug-in, or PDF files, you can also publish HTML articles.

    You can combine InDesign, HTML and PDF content within the same app.

    Working with HTML content

    Working with HTML content

    HTML content can be created manually, using such tools as Adobe Animate or Tumult Hype, or can be pushed from an external source like WoodWing Studio, Canvasflow, or basically any type of CMS, like WordPress or Drupal.

    You can upload simple .html files or a zipped set of HTML files, with the associated assets, JavaScript, etc. When processing a zipped HTML article uploaded to the platform, we'll look for an index.html file at the root level. If there is no index.html, but only one .html file at the root level, then this will be considered the index.html.
