Google Web Designer Available For Linux

Google Web Designer, a tool developed by Google which is currently in beta, is finally available for Linux. The following Linux distributions are currently supported: Ubuntu, Debian, OpenSUSE and Fedora.

Google Web Designer is a program for creating interactive HTML5 websites and ads for any device. Using it, you can create content using drawing tools, text, 3D objects, add animations and Google Fonts directly from the Google Web Designer interface and more. The tool "outputs clean human-readable HTML5, CSS3, and Javascript".

The application isn't yet available in Google's official repository so you won't get automatic updates like you get with other Google products for Linux, like Google Chrome. So for now, you must check when a new version is released and manually download and install it.

Also, Google Web Designer doesn't integrate with Unity's global menu for now. Other than that, the application worked great in my test under Ubuntu 14.04.

Arch Linux users can get Google Web Designer via AUR.
