  • CreateJS is library that while available separately was also adopted by Adobe as a replacement for Wallaby in CS6. Unlike Wallaby, which was a standalone program, the "Toolkit for CreateJS" only works as a plug-in inside Flash Professional; it generates output for the HTML5 canvas, animated with JavaScript.[4][5] Around December 2013, the toolkit was integrated directly into Flash Professional CC.[6][7]
  • Adobe Edge Animate was designed to produce HTML5 animations directly.[8]
