We’re excited to release the Tiled plugin for Adobe XD to make building microapps easier than ever. With the Adobe XD plugin you'll be able to sync screens, create adaptive artboards, and link hotspots. Team feedback submitted through the Tiled App will be visible in XD as well!
If you are new to Adobe XD we recommend checking out Adobe's short training series, before building microapps in XD.
Step 1: Download & Install the Adobe XD plugin
Be sure to update to the latest version of Adobe XD.
Step 2: Sign in and connect a microapp
Select the plugin icon in the bottom left sidebar of XD. Choose Tiled from your list of installed plugins and sign in to your Tiled account.
To sign in you can use the same login information you use when logging into the web browser or one of the two single sign-on (SSO) options.
To sign in using our SSO options, select the Google or Okta button in the plugin and you will be routed to the appropriate site to get authenticated and logged i
Once you’re signed in, you’ll see two tabs: Sync and Feedback. In the Sync tab, use the dropdown to connect your XD file to an existing Tiled microapp.
Step 3: Design in XD
Now that your microapp is connected, you can quickly add artboards sized for Tiled and design your microapp as you normally would in XD. Tiled artboards will sync as Tiled pages, and artboards with dimensions that are different than your Tiled canvas will sync as assets.
Use the XD prototype mode to create hotspots in Tiled when synced. while all other links and rich media will need to be added in the Tiled builder.
Artboard Names are Important. Artboards must use alphanumeric characters to sync with the Tiled Plugin.
Step 4: Sync your microapp to Tiled
Hit the blue sync button to sync your microapp to Tiled. If you have multiple adaptive sizes, select the one you'd like to sync. As you continue designing, you can always sync again to update either individual pages or your entire microapp. Subsequent syncs will not alter page order and asset placement in Tiled.
Step 5: Publish
In Tiled add any remaining interactions or rich media including video, galleries and embedded sites. Hit publish and distribute the microapp to your team so they can share with your customers. If your teams leaves feedback in the Tiled App, you’ll be able to see it in XD under the feedback tab. Click the target icon to zoom to the associated screen and check the box once that feedback is resolved.
