10 Useful Tools to Create Website From Mockup

A group of designers may have a brainstorming session and sketches out many design ideas. Then the designers spend hours to finish the layout design. Then they may use tools to convert the design into a prototype or have engineers to code it from the layout mockup. From creating layouts to making prototypes for phones, it can take hours or even days. However, with these tools, the whole process can be automated. So here are some tools that will allow users to create working HTML websites from mockups, creating a solution for a process that normally takes weeks.

    Great list!

    I would also add Anima App to the list. They have great tools to build websites and high fidelity prototypes directly from Sketch that can be exported as code. It even has an interaction/animation editor inside Sketch.
