Code-free web designs, enhanced by you

Easy widget extensions for the designer’s web development tool

Adobe Muse offers a unique extension tool, the Muse Configurable Options Widget (MuCow), on which you can build your own custom widgets to provide users extended features for Muse web projects. Your widgets can provide almost limitless ways to enhance Muse designs, with customizable web components, web design effects, dynamic content, ecommerce functions, and more.

You can also sell and distribute your extensions to the entire Creative Cloud install base using Adobe Exchange, which is integrated with Muse.

Adobe Muse’s XML-based widgets are buildable in any text editor; editors such as Brackets can be configured specifically for widget development. Users can easily install your widget just as they would place any file in a Muse project. You can distribute your widgets yourself or upload them to the Muse Widget Directory, where you can sell your widgets or offer them for free. Unlock the potential of Adobe Muse with that next great widget today.

Build widgets quickly and easily

The MuCow widget model is simple and easy to use, and works on standard XML and HTML. You’ll find it easy to encapsulate web components in a widget for others to use.

Create flexible and customizable components

The widgets you build can not only provide cool effects and present dynamic content, but you can also make them configurable so your users can adapt them to any web design.

Easy to distribute, easy to use

Your widgets are simple XML files, distributable any way you like; the Adobe Widgets Directory provides one convenient venue to sell yours or distribute freely. Users install your widgets by loading them the way they would any other web asset.

Create cool, customizable web components

Adobe Muse widgets let you offer users cool UI components for their web projects: visual effects, typography, database-driven content—almost any web UI enhancement you can dream up.

Develop widgets in XML

Muse widgets are based on the Muse Configurable Options Widget, a special type of configurable Muse widget, and are written in simple XML format.

Use simple, easy-to-use tools

Create widgets in any code or text editor. The open-source editor Brackets offers a MuCow language extension that provides code highlighting, code hints, attribute completion and grammar checking on save.

No packaging required

Your widget is simply an XML file saved with a .mucow extension. Distribute the .mucow file directly, add it to a code library, or place it a .zip; it’s your choice.

Distribute over the web

Upload your widget to the Adobe Exchange marketplace to monetize your work; or distribute it independently as you wish.

Distribute your widgets securely

Protect your widget code by encrypting it and converting from .mucow to a .mulib extension. This ensures your widget IP is secured.
