The New Axure Cloud

Our goal for Axure RP 9 was to modernize Axure RP’s workflows, capabilities, and interface. Nearly every area of the tool has been touched to make prototyping in Axure RP more efficient and intuitive.

With that same goal in mind, we’ve also made some big changes to Axure Share. If you haven’t already seen them, we’d like to invite you to check out the new Axure Cloud at app.axure.cloud.

The New Axure Cloud

The first thing you’ll see is the new UI, which was cleaned up to make workspace navigation easier. But as you navigate around a bit, you should also notice that the screens load significantly faster. We’ve built Axure Cloud to be a single page application (SPA), powered by Vue.js. This allows Axure Cloud to update only the parts of the page that need to change from one screen to the next rather than constantly loading entirely new HTML pages.

Additionally, Axure Cloud’s backend has been upgraded to Microsoft’s new ASP.NET Core, a high performance framework for modern cloud applications. We’ve also switched to container-based deployment to support more frequent and reliable updates.

While a lot has changed, the most important things have stayed the same: The URLs for your published prototypes haven’t changed, nor has the experience of viewing a prototype in your web browser. Further, you can switch back to the older Axure Share interface at any time by going to share.axure.com.

As always, we’d love to hear what you think! Feel free to shoot us an email at support@axure.com.
