The newly released Axure plugin of Mockplus Cloud supports the uploading of Axure prototypes to Mockplus Cloud for design collaboration, automatic marking up of designs and one-click asset cloning. This is how it works:
Upload Prototypes with Axure Plugin
Install Axure plugin
Open Axure plugin
A plugin icon will appear on the desktop of your computer once the Axure plugin has been installed successfully.
Log in with your Mockplus Cloud account
Double click on the Axure plugin icon to open it. Log in with your Mockplus Cloud account. If you do not have any Mockplus Cloud account yet, it's best for you to create one at first.
Preview prototypes in Axure
After you’ve logged into the Axure plugin successfully, a window saying: “Please open Axure and click ‘Preview’” will pop up.
Next, open your Axure and click on the “Preview” button in the upper right corner.
Then, the Axure prototype demo page will automatically open in your default website browser.
Create a project
After you click on the “Preview” button in Axure, the Axure plugin will automatically switch to the upload page.
Click on the “+” icon in the upper right corner to create a new project (or select an existing Axure project).
Upload Axure prototypes
Click on the “Upload” button to upload your Axure files after you have created a new project (or selected an existing Axure project).
View and edit prototypes
Your Axure prototypes can be uploaded to Mockplus Cloud within seconds. After they have been uploaded, you can click on “View the project” to view and edit your prototypes in Mockplus Cloud immediately.
Set a valid server port
If you have opened multiple Axure prototype demo pages at a time, you can upload the desired prototype only by setting a valid server port in the Axure plugin.
Click on the “Settings” icon in the upper right corner.
The server port numbers can be found in the address bar of the website browser as follows:
Note: The numbers following the IP address in the address bar of the web browser are the server port numbers.
Type the valid server port numbers in the popup-out window.
Import Axure HTML Package
In the menu bar at the top of the project home page, click "Import Project" - "Axure Project".
You can click on the zip file of the Axure HTML package or drag and drop the zip file directly into the pop-up window.
If the uploaded pages do not update immediately, simply click "Preview" in Axure again to update its service and then re-upload.
