What is the Twixl Reader SDK?
The Twixl Reader SDK is native Twixl code (for developers: a ‘static library’) that you can embed in your own custom app. You get the heart of our technology to use in your app. Our Reader SDK enables you to read and display .publication files (our own interactive publishing specification) within your own app.
To understand what the Twixl Reader SDK is all about you should first understand how Twixl Publisher works. The Twixl Publisher solution consists of three components. The first is the InDesign plug-in, the second the app builder, and the third the (iPad or Android) reader. You create your complete app within an InDesign environment, including all interactive features. The InDesign files along with all interactive content is > then converted to a .publication file. The builder builds the app and embeds a reader component in the app that enables the app to read and display the .publication files. The SDK is all about this publication format (.publication) and the ability to read this format in a custom app. There are two ways to integrate the Twixl Reader SDK:
1) Use it as a reader of .publication files.
Create a custom app that is able to read and display the contents of .publication files. A typical example would be an app with your own custom kiosk/storefront, where you offer publications that have been created using Twixl Publisher.
In this case the .publication will be the core of your app, but from within the publication you can start external (native) code for e.g. a game, an enriched advertisement that goes beyond what HTML5 can offer, etc.
