Congratulations Fredo! I have been using Protopie in Dubai for two years now. In the article, engineers handoff seems like the main topic, but I feel this is where ProtoPie is short.
Project starts on Figma, Sketch, or XD, and we use these tools or 3rd parties like Zeplin to handoff to engineers. I assume most of the designers don’t start a design project on ProtoPie before using these primary design tools.
How can I hand off the specs on ProtoPie to engineers? The article makes it sound like an easy task, but it’s not unless I am missing the point.
I love ProtoPie, it's great for prototyping TV apps. If you're in London UK, checkout the meetup https://www.meetup.com/ProtoPie-London/
Awesome! Thanks for the support. I'd love to join the ProtoPie meetup in London myself one day!
Protopie is great tool, looking forward to see where its going
Awesome! Thank you :)
Huge fan of Protopie
No sense what it makes to the market... No more promises and announces—we need something to interact with. I still remember Phase and their attempts to bring totally new software to the market. Still nowhere... RIP
ProtoPie is already here, available and widely used.
I ain't no talking about the current state of this app. PS: But it's a good spot to place a link one more time. Good move! :)
I'm not sure what you're talking about. Protopie is amazing! I'm still kicking myself in the butt for missing out on their black friday deal.
Not sure I understand your comment. Protopie allows you to interact with input fields, etc. Which is more than 95% of all prototyping tools.
ProtoPie's promising, but it doesn't offer much beyond what Axure already does.
I abandoned it after realizing that it doesn't have a textarea component that allows for text-wrapped input fields.
Axure? Lol. Is this 2005?
We always listen to the features users would like to see implemented. It seems for you it would be this one: https://protopie.canny.io/feature-requests/p/multi-line-text-input
Feel free to upvote it :) Thanks!
wow, congrats Fredo and team
Thanks Graeme! Congrats on Letter!
Can protopie do forms and integrate with some real data (json), e.g. if you want to mockup a fintech app.
Or is it mainly to prototype UI motion?
Forms yes, you can use the input feature and utilize native and physical keyboards.
Real data...not yet, but you could use formulas and variables in ProtoPie. They will get you a whole lot in terms of realism and interactivity, especially for a fintech prototype.
ProtoPie is about prototyping interactions first and foremost, not just motion or animations.
Thanks Fredo - been a while since I tried it. Will have another play.
