Hi DN,

I've been working on a little project to gather together some useful command ‘cheatsheets’ for designers and developers: (link: http://cheetyr.com text: cheetyr.com)

It's still in a very early stage, but it would be great to hear people's thoughts – even if that is just ‘I don't think it works, I wouldn't use it’.

There's a lot of room to make it more comprehensive. For example, there are so many more Vim commands I could add, but that's something I'd love to get some feedback on as I don't want the pages to be overwhelming. It's all open on GitHub and I hope that if people consider it useful, folks will start to help it grow.

    Nice. I think I'll open a pull request later that links all of the CSS selectors to their documentation on MDN.

    Good job! It's nice to see just a handful of items in each list. No need to bloat it with all of the obvious ones.

    Cool idea! I've got a few thoughts about the UX.

    • Right now the shortcuts seem hidden in the nav. It might make sense to have these links on the homepage (or at least the X most popular with the option to view more). Something like Find Guidelines site (http://findguidelin.es/) perhaps, although I think they might have a bit too many on the homepage (or at least they're not organized clearly enough).
    • I don't like how I click the nav icon on the right, but the content is all the way on the left. It's fine for mobile (and probably better UX in general to have the icon on the right), but it's a bit jarring on a desktop screen.

    Hope these thoughts provide some useful direction. Looking forward to seeing more!

      Thanks for your feedback; valid all around, I think. It definitely makes sense to have some links on the homepage and generally make navigation to the content quicker and easier.

      As for the nav icon, it could possibly do with appearing at a narrower breakpoint. I agree it's awkward on desktop to go from right to left like that.

        I suppose the right to left issue could also be fixed by how items are arranged on the menu (once you get some more links on there). Oozled (http://oozled.com/) uses a similar nav pattern to what you had when I commented (looks like yours has been changed now), and does a decent job of dealing with this issue by arranging the links in columns. That only works because they have a large amount of links though (which I'm sure you will have over time time too).

        Digging the new nav for this amount of links though. Just worth considering how this scales on desktop as you add more links (could get awkward looking with many more additions).

        Side note, might be worth considering adding something at the bottom of a shortcut list on how to create custom shortcuts for said program (when applicable).

        Cool site though. It would be great to have a single place to find all this. Will be bookmarking for later use!

    Looks great! As someone else mentioned, with the cool logo you have, you should add a nice fav icon!

    nice :)

    search / filter... and a favicon is my only request.

    Thanks for making this! Git is especially useful for me. For people looking for a desktop version, check out "CheatSheet" - I find it to be insanely useful (just make sure you set the delay time to 2+ seconds otherwise it gets in the way of most commands):

      No worries! Let me know if there are any other Git commands you use regularly that would be useful to include (if not for yourself, for others).

      Good find on CheatSheet, looks handy.

    you should make a print version for all those shortcuts. I would defiantly print them out, and have laying next to me.. :-)

    cool man. lots missing but I assume it's in progress. Search feature is definitely a must– not going to read every line to find what I need. A list for After Effects would be great too ;)

      Thanks for the feedback :)

      Yes, definitely still a lot to do. Progress is slowly but steadily being made around my day job and family! Search is absolutely at the top of that list, though.

    Apologies for the odd link above – didn't realise it would auto-link and I was in Markdown mode.
