    I can see why the app was shared, it's super cool and intuitive. I just shared it with my coworkers.

      Thanks Paul! If your team has any feedback, please share. We're still early in the "build what people ask for" phase.

    This is incredible. I opened it on my phone and was like ha, no way this will work on my phone but hey! It does!

    Feature req - a quicklink option to share with someone immediately.

    Also, can my sessions be saved ao that if I close my browser and open it again, the changes persist?

      Thanks, Rohan!

      You should be able to share the url from your browser when you're in a doc. Your changes will definitely persist when you reload the page! If they don't, let me know and we'll fix it :)

      Just wanted to let you know we that we got panning and zooming working on the phone. Should work better than the first time you tried! :)

      Thanks for the feedback, Edwin!

      We're working on predefined components. We're trying to figure out how to get the efficiency of templates without adding the complexity that comes with navigating a library. We're leaning towards defining your own components. If you have any suggestions, I'd love to hear them :)

        Something like Skitch's shape library on the iphone? It's super basic and simple.

        Maybe creating your own lib could bw a premium feature. I'd pay for that.

    I love this!! It's so simple and easy to use! I really like how the same keyboard+mouse commands that I use on photoshop work here as well. I am definitely going to use this soon for my next project. Just curious - how many weekends did it take you guys to create this product?

      Thanks, John! We appreciate the feedback.

      We made the first version over a single weekend. Since then we've spent a couple months worth of weekends on it. This is actually our first week working on it full time though. We're excited!

    Nice job! I'd love to hear about the good/bad of building an application like this in Om/React.

      Thanks, Jason!

      If you're interested in a designer's take; I love it. Learning it was hard for me, but now that I'm comfortable with it my workflow is much faster. I can go into detail, but Daniel does all the heavy lifting. I'll ask him to come in and share his thoughts.

      The only downside so far is that React doesn't have very good support for SVG tags. We had to modify Om and React to add the tags that we need.

      It's really nice to program in ClojureScript on the frontend. Feels a lot like programming on the backend. For a good example, CircleCI's frontend (which I also worked on) is open-sourced here: https://github.com/circleci/frontend

    Loved Precursor the moment I found it!

    One problem I had though, was finding my sketch once I closed my tab or hit refresh... is there a way to save a "canonical url" for the sketch so I can access it later?

      Appreciate the feedback, Daniel, thanks!

      Each doc is generated with a unique url, unless you meant something else by "canonical". Are you losing your changes on refresh? If you found a bug we can fix it for you real quick :)

      Also, if you're logged in Precursor will keep track of the docs that you edit, which you can access from "Your Documents" in the side menu.

        Oh, nice! That's exactly what I meant.

        Forgot to add that I tried it way back in November, so you probably updated a lot since then :P
