Would love to see this working for web projects as well..
Agreed, there seems to be a much larger focus on companies building these tools for mobile UI. While probably more important, It would be nice to see more tools allowing designers to prototype web app interactions. And allow hover states! So many only animate, transition on click events.
Was super excited about this last year when I was deep in the mobile app world. Now that I am working on all sorts of web and mobile projects... I'm still excited but how dope would it be to have One Prototyper To Rule Them All?
The way the plugin functions from what I've seen in the demo videos seems like this would be easy to link together but the big missing piece is a webviewer or way to view prototypes outside of iOS.
There seems to be a clear difference between tools built for the web vs mobile. The way I see it mobile is a lot about transition between screens, while in the web it is about dynamic data.
We're building something for the web, but it is more of a sketch -> html/css conversion tool (https://protoship.io/uipad/tutorial) than a Prototyping tool that lets users quickly try out workflows.
I wouldn't try building anything for mobile at the moment since the use-cases and even how things are rendered are very different. In mobile we can do a lot of absolute positioning, but website code has to flow with the DOM using position: static. Would love to hear what you expect out of the web version though.
Also I am rooting for Silver - the whole UI design space has just heated up with Adobe and venture funded startups pouring in a lot of money after Sketch, over years of sustained effort, proved that there is a market for UI design tooling. Would love to see the Sketch ecosystem gear up to add more value, and Silver looks like a key player in this.
PEOPLE STILL DESIGN FOR WEB TOO YANNOOOOOO
It'll be interesting to compare Silver with Comet of course -- I'm finding Comet's (admittedly alpha-level) lightweight approach very productive and the new rendering engine really fast.
I actually like that they're seeing how far they can get without layers – this "no busy work" philosophy in other areas could see it even surpassing Sketch at their own game of simplicity + power.
Hopefully Sketch can ramp up addressing some of the longer term issues and keep up their momentum. Interesting times!
Yes, I always thought about that feature / plugin. Think that this gets more important because of Adobe and Project Comet!
Can’t wait to use this, really excited!
This looks great. Cant wait to use it.
however, when you go to sign up at the website theres no clear indication as to if my submission went through. The button just kinda grays out a bit. I kept clicking it and it eventually gave me a "too many submissions with this email" message, so i guess it went through?
I came across this a few months ago, just waiting for the public beta release!
This is incredible. I can't wait to see this app more polished and refined— so far, this beta's working okay!
