It wouldn't hurt to make the entire "item/card/whatever" clickable, especially since the hover effect lets you believe it is.
Other than that, it has potential to become a great resource!
Valid point, it is a planned update, thank you for your feedback! :)
Thanks for recommendation! Well, yes, the site you mention might look similar but I don't just want to link you the guidelines (and have most links broken), but also curate content on what went into building the system and how others think of similar design problems :)
Very cool resource but man those animations are brutal...Unless it's helping the experience, you don't need it. Think of your users.
which bits do you find annoying?
To be honest. All of them. All off the content on every page fades in from the bottom as well as the guideline tiles themselves. It's just overkill and unnecessary, especially on mobile.
I'm not knocking your design by any means. It's great. The animations just need to be used for a reason rather than for"icing on the cake" if you know what I mean.
For sure, I really appreciate your comments, honestly. The original idea and prototype had of course no animations and I really liked it, from the early feedback I got people wanted more. But when this scales, it's going to be a crucial part of it so will definitely think more about it. Thanks again!
It would be interesting to see which guidelines are more popular or useful. Maybe some tagging or categorization to save time going through them all.
Great point for sure, as more and more will be added, categorisation or filtering would prove to be useful. Thanks for the feedback :)
This site essentially is just linking out to the actual guide? Are there plans to have content on your site with guidelines? Summaries?
I only checked airbnb and apple apologies if other ones are different.
For now, yes, collecting the guidelines and some articles around it essentially. But I want to add lots more (unique) features to it frequently, anything that helps me archive the goals I mention on the About page :)
Cool site! FYI there's also styleguides.io, which has 176 examples along with relevant articles, books, podcasts, etc. I've used it heavily in the past.
Thanks, Weston! Yes, I'm aware of the site, really useful, however I would like to take this project to a slightly different direction, no question that both can be useful at the same time :)
Good to hear! What are some of the differences you're hoping to highlight?
Well, mainly what went into building the best guidelines and why they decided to choose certain elements. Also thinking of ways that would help others to create their own. Maybe also a community. But definitely more unique content that provides value and helps you understand more what they were thinking. Hope this help :)
Would be useful to quickly see if anything got updated recently (examples: Google: New TV Stencils, Apple: WatchKit 3 update, etc) directly on the card on the home page. Combing through an updates page where all the guidelines are mixed up could get messy quickly.
Fair point, it is just a short term solution for now. If there's going to be a newsletter, updates might be in them :)
What's the reason for animating everything?
to test things :)
The animation just seems like gratuitous overhead. Like there's no reason for it other than being "cool".
Thanks for the comments, will keep it in mind in the next updates.
Sorry, but are you THE Ken M?? http://knowyourmeme.com/memes/ken-m
We covered this already. :) No.
Had to ask:)
