    So....many....tools....

    This one seems to click all the right buttons (grids, stacks, components, design systems, Vue + React components), but I just can't tell anymore what is worth investing my mental energy into.

      Would like to have someone who literally spends all their time just testing these types of tools and figure out what is missing from others as a comparison thing to see which would be better to integrate in a workflow.

      EDIT: Downvote for what? I'm serious. I would like to know what every tool does in comparison.

        Sick of down-votes on comments. They don't make sense. We're all just trying to discuss here. Adding an opinion should be promoted. Now unpopular opinions (even if right) can get down-voted to bits.

        I know it doesn't happen often, it's just that it feels bad. UX and stuff. We should care about this.

          I agree. This community is dying and then they put a feature in that makes people not want to post. Seems like a silly idea.

            I'm sure DN can figure it out. Most reddit communities get it right, down voting should only be used on comments that provide 0 value or are spam. Not on comments that disagree with you/provide a different point of view.

            People shout "DYING!" far too soon when it comes to communities. There's always an ebb and flow of things.

            Calm down and keep posting :]

            As for the voting; I've brought it up for discussion with the other mods, will raise it again soon.

              Cool. And: given the overall low volume of comments (not a bad thing) and this thread attached to a (as of this writing) -4 points comment perfectly demonstrates: a downvote seems to have no effect anyway (besides the sting, I give you that). I personally just stopped looking at the points.

          I agree. When I came back here, I saw it and I immediately thought, Oh man, it's like reddit. Hides the comments that people think that are bad. I think the feature should do away on here. Seems like having a civil discussion these days are rare and if you don't immediately agree, "I hate you".

            Yeah except everyone here was LITERALLY DYING to have downvotes. I remember posting about how dumb it was —no, it's not going to stop spam, and it encourages people to downvote rather than encouraging them to just post some good stuff to the community. It's a silly concept for a website like Designer News.

            Designer News isn't dying though. It's just a place people go when they're bored (like me now, with 10 minutes free I don't know what to do with).

              Talking about two different things here.

              • Downvotes on articles (good thing)
              • Downvotes on comments (bad thing)

              The difference being that not many votes are required to make the front page, and a couple of downvotes on spam can allow us to police this place as a community.

              As for comment spam: different story altogether. Requires better reporting tools.

    Is this available or in production? Would love to see it in action.

    It looks good! I can't wait to give it a try, having angular components is great as lots of places use it. The focus on react/vue with some other design tools is a little sad.

    I'm still waiting for something like this to replace the html/css/javascript/emacs/git/github pages stack I use for prototyping (which I still find rock solid). It'll be annoying if the preview links have "POWERED BY INTERPLAY" which I daresay they might...

    this seems to hit a lot of the things I'd be looking for. importing Figma? that's exactly what I'd be interested in...anything that extends figma is alright with me...
