    The link is timing out.

  • Posted to Does anyone here actually use UI kits?, Feb 07, 2019

    There are two main types I use, an in-house UI kit and a third party one. When I was consulting with big enterprise companies I would often build a UI kit from scratch in Sketch to greatly accelerate the prototyping and mocking phases. Now that I'm back in a product company, it's the same kind of deal, only I've got more time now to flesh it out. What is the official, branded way of presenting x information, or y data.

    With third party ones, I find they're only really useful as a consolidated Pattern Tap replacement. If I want to see some interesting ways of presenting a chat UI, I can generally find 3 variants per broad-based UI kit that are somewhat grounded in the real world. If I do the same search on Dribbble I will find a lot of unrelated tag matches, and a lot of fanciful, impractical ideas.

    I didn't downvote, I'm only reading this now at -4 votes. My guess is people are probably reading this as self-promotion or spam. Shrugs.

    Really cool idea. At least in Australia these perks are still taxable which could be a bit of a risk you would need to communicate to participants.

    Please do, I'm all about that verbatim "voice of customer" accuracy.

    I think a few of us here are all in the same boat. We've grown up through Dollarmites, are locked into CBA, but there are so many new and exciting things out there and the big banks are absolute laggards. Or my wife banked with Bendigo Bank (shudder) because her parents did. Reading about the Americans on Hacker News talk about their virtual credit cards where they generate a dynamic number per bill, and set limits so your local gym could never charge you more than $XX/mo etc -- that makes me so jealous.

    But at the end of the day we're tied to our mortgage and our QFF point chasing habits :(

    You guys are killing it. There are a few Up users here in the office. The only thing stopping me is that I'm a QFF points slut and will probably always have a big 4 CC for that very reason :(

    Damn, that was me and I was about to copy/paste my comment until I saw this.

    I think this is Uber's best rebrand yet.

    If it's node-sass which is powered by node-gyp then sometimes the solution was downloading like 1-2GB XCode install to get a certain command line feature. Don't you just love modern web dev?

    With their "gather round" I figured it was a long shot but they might drop a Moto 360 style round watch option?
