Webflow is on the list since the beginning and it’s even made with the same haha (:
I don’t like the other tools. That’s why. It’s a list of tools I like and used or would like to use myself (:
Maybe this helps to get a better understanding. https://twitter.com/justin_schueler/status/1010199926297333760?s=21
The idea/intention was not to build something crazily useful or whatever. I just wanted to have a visual pleasing and easy to digest list of the tools I like, built within one day, to challenge myself. It’s just that. And I do not expect anyone to search for any deeper meaning in it.
I don’t know how the comments above should be constructive or helpful in any way to encourage people to build something. Just something, that, as you wrote yourself, might evolve into something more.
Apart from that we seem to have different concepts of positivity. I’m not asking for likes or appreciation, but people stating the obvious in a more or less grumpy manner, without considering a different ntention, doesn’t add positivity or help me to improve it.
This would have been different if I’d put this out as my “great new product” or whatever, telling how awesome it is and what it solves. But it isn’t, it’s just some design-web-fun-creation thingy.
This whole design community has, to some extend, become stiff and super serious at points where it doesn’t add any value at all.
The positivity here is outstanding, ladies :*
Don’t know, as many as everyone wants to bring up with their own flavor? ;)
Seriously, it’s just a fun project (: I’m aware of all the other directories and they even provide more information and comparisons, yeah! I wanted to design a clean and simple site within a day and the domain was available as well, so I went for it. Let’s see what else we can do with it. Any ideas? (:
I get that this is quite nice, yet super trivial. But what I actually ask myself: how fucking often do you create a project that this is even a thing you notice and take the time to write an article about? :D but yeah, crazy feature haha
I do it the same way :) And the average file size is about the same as well here haha...
but as others already mentioned: bitmaps. As soon as you drop some images in (if it's as an applied style or inline doesn't seem to make any difference) sketch probably stores right within the file which heavily bloats the file size...
@sketch: feature request :D Can we have separate assets folder where images, icons and stuff can be linked to and updated? (:
We've been using Zeplin for almost 2 years now and it's definitely a great workflow improvement, for design, dev and product people as well. It still has it's flaws, but they're pushing feature pretty often.
Anyway, Sympli is quite interesting as well, but didn't make me switch for current projects.
Avacode works for web only, afaik, which is a knock-out criteria for me.
Basically pretty nice, but missing svg exportable assets, for example. But the workflow is quite nice, as you can just upload a selected artboard (or all artboards) to invision, wich will show the screen in the prototype (as usual) but also provide the inspect possibilities as well. If svg isn't necessary, you may give it a try :)
