  • Posted to Polypane: a browser for designers and developers, in reply to Matt K , May 14, 2019

    Hi Matt, thanks for this thoughtful reply!

    These are all good points and I'll think about them. Making it a viable business is what's most important to me and that means making sure that people understand and agree with the proposition, and find the price acceptable. It seems so far enough people do, but obviously here on Designer news I've been getting more pushback and that's a signal I'll take into consideration.

    Hi Matt,

    I think you underestimate the time you save by simply not having to switch back and forth to retest previous breakpoints. And that's not even mentioning the other features like breakpoint detection and layout debugging. I'm obviously biased but I've been using Polypane for myself for a long time and I've had similar websites taking half the time with Polypane compared to Chrome. Even if you're 10% more efficient at your job that's a pretty good deal I'd say.

    There is a 7 day trial and if you cancel any time during those 7 days you can still use it until the 7 days are up, that's a pretty low-risk way of trying it out. Give it a try, you might be surprised!

    I quite like https://www.catalog.style/ It's very simple to fill out, but does require a little dev knowledge to set up.

    ...That I like Star Wars. Note it doesn't say design jedi or front-end jedi, it just says jedi. What preconceived notions do you have with the term that causes you to react like this?

    I would love for this to make an SVG sprite instead, with the layer name as ID!

    It's fun, but you're definitely not expecting to get any customers from this right?

    This looks more like Adobe XD's repeat grid. It's a great feature that will save a lot of time during design tweaking but I hope they include the automatic re-ordering and adding of items that Framer X has.

  • Posted to I made this site to compare/contrast design tools. What can I add to make it useful?, Aug 02, 2018

    You made a typo on the homepage, it says "softare" above each list instead of "software" ;)

    Nice overview, glad to see it's not just mac-focused too. Screenshots for each app would be nice, and there's of course tons more tools out there so you have your work cut out for you!

    Additionally, scrolling in Firefox leads me to book NaN. Good job! Test your site in browsers other than Chrome.
