  • Posted to Probably your first useful Touch Bar app, Mute Me, Aug 16, 2017

    There is s small problem though, if you're using an application that also has a touch bar shortcut, it will override the Mute Me shortcut, forcing you to Click Mute Me Menu Icon > Mute.

    You guys could use Owly strategy that a right click in the menu icon toggles the application function.

    Oh man, this takes me back to the eXtreme Go-Horse days.

    1. I think therefore it's not XGH.

    In XGH you don't think, you do the first thing that comes to your mind. There's not a second option as the first one is faster.

    I must agree with you, the article make wild assumptions and is very light on content and argument to support it. I know it makes a valid point of over abusing visual stimuli in order to create uncluttered and clearer interfaces, but it does so by generalizing certain UI elements and providing examples that do not necessarily fall into the problem-space in discussion.

    PS: Chocolate ice cream beats up vanilla any day, and if it's going to be vanilla some cookie in it does make the experience more fulfilling. :D

    Very interesting article Lucas, since you asked for contribution I've left a comment on your medium post with some considerations about how the team I work with have tackled some challenges you've enunciated.

    Hope it helps, keep up the awesome work.

    Hi Mark, you make a valid point. I wasn't suggesting that sketch will keep on living solely on it's dependency to one plugin created by Airbnb, my argument is that Sketch, as any tool and company, is also evolving, perhaps it is apparently slowly than Figma and it does have some structural problems, but they've made some groundbreaking changes to the way design tools are made and that's an awesome achievement to take for granted.

    Just because Figma launched a cool new feature, some folks are like "Yeah! Fuck Sketch!", but in fact what makes the design tool scenario so exciting is that nowadays there is a lot of competition. We don't depend anymore on Adobe alone to solve all our design needs, more companies are targeting more specific problems in the design realm and in my honest opinion everyone benefits from that.

    And don't get me wrong, I've given Figma a try and it is surprisingly polished and responsive, it is a wonder to watch a company working so hard to create a design tool. :D

    Cheers! PS: It would be awesome to see a Pug/Less -> Sketch/Figma converter.

    You make a valid argument and I agree you, at least partially. The notion that clearer and less cluttered websites are better to use is heavily influenced by the fact that designers can be a little bias towards minimalism (trying the famous fear of emptiness - horror vacui), but for users the perception of those cluttered websites may transmit affordability which can increase conversion.

    I'm always suspicious of these sponsored articles that subtle promotes the product.

    I don't know about that, we've recently started using the Airbnb React Sketch.app to keep our design systems updated, and it works remarkably well and as I'm positive the Figma team will keep working on service integrations I don't see a way for a web based application to integrate with such functionalities.

    I carry the same doubt as you and I'm not sure if it's a small use case if you think globally. Designing in Brazil is a pain in the ass to upload big assets and have to wait to make the next move, internet can get quite unstable over here and perhaps India, Indonesia and other heavily populated countries suffer from the same condition.

  • Posted to Introducing Supernova - Turn Sketch designs into native mobile apps in minutes, Jul 19, 2017

    Hello Jiri, congratulations on the product. I gave it a spin during the last hour and it seems pretty robust, up until I tried to export the Android code, it fails to build on Android Studio for several reasons, one of which is the lack of handling accentuated characters on the resources files names (i.e. í, ã) and artboards starting with numbers (i.e. 1. Sign up).

    As I'm a Brazilian designer that includes words like ínicio on layers and always orders artboards with numbers, it seems that I'll have to create a specific Sketch project for Supernova with such restrictions in mind.

    Nevertheless I'll give it another try sometime to check the quality/style of the code it generates.

    Cheers.
