Really excited to see what's coming, you guys are killing it.
I can't believe someone could say this seriously. It almost feels satirical.
Is this a joke? It has to be. Please.
Couldn't agree more. InVision going down is a regular occurence and it's a pain in the ass. Can't count how many hours I spent trying to fix sync issues and explain to clients that I have no control over these bugs.
I could be wrong but I'll believe it when I see it. I still remember when they announced Motion—their advanced animation tool—back in 2015 saying it was coming soon...
Could it be Pictogon? I think it was on PH a couple weeks ago.
Looks a lot like all those 2017 trends lists, or 2016, or 2015, 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010, 2009...
I'll save you a click: colours, icons, illustrations, photos, animations. It's missing the classic "big typography" though.
Awesome! I was hoping you guys were working on a new version :) Looks great, especially the dark theme.
DigitalOcean is great if you're willing to learn the ropes; they have tons of well-done tutorials to do almost anything you'd want. Get the 5$/month droplet (that's how they call their servers) and experiment. You're charged by the hour anyway so if you mess up you can quickly nuke the server and start again.
That's how I learned a few years ago and I still go read up some things on the website from time to time, their doc is awesome.
If all you want is to host a static site (or multiple), these tutorials should get you going:
I am personally not a big fan of floating labels. This article does a great job breaking down the reasons why.
A very long form looks intimidating and can make users rethink their decision; if it looks like it's gonna take me 15 minutes to fill, chances are I might reconsider doing it. For longer forms, I try to divide them into sections that are easier to digest. You can go the extreme route like Wealthsimple did and put one question per page, but I think this is going a bit too far and it just feels like an endless survey at that point.
The hardest part is figuring out where to break the form and what should be bundled together so the architecture makes sense and flows naturally.
Dividing into sections also makes it easier to track and get a more detailed breakdown of what users are doing and where the friction points are.
