+1 to this. If you're spending time inspecting and changing CSS values, not a big step to just opening a CSS file and writing it ;)
bdc with the mic drop. love it.
Why isn't there a downvote arrow on DN?
I really dislike the fact that "good" websites can take 10 seconds to load. Something has gone wrong here.
I found it a bit of a struggle to get going and it's pretty bare bones at the moment. Still, I really like the exploration of new design tools, trying new ways of working and creating interfaces. I hope this team keeps developing this product!
So much yes. Please blog about this :)
I'm generally curious why you wonder why. For them a spec that has an HTML prototype is so much more valuable than a static .png. I'm able communicate state, interactivity, animations, responsive design (and more) with a single URL. Unless I missed your sarcasm lol.
I agree. The flogged horse of designers coding aside, if you are a web designer who doesn't care to learn how to animate using CSS, or care about the size of that .png you gave the developers, you're missing the whole point.
My UI design tools are html/css using emacs/git. I use Sketch and Photoshop just to create graphical assets where necessary (svgs, pngs and so on). All UI and interaction design is done in HTML and CSS. The software team I work on wouldn't want it any other way. The improvements in efficiency and final product quality are too great to revert back to creating UI's in software tools like Sketch or Photoshop.
Getting a single piece of software to replace the above workflow would end up in a huge jumbled mess. It's why we have a large assortment of design tools which fulfil various needs (UI designs, prototyping, animations and so on). No single tool can do it all. HTML/CSS (with a sprinkling of JS) can.
html and css i hope
