Rather broken on Firefox. Clicking the green button does nothing.
I am a bit surprised that the entire Uber design team didn't quit or revolt during this process.
Color Oracle is another great app for OSX that helps you simulate various versions of color blindness.
As one of my designers just said, "I just put my fist through my monitor."
Yes. It's completely unrealistic to expect constructive crits when one just throws a tiny screenshot without any context on dribbble. I'd also argue that asking hundreds of people for a crit is a recipe for failure. A real crit—a good crit—requires context and comes best from a very small group, not the masses. This is also why I've never viewed dribbble as a feedback/crit platform. Dribbble is a platform for showing off, for quick "look what I did" posts. It's right there in the header: "show and tell." It's not for solid constructive crits (although they can and do happen every now and then). So, should we really expect anything more than "nice job" from dribbble comments? I don't think so.
The Sketch team has every reason to be concerned. Just as Adobe has plenty of reason to be very worried about Sketch. While I don't like the idea of Adobe crushing Sketch, this market (design tools) is in sore need of more competition. Sketch undoubtedly made Adobe wake up to the realization that their current toolset was inadequate. And now that Adobe has taken this step with Comet, Sketch knows they need to step up their game as well. In the end, this is a very good thing for us as designers.
Yes. It sounds very much like observation from a filter bubble rather than looking at the design landscape as a whole.
This is exactly why I really like Zooom2, a little utility that lets you grab anywhere on a window to move or resize them. Super handy.
I find your comment far more dickish than Eli's post & tweet.
I'd say what you're describing is still a CMS, albeit a lightweight one. Github pages is a CMS as well—tools for managing contend and building a site, as opposed to just a server to store and host a site.
Ghost has been that for me, for various projects. I host my own Ghost install on Digital Ocean, and that setup strikes a great balance between simple front-end tools, solid hosting, and a good environment where I can get in there and mod code as much as I'd like.
