    Funny, the first thing I look at in the repo overview are the timestamps for each file/folder in a project, and yes, sometimes the commit messages to get an idea of what was changed last, and why.

    This comment on HackerNews highlights a tricky problem with enterprise logins in applications that have several ways to login and not knowing which method each user is using under the hood until the username or email has been entered:

    It gives us an opportunity (especially as devs) to find a better way to handle these things. Also know that some industries (i.e. finance) have different security standards that might affect a login experience, which is another challenge for us to make easier while fulfilling those requirements.

    Freaking beautiful site! Another to add to the 3D trend. Very reminiscent of Toggl's marketing site.

    Good call! I could see the two being a little tough to mix. Either way, it looks great. Nice work!

    This is great! I kind of wish the new wordmark was oblique as well.

    100 points to this article.

    Especially: "Three design options are standard in product teams. This is typically to create the appearance of due exploration, but often it becomes a reflection of a lack of trust in a designer to solve the problem themselves."

    I see this happen way too often at my workplace, for this reason, and in a very cold, subtle way.

    Love the use of spacial UI to solve common problems, it's something I'd love to see more of in other spaces, rather than jumping around between pages. You could even define regions or areas to jump to and throw it on a URL route, and BAM: fast navigation between content, organized to your liking.

    But Vince, Clark has life advice for you as a designer. Let the marketing wave pass over you...

    I'm genuinely having trouble finding this untrue ;)

    Especially for a desktop app. Not really sure if this is cloud-based and your bookmarks / snippets are accessible on any system, but if it's just local, then it definitely doesn't need to be a subscription model IMO.

    I wish more apps would allow users to pay for an MVP or a base version for a flat, one-time cost, and for more features, simply offer in-app purchases or a subscription model to get updates indefinitely.

    Bug fixes after a one-time fee should be free.
