    I've only tried out this new feature in CodeKit last night, but it works much better than Emmet LiveStyle.

  • Posted to Best Font Manager for Mac, in reply to Marc Edwards , Jun 18, 2017

    Auto-enabling and a large collection of fonts (that gets less organized as I switch font managers or computers) are important to me, network sync isn't. I didn't think of trying Font Book, thanks for the recommendation.

  • Posted to Ask DN: How can a developer design?, Jun 07, 2014
    1. It's easier to draw something in pencil then trace it in vector. with experience, some designers can draw directly in illustrator/sketch with bezier curves, some can't. It's easy to draw something that resembles a logo but it takes iteration and exploration to design a logo that truly represents a brand or idea.

    2. Traditionally, I draw 10-15 small thumbnails on paper, pick the best ones and then draw them in a wireframe style in photoshop. It's easy enough to prototype layouts with Bootstrap but layouts aren't the only thing to create.

    3. Moodboards. Instead of creating pixel perfect mockups, create loosely designed ideas that feature colors, typography and some elements in a composition that will save you time and show you what works & what doesn't.

    3a. Design and development are separate tasks, so don't do them at the same time. Focus on each one independently in the beginning and bring them together at the end.

  • Posted to Ask DN: How do you manage your fonts?, Jun 01, 2014

    I'm aware of 2 options. I used Suitcase in the Mac OS 8-9 days and switched to Font Explorer X when it came out. Suitcase is now called Suitcase Fusion but I haven't used it in years.
