  • Posted to Projectwise - A platform for designers to contribute to open source projects., Dec 18, 2017

    Big fan of this idea — problem right now is that there are no projects! Right now there is nothing for the DN community to help with. As someone who has started a marketplace before, allow me to make a suggestion: reach out directly to open-source project maintainers, asking if they would be interested in having you post their project.

    Are concerned about selling a product derived from bootstrap? If so, bootstrap is MIT licensed, which means is OK to sell derivatives of it.

    Nice to see some takes on color pickers I hadn't seen before. Been using one with a similar name to one on the list that I like a lot, if anyone needs an 11th tool to check out :D - Coolors

    These are so striking. Was overdue for some new wallpapers — thanks for this :)

  • Posted to Comparison of the most popular no-code web-site builders, in reply to Levon Terteryan , Nov 17, 2017

    I'm not accusing you of lying, but there do appear to be some inaccuracies. For example, you can definitely add custom code to Squarespace. Also, either I don't know what you mean by "Automated Servers", or all 5 options should qualify.

    I love the Map UI for flights — great way to plan a trip when you aren't married to a specific location, as it allows you to compare costs across geographies.

    I really like https://www.uplabs.com/. It has a lot of content, an active community, I like that I can filter designs by design system (material/Android, iOS, etc)

  • Posted to Make your UIs backwards compatible, Nov 14, 2017

    A point I took away from this: implement warnings about potentially painful UI changes, before implementing the change. An example the author uses, for those who skimmed/skipped the article, is changing which shortcut (ctrl+enter) adds a newline to a message and which sends the message. The new UI may be better/more consistent with other tools, but the change makes current users experience a lot of pain (in this case, sending half-baked messages).

    This seems so obvious in retrospect, tbh.

  • Posted to Plant version control for designers, officially available for everyone , Nov 14, 2017

    This looks really strong. In my limited experience with design version control tool, the hard part seems to be conflict resolution — really like how clean/intuitive Plant's approach is.

  • Posted to Minimum Beautiful Product: Stop using “MVP” as an excuse to launch shit products, Nov 09, 2017

    I agree that MVPs are often too "minimal" — heck, I was part of a startup that basically scaled a series tiny MVPs, duct taped together, until it all fell apart — but making it more "beautiful" really isn't the answer.

    Instead, I prefer words like "valuable" and "complete" — maybe Minimum Complete Product. Complete doesn't mean feature-rich, in this case, but rather that it does a job end-to-end (even if that's a small job).
