UX/UI Designer Joined 5 months ago
Had a quick look and I like it. Clean UI and straight to the point. One thing I noticed was that you use the same bg color on the page for bva as you used in one of your designs on that page. It looks a bit weird since some elements of the design will blend with the background. Maybe add a tiny border, shadow or something around the designs or choose a slightly different tint bg color.
The app I didn't know I needed until now...
Vue's fantastic. I learned a bit of React when I wanted to learn React Native so I could build apps. Eventually got the hang of it but never really got the feeling that I completely understood what I was writing. Vue is so much cleaner and readable it's insane. I really hope Vue becomes as big as React is right now.
There's so many new products and tools releasing lately but I keep coming back to Principle. Nothing beats the quickness of it. Unfortunately I just saw my license ended 3 weeks ago but I'm definitely extending it soon.
Great stuff. Have to try it out but the reworked export functionalities sound great. I love using Principle but exporting stuff and keeping it good quality was always such a hassle.
That first instagram post in this article made me laugh. 'Think you can do it in four weeks?'
Sounds good but honestly 19$ is way more than I'd spend on something like this.
Still extremely excited to try this out, but also a bit let down. Where I work we don't use React so the code I write in Framer won't be used. I've got some React experience and I've recently switched to Vue for some personal try-out projects. I don't see React being the marketleader (if you could even call it that) in 2-3 years anymore. The code I do write in Framer is useful though, but we obviously have to re-write it so it fits in our production environment. I don't see X changing that. Maybe if you do use React at work it's a game changer but I wouldn't know.
Secondly, and probably most importantly, I don't see our team (even though it's small) switching to Framer for the design-phase. It's something that's been bothering me about Framer for a while even though I do understand the reason behind it. I started using Framer for prototyping/animating by importing from Sketch. It worked great for a long while like that. I don't use it every day but when I open it now I'm always confused by all the new design related stuff that's been added. I don't design in Framer and I don't know anyone that does in my environment, so I'm not going to build our whole design system/component library in there.
But again, I'm still excited to try it out and there's definitely some stuff in there that I'm looking forward to. I kinda like the big competition that seems to be going on between design/prototype tools right now since only good can come out of it.
