    Same thing as yesterdays post about CSS frameworks or whatever that was about. How does a simple list article get this amount of upvotes this quick? Same account, same shit type of article. Someone's upvoting with multiple accounts.

    Why does this even have a bunch of upvotes, this is just a outdated and useless list article without even linking to the examples given.

    I'm not trying to downplay his product in any way, I actually used UX Power Tools a long time ago myself and I liked it. Hell if I think of UI kits, UX Power Tools is one of the first that comes to mind since I've seen it everywhere for quite a long time already. But if I'm looking for genuine opinions on why I would use something, I wouldn't be interested in hearing a creator of that something praise his product to me. Of course he's going to tell me it's awesome and the best and it improves his workflow in every single way possible. Why wouldn't he?

    If I'm asking 'why would I watch TV on a TV screen and not on my phone?' and Philips would respond 'well we've watched countless of hours of TV on our TV's and it's been awesome looking at our HD 4k screens because they're the best' it wouldn't make sense to me either.

    I do have to mention that the big self promotion link has been edit and toned down aswel since I posted my comment.

    It's downvoted because half of your post is self promotion. You even put extra attention on the link to your product by making it bigger and bold.

    Visually it looks great. However when I first opened the page I tried to scroll down due to the illustration making it seem (for me) as if there's more content to be found. I also didn't notice the input fields at first. They're not seperated and besides my cursor changing on hover there's no visual clue that you're able to do something there.

    I know Marvel has a iOS app that allows some prototyping. Never tried it though. The Invision app also has some collaboration/prototyping features if I'm correct, but again, never tried that. Honestly wouldn't even think of trying to do such stuff on my phone.

    Jup. Also a ton of 'x times the best x for x'-list articles that 9/10 times go to some random (usually personal) website and the other 1/10 times it's a medium article and it's the writer posting it.

    A week or 2 or so ago someone asked DN 'what are the best designers to follow on twitter' which was a great question imo. I think a day later the same person wrote a list-article based on the comments on that tread, posted it here and received a ton of upvotes. Bums me out tbh.

    If you're making every possible modal a seperate component the system isn't going to scale that well. I'd only recommend that for very small projects. The answer to your question also kinda depends on if you're building a actual component library or a sketch file containing all your components. I prefer using something like BEM naming.
