Small breadcrumb improvements
More date picker improvements
At the moment, the date shortcuts are buttons. You click on a shortcut, then it selects the date(s) and closes the calendar. Thinking these should be tabs instead. You click on a shortcut to select the date(s), but instead of closing the calendar the tab becomes active.
Alt date picker and a time picker
After the first release, this’ll continue being an ongoing project. I see it slowing down, but never actually ending. I like the idea of having a different cover (e.g.) every month. They’d be a fun way to denote when a particular version of the file is from, and they’d be the one part of this project where utility isn’t a concern.
For the first year or so, I’ll use colorways of the “cubes” cover. They’re pretty easy to make:
1. Choose a background color.
2. Make the line-work cubes the background color, but change the blend mode to ‘Multiply’
The hard part’s choosing the background colors. I don’t want them to be arbitrary. They should relate to the project, even if only tenuously.
Because it’s what I prefer, and because it’s what we use at work, this project is, and will ultimately be, a Figma file. That’s a good place to start. I think it would be cool to pull colors from the UI before moving on to more obvious colors, or more esoteric colors.
I think I’ve settled on the first four colors/covers:
#00a1ff (Blue), from the selection bound of a regular object/layer
#7b61ff (Purple), from the selection bounds of a variant or component
#e249af (Pink), from the smart selection overlays
#e5e5e5 (Light gray), from the default canvas background
I’m still slowly turning components into variants…
I need to speed things up a bit. I’m presenting at a side project showcase zoom call and, although my presentation’s more about the process (work on it every day for ~30 days; post to FL), it would be good to have something ‘complete’ and shareable
More importantly, the sooner I can get his in front of people that can test it and give me feed back the better
- Wrap up the transition to variants
- Make v1 of the color system and styles
- Add auto layout v3 features wherever it makes sense. (Auto layout v3 should be launching this month)
- Writ a ToC and readme
- Throw together a website, which will probably just be loose port of the ToC and readme
- Publish the file to the Community
