Follow the money! Very much indeed.
Most companies are small(er), classic 90/10 I would even say. In Germany, for example, most revenue comes from non-SMBs but SMBs provide most employment.
On one hand, it looks like Invision leaves ample room for a competitor to take their place in that market (niche). On the other you see that bigger companies happily pay more than smaller ones, e.g. what Erik mentioned beforehand: Follow The Money.
Bottom line: Invision leaves behind the very crowd that helped getting them where they are, have been.
Holy, we do so much agree on this. But it's important to realise that most digital design work is low key, eg. landing pages, content sites, etc
IOHO the real cool stuff and serious challenges happen around custom software solutions, and for these linking artboards just does not work indeed.
Agree on the point of fundamentals made above.
Indeed, but somehow Axure does not manage to capture the crowds attention apparently. The UI refresh of Axure has been taking ages. It also felt kinda slow pre-version 7/8.
The great thing about Axure is that it also adds variables, logic, calc etc.
Although there are so many applications right now, most only do a fraction of what Axure can do. But, Framer has react under the hood which might really give them the upper hand.
haha, yes but somehow Axure does not make people get excited. for
We are looking forward to the beta. When would that be available by the way?
regarding backup: I would happily suggest Resilio Sync, it's free if you don't need super-nerdy features.
regarding history: I am surprised. I keep talking with various design teams and designers due to our internal process and collaboration needs and our work and articles on Git with Sketch (or any design tool). Hardly anyone ever "goes back", they don't see any need there.
regarding branching: the need on the dev side is clear but on design? With teams for sure, alone - puhhh. that's a tricky one IMHO especially in regard to the need to change behaviour. Creating another page to which tests and random layouts are moved is apparently (feedback from designers) much more "natural" than using another tool to create a branch, commit, delete.
Agree on the learning part. However, being able to use any online git platform would also be better here in order to streamline processes and move design much much closer to engineering.
Take care, Andree
what's your incentive to use that tool only yourself?
…curious as the biggest reason/incentive for Git is collaboration.
Abstract enjoys the early bird premium at the moment, next to Plant or Kactus.
The plethora of git clients such as Sourcetree (Atlassian), GH, Fork, Git-tower will very soon support Sketch files and the like that have opened up their source files. IMHO it is just a matter of time.
Once that happens, you can simply use any online repo hosting service like GH, Gitlab or the like with such aforementioned git clients.
I would bet that GL/Atlassian are already working on this (and Sourcetree is free and will remain, a guess)
By the way, here is an article that I wrote a few months ago, Sketch with Git. Not yet ready for mainstream but perhaps some food for thought:
All design source files will be free and open for use very soon. Sketch leads the way and others will follow.
Hey Mark, as the shared prototype is running on the machine's local server, e.g. localhost, is there a chance to share it online as well?
