I’ve recently been in contact with Jens Hoffmann in the last months; we’ve seen each other on two Frankfurt Neos Meetups, one of which were even organized at his company
During the meetups, he also got in touch with Neos again after quite a while – and he has asked if it would be of help if he’d write together his suggestions|experiences|thoughts on the Neos UI. I replied to him that it would be awesome to collect his feedback!
He just sent me his feedback so far. I personally think it’s a great collection of things we can improve UI-wise.
I feel the suggestions fall into four categories:
- 30% are very low-hanging fruit, we can even still change in the existing Ember-based backend.
- 30% are related to other modules than the content modules; so we can directly fix these.
- 20% we might directly be able to change during the React rewrite
- 10-20% are debatable or are things where discussions are usefull
Before reading the suggestions, please remember that they are just meant in a constructive way. I personally think they are written in a very good and non-harmful way
The suggestions have been collected on http://invisionapp.com so far. You can either look at them by checking out the PDF snapshot attached here, or you can go to https://invis.io/MB8O9R0YS (make sure you enable comments at the bottom right).
However, the most efficient way to read all the comments is by letting me know about your Invisionapp Account Email; then I can add you to the collaborators list - and then you can add further comments. If you do this, please don’t delete comments, and if you resolve comments, please reply to them what the intention was
So far, the texts/suggestions are only in German, but all responses should be in English.
During the next week (because I’m on holidays for 2 weeks afterwards), I’d like to form an interested-group-of-people to go through the list, discuss the topics when needed, and create some Github issues and|or direct fixes for them.
I’d suggest that we meet in #guild-ux on Slack. If you would like to join this group, let us know here or on slack!
Thanks Jens for your efforts so far, I personally think they are very helpful
All the best,
