๐Ÿ›  Day 315-316 - Frame Properties + Font Size

In short, added the ability to quickly create multiple sizes of the template and resize font ๐Ÿคฉ.

I dare you to do this in Canva, Figma or any design tool.

๐Ÿ›  Day 313-314 - Made it work again ๐Ÿคฉ

Got the original concept I shared a few weeks ago work again ๐Ÿ˜.

I've changed library Handsontable => AgGrid and re-arrange everything.

I also added settings โš™๏ธ

@conceptual_so #buildinpublic
๐Ÿ›  Day 312 - Cleanup ๐Ÿงน

Tying up a few loose ends in the code and cleaning up.

Prepping for hooking things back up to Figma ๐Ÿ˜

@conceptual_so #buildinpublic
๐Ÿ›  Day 310-311 - Redemption?

I switched to AgGrid and got it to work the way I want ๐Ÿฅณ (mostly).

โŒจ๏ธ Keyboard nav
โž• Add/Remove properties to control design
๐Ÿงฉ Smart components - color picker, image picker, etc
๐Ÿ“‘ Spreadsheet like controls

๐Ÿ›  Day 308-309 - The Struggle

After a lot of struggle got Handsontable to render custom cells.

It really shouldn't be this hard. The sad news is there are still bugs with it.

Going to try to switch to Ag-grid Enterprise.

@conceptual_so #buildinpublic
๐Ÿ›  Day 307 - Choas ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Still struggling with the Handson Table, I decided to try a few other options.

For now, I made it work.

๐Ÿ“ Resizable Window
๐Ÿงฉ Friendly Layer & Property names
โ˜€๏ธ Light / ๐ŸŒ™ Dark Mode

@conceptual_so #buildinpublic
๐Ÿ›  Day 305-306 - Consulting / Teaching

I got a call from a CTO friend who runs a 100-person startup to join a brainstorming session with the CEO.

It was a blast; we set 3 short-term objectives and talked about a grander vision to rally the team.

๐Ÿ›  Day 304 - Framework Battle โš”๏ธ

Spent the day trying out three different UI Kits:

1. TailwindCSS/UI ๐Ÿ’จ
2. ChakraUI โšก๏ธ
3. Mantine ๐Ÿ”ต

Implemented the same login modal with light & dark mode with each.

๐Ÿ›  Day 303 - Dark/Light Mode

Created a small test bed to run the plugin UI outside of figma.

This way I can quickly try new design ideas and see the results without opening/closing the plugin.

HMR I missed you! โ™ป๏ธ

@conceptual_so #buildinpublic
๐Ÿ›  Day 302 - Validations

Tried to wrangle the datasheet library I'm using (Handsontable) into validating data.

One small step forward. Hard to get the exact UX I want.

@conceptual_so #buildinpublic
๐Ÿ›  Day 296-301 - Demo + Competitive Analysis

Created a few use case-specific demos: sales, social media marketing, translation, usability testing & design.

Looked at 7 similar products and concluded there is a lot of room for improvement.

@conceptual_so #buildinpublic
๐Ÿ›  Day 295 - "Perfect" Demo?

Spent the day obsessing about trying to make the perfect demo. You know like the original Dropbox-style demo.

I failed. ๐Ÿ™ˆ

Perfection is counterproductive, instead, my focus now is on smaller use case demos and small improvements.

๐Ÿ›  Day 291-294 - Demo ๐Ÿคฉ

Finally, put a first cut of the new Conceptual Figma Plugin ๐Ÿงฉ

Love your feedback on the first demo! Tomorrow I want to do a punchier 100-second cut.

๐Ÿ›  Day 288-290 - "Validated" idea?

Given existing competitors, a few chats with potential customers and getting the first few early access requests, I'm starting to feel I'm onto something.

My next question is, can it be built?

@conceptual_so #buildinpublic
๐Ÿ’ฐย Day 287 - Cost and Pricing

Known costs + small margin for unknown costs = early pricing.

Goal: test with 10 customers and uncover unknown cots.

Challenge: use-case-specific pricing. Do I create a new LP & put prices there?

๐ŸŽจ Day 286 - Design work?

Did something I've never done before ๐Ÿ˜ณ.

Manual work before the software automation is built. Learned a ton!

Designed 7 posts for customer no.1 using:

1. Figma
2. Canva
3. Keynote
4. Emojination

@conceptual_so #buildinpublic
๐Ÿ›  Day 283-285 - Landing Page Shipped!

Friday is for shippers ๐Ÿšข.

Took way too long, but the new LP is up ๐Ÿ˜.

It is simple and next week is about building the POC + images for customer 1 and outreach to find the next 10 early customers.

@conceptual_so #buildinpublic
๐Ÿ›  Day 282 - Mobile Landing Page + Invites?

Made the landing page work on mobile -- (a bit of a struggle with components in Tailwind).

Tried to get invites working through passwordless email login. Too complex will keep it simple next.

@conceptual_so #buildinpublic
๐Ÿ›  Day 281 - Landing Page

Implemented the desktop version of the landing page.

Move around between Coffee Shop, Library and Home Kitchen to avoid getting bored ๐Ÿคฃ
