Hello IH! 👋
I've been grinding away at a new tool in my spare time that I'm really excited about!
I've been doing front-end web development for 10 years now, and I wanted to create a tool that helps people create UIs faster and easier.
I know a lot of really talented people who feel daunted by the idea of writing HTML that looks good. There's so much domain knowledge that's tied up in making something look nice and I want to help lower that barrier, and create a tool that is still useful for experienced devs (How do I vertically center this thing again???)!
There are a ton of awesome front-end tools out there for Wordpress sites, or specific frameworks (Elementor, Beaver Builder) etc. These are great for standing up sites quickly, but are either platform reliant, framework reliant or both. As a software engineer who works on everything from one-page static sites to multi-team/ multi-repo front-ends, these tools just aren't available to me.
That's why I started working on UI Creator UI (<- Name to change when my brain feels more creative 😉)!
Its still very early but its a framework (soon to be open sourced) that works with any tool that creates a web page - plain HTML, React, erb, whatever!
It's still very rough and has a long way to go, but its finally in a place where I can introduce it and ask:
Thanks for reading!
