Prototyping in productionApril 29, 2018 at 12:45pm (Edited 3 years ago)
Heres a sneak peek at a new design tool I’ve been working on for prototyping changes in production apps. Would love your thoughts! 👂🙏

🙏Thanks! If you are interested in being in the alpha you can sign up at https://iterative.ly/. We are looking to build this with the design community and would love early feedback.

Hey Tom! Yep, we are super excited about what Pagedraw is doing. We see ourselves sitting farther down the design workflow. A designer can design a component in Sketch or Figma, generate a React component with Pagedraw, import the component into Iterative.ly and swap out an existing component with the new one or stub out a new flow entirely. Designers have the ability to test out how that component would work in their production app without have to push any code changes. I hope that was helpful!
We generate a unique URL and apply the changes at run time. So a designer can share a live prototype built on top of their production app to validate their changes using real data. Designers are using real React components so state management and interactions are managed at the component level. For example, a designer who is working on an app that uses React Router can add a new route to their app by dragging the route component into the React tree view within Iterative.ly.
