After my earlier post on design tools for 2018 I have a ton more cool suggestions, and even full categories I skipped over in the original post. Here’s more cool apps that I didn’t know, or that got released since the previous article.
The Electron App framework makes it really easy to build cross-platform applications. I know this, because I’ve made a bunch. But how do you find out if people are using the features in your application? You could ask them or wait for them to tell you, but you can also use Google Analytics’ event tracking to find out.
In the past few years tons of new web design tools came out. The old model of static pixelbased comps of screens is slowly being replaced with more modern ideas of designing. These new design tools use constraint based components, or even entire lay-outing systems, they use machine learning to suggest you colours and fonts, they let you version your designs or let you design component systems instead of static pages.

I am not a big ‘productivity’ person. I mostly get by jotting down notes and keeping lists (for whatever I’m doing at the moment, or more general things-to-do-in-the-near-future lists.) It’s manageable enough to not have to adopt a Formal Productivity System. I’m pretty happy about that.
I’m working on a new browser for web developers and designers, called Polypane. It’s cross-platform (Windows, macOS and Linux) and really really cool.
