Principles of UI, a Thread

mastodon.social/@zensaiyuki/102683452946911475

Principles of UI, A Thread:
1. natural mapping
2. visibility of system state
3. discoverability
4. constraints and affordances
5. habits and spatial memory
6. locus of attention
7. no modes
8. fast feedback
9. do not cause harm to a user's data or through inaction allow user data to come to harm
10. prefer undo to confirmation boxes. For actions that can't be undone, force a "cooling off" period of at least 30 seconds.
11. measure using Fitt's, Hick's, GOMS, etc. but always test with real users.

Build tools around workflows, not workflows around tools

thesephist.com/posts/tools

When we resort to having other people build tools for us, the tools they build might never quite perfectly fit our workflows, because they’re not built for our individual minds.

I love both the message and the tools. They're consistently and minimalistically designed, tailored for purpose, and have a strong philosophy behind them.
