Two Steps Forward, One Step Back | Jxnblk
dude behind Basscss & Tachyons lays out some hindsight and changes his tune

“While CSS-in-JS libraries help with a lot of issues, some of the key benefits to libraries like Basscss and Tachyons got lost in the mix. Instead of using design constraints to define styles, developers are left with open-ended tools that tend to encourage one-off styles. The learning curve was reduced, but developers were left with more choices to make.”

styled-system, theme-ui, rebass, styled-components, etc

Sketching an iPhone Lock Screen |
good content marketing for an app that helps catch subtle UI states

“Most bugs I see in "modern" apps are related to the designers failing to handle states implied by network calls: loading, timeout, data-not-found, etc. I find thinking about statecharts reminds me to design these cases. (Which are easy to forget when just sketching visuals.)”

Primarily developed by Colin Cantwell, who also played a crucial role in the design of Star Wars' space ships such as Tie Fighter, Star Destroyer or X-Wing Fighter. Colin worked as a consultant for the team which created the 9845C color system and had been a visionary for computer graphics applications.

The Design Graph | Jxnblk
“I get a lot of questions about how Theme UI is different from Styled System or Rebass. I think the Design Graph might be the best way to explain this”

Q: “Isn’t Theme UI is an evolution of both? No?”
A: “I think you could say that as well”

The Web is Industrialized and I helped industrialize it -
“We’ve industrialized design and are relegated to squeezing efficiencies out of it through our design systems. All CSS changes must now have a business value and user story ticket attached to it.”

Design Systems, Agile, and Industrialization | Brad Frost
“There’s a big difference between having smart, reusable patterns at your disposal and creating a dictatorial culture designed to enforce conformity and swat down anyone coloring outside the lines.”

“I’ve seen first-hand what happens when the boring stuff is captured in a design system so the team can focus on way more interesting things.”

How to tell the difference between a React component and a design pattern — Robin Rendle | CSS-Tricks
“It’s easy to see every problem or design as a new component or a mix of currently existing components. But instead, we should make components that can slot into each other neatly, rather just continue to make more components.”

The Dashboard Problem ・ Robin Rendle
“I can begin to tell if the UI was made by one team, and if they’re an engineer-heavy organization. Or whether they have a bunch of junior designers without much UX experience. I can start to tell which parts of a company might own this feature or that one and that they don’t communicate properly with one another. I can tell if they have a design systems team, too.”

The Vandalisation of ‘UX’ - Spotless Says - Medium
“Hiring managers remained confused and bought the most colourful portfolios with their eyes and the most strident and aggrandising design mythos with their ears. Others insisted on ramming untrained graphic designers into UX-type roles. The floodgates were opened, and the rapids scarred the landscape into an unrecognisable form.”

Trajectories for the future of software –
Harsh dismissals, but not necessarily incorrect. We should be working to blur and eventually eliminate the boundary between code and UI. Echoes of Bret Victor here.

“The problem is that the web invited in two generations of programmers who somehow believed that this perverse ecosystem was sane and that wasting their own time and the resources of the computers their stuff was running on was natural.”

“The difference between a programmer and a non-programmer is fundamentally that the non-programmer was told that some tools were off-limits to them and they believed it.”

“Programming language design is part of user interface design. Not only that, but user interface design is part of programming language design. A user interface is a language with which a user explains their intent to the computer, and a user interface that makes decisions that would not be welcome in a programming language is broken, because a user interface is a programming language.”
