Three topics regarding the development of Bootstrap Shuffle

I would like to share with you three topics regarding the development of Bootstrap Shuffle!

1. Hackers, Hunters and Designers

At the beginning of the year we appeared on the homepage of Hacker NewsProduct Hunt (#1 Product of the Day) and Webdesigner News. Thanks to that we collected a lot of valuable feedback.

I would like to thank all who contributed to this! ❤️

2. New features

Last week we have introduced two new features that you can already use today:

 🔥 public/ – When you export your project there is already a compiled HTML/CSS in this directory. If you do not want to run npm, you don’t have to! 🙂

🔥 Component Settings (beta) – Our biggest update so far! We have added the possibility to edit content (texts and images) to the library of our components.

We are now collecting feedback from the first users and for the next few weeks this is where we will focus the most.

3. New features after new features

We are creating a tool that is supposed to speed up your work and help you deliver flawless projects.

We will be gradually adding new export options and we have decided that the first new form of export will be.. React!

We are still wondering if the exported project should use:

  • create-react-app
  • next.js
  • Gatsby

What do you think about it? You can contact me at dawid@bootstrapshuffle.com

The importance of customer onboarding

Do you think that, after several months of working with the tool, everything is simple and understandable for each user? It may sound surprising, but it isn’t so easy all the time! 

Only last week we obtained over 100 paying customers who give us valuable feedback. 

We have already started implementing the so-called progressive user onboarding. For example:

  • when you add the first component you can see a tooltip informing you about the possibilities of change of styles, fonts
  • when the user enters Change Styles for the first time, he or she can see a help modal with all possibilities 

Our onboarding can be still be improved and that’s exactly what we are working on right now!

Bootstrap builder for busy developers

After 11 years of work in web-development, I have learned that there will always not be enough time for a perfect completion of a project.

Therefore, what one has to do is as much automation as possible, elimination of repetitive activities, improvement of the processes in the known activities, as well as the as quick as possible proceeding with the difficult tasks which are usually left for the end of the project (interactions, elaboration of the details, back-end integration etc.).

That’s why we have created Bootstrap Shuffle. This tool is to help developers ship faultless projects on time, within a presumed budget and without stress. Work with Bootstrap Shuffle is about:

  1. Creating a layout from the components library.
  2. Adjusting the styles (fonts, colors, margins etc.).
  3. Exporting the project and further work on the details in your favorite IDE, eg. Visual Studio.

This means that it maximally accelerates the initial stages of the project so that you have more time and can focus on perfecting the details.
