Hey team! Really enjoying your tool so far. For some time now, I’ve been dreaming of taking Ryan Singer’s UI flows process and trying to map it to a digital interface. Sadly I never got around to it.
I didn’t have anything like what you’ve built in mind, but as someone who views plain text as the basis of my product design process in general, I absolutely love what you have created here.
I’m using the product to design a system right now and while reviewing the sketch with my colleague, we ran into one recurring issue: wanting to step backwards through the diagram one step at a time. While I could manually add “back” transitions to each state, that wouldn’t be an accurate representation of the actual UI we’re trying to design (where states progress linearly without the ability to go back to a previous state).
Currently, we can reset the diagram to the beginning, but for more complex diagrams this quickly becomes a nuisance.
As a job story, I’d write what I’m looking for as follows:
When I am going through a diagram and accidentally click the wrong event, I want to be able to go back to the previous state, so I can follow my intended path through the diagram.
I’ve also put together a sketch
