Overall Satisfaction with Indigo.Design

We used ID to create a new application from design to developer hand-off. The design team and our premier Angular development team were users of the product. We wanted to use the same tools and materials in a design that would be used in the development to allow for zero friction in the turnover of design assets. The capability to generate working Angular components with styles was a huge game-changer.

Pros

  • Layout
  • Theme and Styles
  • Code Generation

Cons

  • The plugin for Visual Studio Code had a bug/defect - no support for Nx Workspace
  • Assumed support for angular.json files only - hardcoded into the tool
  • design assets turnover to developers
  • consistent styles and themes
  • code generation
  • + Allowed for fast design and mock ups
  • + Allowed for efficient asset delivery to development team
  • + allows for revisions and updates; with code generation
ID with Ignite controls was a complete end-to-end solution that included design to development. The code generation of working Angular components was the key decision factor.
