Re: [ide-dev] Java IDEs comparison


The idea is not to let anyone play with Wireframesketcher. But instead, to draw mockups, write guidelines. And ask developers to follow the best practice and rules.

About design and consistency, would it make sense to adopt a solution like Wireframeskatcher?
I use it at the moment to do mockups for webservices, using the bootstrap elements library and some icons packages.
I am quite sure it is possible to create templates for Eclipse design (platform, plugins, ...). Mockups and a good documentation would help developers to adopt good practices.
We've had things such as WindowBuilder for a while, which are doing a pretty good job at designing pieces of UI with clicks; and it didn't change anything.
It's not a matter of tool, but more a matter of culture and education of developers regarding UX and ergonomics.
