The JoinMarket Web UI project
is also making good progress
. While I was mostly off over Christmas and New Years, the rest of the team has made fantastic progress. In a way, there have been two efforts over the last months. One the one hand, we explored new design concepts a little more freely from a user perspective (here’s the Figma file
I am working on), on the other hand, the developers worked ground-up from the technical side. The big step is now to get a first version functional and ready for launch on Raspiblitz, Umbrel, and Citadel. This version will not be the most beautiful or convenient, but it will be great for early adopters and developers. Over time, with iteration, it will then improve and it will become more in line with the design concepts (if those concept hold up to actual use and feedback). I think it will eventually be a fairly simple application, but there remain various UX challenges around abstracting complexity and finding just the right ways to present functionality and information to users.
The Wallet Design Improvement Project kicked off for the year with a really productive call. Looks like we’ll first tackle Blixt
by going through a proper design sprint. Really looking forward to see this evolve.
