About the project

This project is a personal manifesto against the objectification of the term "UX". It's more than UI, it's more than a PSD file.

You can use the project in three ways:

  • select the ux tools and techniques for your next project;
  • estimate (hours and costs) for each and calculate the total;
  • click on the #hashtags to discover recommendations & templates for each (if you have suggestions, with no restrains, do contact me to update the list);


I created this based on my experience and inspiration such as:

Fork me!

Feel free to contribute to the project in any way possible. You can find it on Github. For any feedback (like corrections, suggestions, new structure or features etc.) you can use my blog's contact form.

I can't wait to see how we can improve it together. Feel free to fork. The code I written is licensed under MIT Licence and let's keep it that way (it's only fair as it relies on projects under the same or are free to use: e.g. Bootstrap, Fontawesome, Labelauty, Sweet Alert 2, html2canvas).

Spread the love

Tools used

For coding this project I used the following:

Bootstrap 3.3.2 Labelauty Sweet Alert 2 Fontawesome html2canvas

PS: this project is not intended to be a coding masterpiece. I have still a lot of work to do under the hood: refinements, optimizations, reorganization etc. It's a prototype, but I will continue working and making it better (I'm fully aware the Javascript is a mess).
