Building apps for the popular team communication software - Slack has become increasingly popular. Since Slack provides the required UI components, built-in sharing and communication, the developer only has to worry about a good use case to integrate their app inside Slack.
At the same time, iterating UI for the Slack app is not a smooth process as it requires lot of initial setup and a backend server. Our new UI pack for Slack in MockFlow helps you to brainstorm and iterate the frontend of your Slack app idea before you actually start developing it , saving time and effort.
When kickstarting UI design for your software or website, wireframe is the first stage of the process. Wireframes has to be done really quick and should be open to iterations. But it is also important for the creator to make an impact at the wireframe stage itself inorder to take it forward. But filling your wireframes with dummy text or image placeholders isn't going to create great opinions of your design.
Here comes our new powerup "AI Image", it leverages artificial intelligence to quickly create an image using just text. All you need to do is just describe what you want in a few words and the AI image powerup delivers a picture that is closer to your imagination. And voila simply replace your placeholders in wireframe.
Simply say "Laptop on a table with window in background" and click generate image. As easy as it gets.
In the end, deliver a wireframe that is closer to the real UI design without spending time searching for images around the web or creating from scratch.
AI Image powerup is strategically placed at a number of places inside the wireframe editor like in image component's settings panel and option to add image in image manager.
AI image along with AI text powerup makes wireframing in MockFlow fun, fast and exciting.
Note: There are AI credit limits for both powerups, for more details visit pricing page.

MockFlow's wireframe editor is made for project managers, program managers, developers who want to bring out their UI ideas in a digital way without a learning curve. Which is why when compared to other tools, users find MockFlow simple to use, fun and having an hands-on approach to drawing UI.
Today's release makes it one step more easy with the introduction of the new "Wireframe Wizard". With this wizard, you don't even require an idea to start with, as you can simply build your page with pre-created UI blocks just like building a lego. And it does not end here, there are three types of wizards to choose from - Bootstrap styling, Tailwind UI and AMP email layouts.
Simply select the wizard, add the blocks for your page, and hit 'Save as wireframe' button. You can always edit and customize the saved pages with the wireframe editor.
Wireframe Wizard is free for all users. Now create a wireframe in seconds and share your ideas.
Wizard can be accessed when creating a new wireframe project from your design space. It is also available from the top menu inside the wireframe editor or pages sidebar.
When we set out to build a static website for one of our sub-sites with html pages, our first step was to select a static site generator from the numerous options mentioned here - https://jamstack.org/generators/ and when we researched this list, the popular ones like next.js and gatsby used React library as their underlying framework for building static sites. And some generators were specific for a particular purpose like blog, documentation site. and a few others had missing features or were not maintained.
After trying most of the tools mentioned above, we found NextJS and Gatsby better tools for this purpose. However it comes with certain catches. Here are our observations:
Although everything is not sour, they are fantastic tools and have a huge community of developers and users. Would definitely be a choice for react developers looking to develop sites and apps.
Indeed PrevJS + EJS became the perfect union for creating static sites.
The essential parts of a website development cycle is Create, Build and Deploy. While the main trait of PrevJS is to be easy as possible compared to other generators. It also wants to be a complete tool from development to deployment with focus on websites. This focus makes all the SEO features like sitemap generation, webp conversion, page pre-fetch, live preview, search index available out of box.
The Bootstrap website builder in MockFlow allows you to create website templates by simply drag-n-dropping blocks from a catalog of different website parts. After forming your pages, it can be exported to a prevjs recipe.
PrevJS is an opensource command like software. More details on how to install and use is available at https://github.com/produle/prevjs
To lean about its features, visit https://prevjs.com
npm install @produle/prevjs -g
We already working on interesting features for PrevJS, built-in search functionality for websites including templates. More deployment options like GCloud and Azure. And a cloud service with features like a/b testing and analytics.
MockStore is the resource hub for all your wireframing needs. Integrated within the editor, it provides easy access to hundreds of UI packs, templates and also add-on tools. Today's release makes MockStore better and more useful. The core part of this release is to enhance the user experience in MockStore to easily discover, find and install for your wireframing at one place.
The new theme used in MockStore makes it seemless with rest of the editor. Now UI Packs and Powerups are better organized with categories and templates have larger thumbnails.
Thanks to the MockFlow community who have contributed thousands of templates to the MockStore over the years. However from today, we have decided to provide high-quality and a curated set of templates for various frameworks brought to you by our in-house design team. It is now available in MockStore.
Powerups in MockFlow help to extend your wireframe ideas onto other stages of product design. Thus, so far to create a Powerup project, it requires an existing or new UI drawing. While this is great for having deeper integration between the wireframing tool and powerups, it might not be required in all cases.
For example, a product manager would want to create a Powerup project like SiteMap or an Agency wants to do a brand guide for their client without attaching it to a Wireframe. Today's update lets you do just that.
Introducing "Standalone Powerups", Now when you create a Powerup project from a design space there is no need to associate it with an existing UI drawing project. Which means each powerup project can be individually created, shared or deleted. Create your own standalone "SiteMap", "StyleGuide", "UX doc", "Personas" and many more projects for your design space.
What it means for us? This basically makes Powerups more powerful as they are now standalone apps. In the near future, you can expect more feature-rich apps for design space to achieve our goal of bringing the entire product design process under one roof.

It is known MockFlow offers the best way to manage your product design process with design spaces, by bringing tools, teams and files together. In this release, we have focussed on improving the "add" part of the product design.
Currently inside a design space, there are dedicated dialogs for adding each type of content into a space. Although it serves its purpose, there is no standard styling across the dialogs and it is difficult to access a particular dialog for adding content. With this new release, we are happy to announce the availability of a single "Create" button and a unified sidebar for adding almost anytype of content into a space.
As shown in the picture above, the new create sidebar intuitively lists the actions for easy access. All create actions can be now performed without leaving the sidebar. Whether it is creating new UI drawings, adding new powerups, uploading design files or embedding cloud projects, the sidebar provides everything for your product design process.
At MockFlow our mission is to make UI design fast, fun and easy. In keeping with these lines, we are pleased to announce the release of two new UI packs to address one of the core areas of wireframing which are "Placeholders".
This UI pack contains commonly used image placeholders for many purposes like profile pic, hero image, grid and more.
Thanks to LogoIspum service, this UI pack contains a variety of generic logos in different patterns like monochrome logos, logo text, icons and 3D logo designs.
Hope these UI packs help to visualize your ideas even more faster by spending less time on searching and more time on iterating.
