This week, we share tips for crafting component variants to avoid the dreaded variant-explosion problem.
- Bryan Maniotakis asks about Figma variants on GitHub: Based on your experience, is this method sustainable? Is forcing the user to hide/show layers a better option to reduce complexity? Should I break out the component into more subcomponents to create fewer variants, but which causes more clicking around?
- Brian shared the August Wi-Fi Smart Lock as a nice upgrade to your home’s deadbolts. Auto-locking and unlocking are great features, and the ability to share access with a partner or friends is awesome, too.
- Marshall shared Lian-Li UNI Fans, a modular, daisy-chainable fan module for your custom PC build.
