A couple weeks ago we released a major UI redesign of New Relic's browser monitoring and front-end development features. This is a story about how the dev team approached the UX for one of those redesigned features: the Browser breakdown tab. Today, the browser breakdown tab looks like this:

Browser breakdowns weren't new to New Relic. For a few years, we've provided data on which browsers were active on a site, but until a few weeks ago that tab had looked like this:

It easily blends within a rails application. Provides a great UI experience with the use of AJAX to fetch events on-the-fly for each month and hooks for user-triggered events (like clicking or dragging an event) for an easy event editing functionality.

…Tarsnap is currently defined by what it doesn't have: no Windows client. No UI. Essentially no guidance about how to use it to successfully implement backups in your organization.

Tarsnap should instead focus on its strengths:

Tarsnap is for backing up servers, not for backing up personal machines. It is a pure B2B product. We'll keep prosumer entry points around mainly because I think Colin will go nuclear if I suggest otherwise, but we're going to start talking …

Customizing the UI

You'll notice that our UI differs a bit from the default Discourse UI (see meta.discourse.org ). We've integrated our own header bar, added some custom UI elements and adjusted the homepage view from the Latest view to the Categories view. Most of this is possible out of the box with Discourse. They've got a nifty admin panel that allows you to easily do things like choose the default homepage view, pick the colors for each of your categories …

…media, emails to users, Jason put together a few online events. He did most of the UI mockups, and often we would tag-team design or collaborate on a whiteboard. I wrote some code, adding specific features or fixing bugs, but spent more time writing words and talking to people than coding. The goal was really culture change, not simply producing a piece of software. We wanted this to be a project that would live on after we left, and it was a Smithsonian goal as well. We hoped that they …

You'll want to include enough information that someone could build out a site or more. Your style guide should contain the some of the following:

…from the controllers can do the job. Now your original app becomes only the UI. A " UI application", "frontend application" or just "one of the applications using your API/gem". As a matter of fact the code that is now left in app/* means nothing outside of Rails app. Think about it. Also, what stands after run in your config.ru file? Rails:: Application . It's your own flavor of it (you inherit from it) but it's still a Rails:: Application…
