French Toast is our code name for Pancake's next-generation user interface.
Minimum Viable Product
We're going to get here by way of a minimum viable product, which uses the existing Pancake infrastructure to create a search-based browser in the cloud.
Check out Pancake/French_Toast/UX/Minimum_Viable_Product for the details.
See Pancake/Prototyping for rational. User testing sessions:
Notes from feature implementation discussions we've had. These are living, and therefore loose, specs. What we've outlined here are hypothesis on the best way to address user stories. They will probably evolve in response to prototyping.
- Layer Navigation: "I want to understand where in the app I am, and how to navigate within it".
- Search View: "Help me find x. I want the results to be easy to understand".
