How to increase protoype efficiency on large scale app

Hi I like to ask if it's possible to script functions and constant or some way going around drop downs.


My project in JustinMind have around 30 pages with rich interactions. If i giving events on various elements i can easily loose track where changes happens. I resizing in one step each element in screen and that means i have 50 different events in one row.


Its possible to do that but after I do it I don't know which icon doing what. And if something stop working its almost impossible to find problem.


It's any way how to made working on big project more efficient?


I mean program is pretty slow when i have more dynamic panels inside and my target is around 300 different panels with events.


I can't use screens functionality for splitting project on parts because functions requires each part of app working independent on other but affecting displaying of others.

Hi there,


You can increase prototype efficiency by reducing the amount of data masters, high resolution images, or comments on the prototype.


Hope this helps.

I cant split application on more master than one or more screens.


Images i have used 1:1 scale. And no comments.


My main issue is about event functionality. If its possible to do that functionality inside script or its neccessary to do events in that gui? Quesstion about performance of app its not main problem. But can be nice to have some tutorial how to use JustInMind for large scale projects.

Hi there,


Splitting events is not possible - they must be added through the events panel.


In that case, we recommend splitting the prototype into two separate prototypes if possible. We're always working on finding ways to better application performance for larger prototypes, but a tutorial on how to handle larger prototypes would surely be helpful. Thank you for your suggestions.

I would like to sent you some composed screenshot from my prototype.


Maybe it will give better view on what i try to achieve.

Functionality of writing of a event is something planned of absolutely not ? I think it can dramaticaly made working quicker and more precise.


As you can see On the bottom of image. Thats my event manager. And for example i have problem with resizing of one element on screen in that event manager is not possible to hit right box which made that functionality without click on each box.

Hi there,


We do not recommend creating that many dynamic panels - that is most likely why your prototype is slow. If possible, can you consolidate some of them as well as the events in them?


Writing events is not planned right now - this would likely create issues with scripting, though we recognize that would help with prototyping speed.

Than i dont know if i can longer using a justinmind as a prototyping platform. After longes usage i start to have more cons nad workflow is not fully flexible as i expect.


Question is:


If Its possible to made very accurate prototype of justinmind application? For example if i want to copy whole program with all responds in program. Can I do that?


( I dont want to do that, its just question :) ).


Not functional just to represent design and usability. Inside one prototype. I mean left panel with switches and presets. Selecting part of screen. Because i cant imagine can be possible to test just one panel if affect other panels.


Also i am very interested how can be that workflow splited and adjusted or in which program you made a prototypes for JustInMind Application. I made a research about prototyping tools and justinmind is really great. Best competitors like origami, principle, framer, protoshare, webflow, solidfy, indigo, ux pin and also Axure are far away behind. Axure to compare to justinmind look like a old slow turtle. Also is interesting a new Adobe Comet. Which will sadly offer less functionality then justinmind but will works well with cloud.


Which can be right tool for prototyping interactions for responsive enterprise applications, nor small websites or mobile app? Which tool is best for designing adobe product like premier pro, photoshop nad also lot of mobile applications. If it necessary optimalization on more platforms and sizes ?

Hi there,


You probably could - though we don't recommend it.


Any prototyping platform will become slower when the prototype is very big and requires a lot of functionality. We do, however, believe that Justinmind is the best tool among prototypers.


It is necessary to optimize for any prototype if you would like performance to be as smooth as possible.
