List View and Sub-folders for Widgets

Amlynn shared this idea 2 years ago
Under Consideration

It would be incredibly helpful for my team if we had the ability to set the widgets panel to a list view instead of a grid view. We have a pattern library of roughly 80 patterns and many of them have multiple variations which would put our library up over 200 widgets. Our designers know the patterns by name and don't necessarily need to view a thumbnail of it. I find it a bit more difficult to find something in grid view than in a list view.


Plus, our pattern names can sometimes get long when you are describing exactly which variation you are using.


For example:


Bank Information (International) - Canada Only


Email - Instruction & Confirmation & Feedback


Full Name - MI - Instruction - Suffix Dropdown


Because the grid view truncates the names of the widgets to the size of the thumbnail, it will be difficult for our designers to distinguish one variation from another.


Also, because many of the patterns have variations, it would be nice to group them under a category title.


For example:


Inputs > Address


Inputs > Bank Information


Navigation > Form Controls


etc...


Food for thought. Thanks!

Hi Amlynn,


Thank you for your suggestion. Although I don't know if this would be possible I will transfer this information to our development team so they can take into account your idea.


Best,
