Now that Pimatic has grown quite big, I think it would be great if someone with adequate knowledge of the GUI of pimatic could take this into consideration.
Of course there are plenty of possible UI designs that could be used, but I think Google’s design is a good all-around place to start. If I find time, I might try make some layouts.
I have made an external UI for pimatic, which is kind of static, so all changes (device names etc), need to be made twice…
Here’s an example of Google design in home automation (funny how similar these projects are): https://github.com/balloob/home-assistant
And here’s some info of Material Design: https://www.google.com/design/spec/material-design/introduction.html
The best part of this design is (and some others like Bootstrap) that it looks and performs well under all screens (usability). I think the current Pimatic is too “small” to be used fluently on a wall mounted tablet, for example.
I am not bashing the old design, by no means, I think jQuery mobile is a great place to start at. I just think it may be a good time to get this design to 2015
