Does anybody else think the UI could use a lot of work? I feel like I'm going back in time to JIRA dashboards.
James Ivings@jivings · Co-founder, ReleasePage
@joshuapinter I agree. I find it clunky and difficult to navigate.
Lee Fuhr@cozysd · Founder & Creative Director, Cozy
@joshuapinter Yup. Made me close the tab.

I like the team behind this, but the intro video goes on a bit long (I lost focus around :30) and the visual design... is hard to get behind, especially after becoming used to using more [personally] attractive and polished software like Asana and Slack. I'm curious how this aesthetic was arrived at?

@chrismessina C'mon Chris, you can manage a 2 min video! :) Do you mean the site or product design? The latter is an evolution from the underlying FogBugz engine it runs on. There's more detail about that here:

@_gw honestly, I couldn't! Maybe the details were a little dry or maybe I've watched a lot of these videos specifically for this kind of software and was interested to hear less about features and more about your team's insights and ideas about how people should work/collaborate be productive... and as a result, this tool grew out of that. Instead it felt like a feature onboarding and I just couldn't maintain my focus! Thanks for that post — that's useful. I specifically just mean the visual design — colors, fonts, borders, etc. It looks kind of like the previous version of Gmail or Google Calendar... it's possible that this style is more developer friendly and just doesn't suit my personal taste, and of course that's totally fine...!
Nicolas GreniéHunter@picsoung · Developer Evangelist,
Manuscript is the latest product from Fog Creek Software (Fogbugz, StackOverflow, Trello, Glitch) They took all their learnings from 17+ years of building collaborative software to build Manuscript. It perfectly integrates with your existing tools like Github, Slack, Trello, and it's extensible through API and Glitch integrations. Read Anil's (CEO) vision: Looks very promising :)
Gareth WilsonMaker@_gw · Marketing at Fog Creek Software
@picsoung Thanks for the hunt, Nicolas. We're looking forward to hearing what people think.
Tarun GangwaniHiring@tarungangwani · Product,
You can tell that this product was designed with how modern product teams work -- collaboratively with fluidity. There will be many cues taken from this product by other coding tools, but the execution and packaging can only really be done by the Fog Creek team.
Gareth WilsonMaker@_gw · Marketing at Fog Creek Software
@tarungangwani Thanks for the kind words, Tarun!

Ahh, a Trello competitor! I like the playful, Glitch-like branding.
Anil DashMaker@anildash · Cofounder, ThinkUp
@rrhoover Nah, not a Trello competitor at all (though I'd say probably a _JIra_ competitor?) — we integrate with Trello and think a lot of teams that are outgrowing Trello's simplicity will probably want to connect it to Manuscript.

@rrhoover @anildash Atlassian bought Trello and integrated it into Bitbucket. Now it feels like Fog Creek started from scratch here to build a better Bitbucket. :P
