We all know that Glitch is planning to release a paid plan and along with other sweet new features, but I would like to propose a few changes to the UI (and other stuff) of Glitch. These may or may not be there for the new updates Glitch are planning to roll out, but I hope to see them soon!
- Although an official #announcements was made about emailing Glitch at firstname.lastname@example.org for custom domain removals, etc, many users still ask for custom domain removals and suspended projects here in this forum. I think this can be eliminated by a small change in the UI, which can result in the user directly emailing email@example.com. Something like this:
We could have a feature to star Glitch projects, much like GitHub’s starring system.
The older projects view of Glitch was much better as it had many featured projects under several categories, which also kind of made the homepage look more ‘alive’. I prefer the old view rather than the current homepage, which looks rather dull, with only 3-4 featured projects at a time.
All projects should have the option to add tags, which can easily sort projects into different catgories and users can query according to their tags.
An ‘Explore’ page would be nice where different projects by different users are shown. The projects can be filtered (according to stars, most popular, etc.) and the content of the ‘Explore’ can change according to the user’s preferences.
The new Account settings page should have more options and preferences. In fact, I think, that is where the option to change your name, username, and description.
All this being said, I think Glitch should be more notification based.
These ideas might be huge, but I hope to see them soon!
Have a good day!
