Extensibility UX guidelines have arrived. Why did we create these guidelines? We wanted to help developers — like you — design extensions that closely align with the SketchUp brand and provide an improved, unified experience for an end-user. These guidelines aren’t intended to create more work on your end, but to help speed up your development process — and make it easier!
Once you give the guidelines a read, you may choose to ignore some of the tips that aren’t relevant to you — and that’s okay! For example, in a technically complex extension, you may want to use language slightly different than that of the SketchUp brand. Before you choose to go a certain direction, familiarize yourself with the guidelines and then ask yourself “why” if you choose to ignore them.
As always, reach out if you have any questions.
