Hey my fellow Bubbler’s!
Before I begin, I want to give a quick shoutout to the Bubble.io Team for their new Responsive Engine. 100% worth the wait - thank you for your hard work!
So one of the things I’ve always wanted to see, was a dark mode version of the bubble.io ui. I’ve always been a fan of the darker ui designs, and I know a few of you are as well. I’ve tried the chrome plugin, developed by Zeroqode. And, as amazing and useful as that plugin is, the color of grey that was chosen for use with that plugin, was one that bugged me. Entirely a personal preference, but it caused me to look for other options.
I was hoping that bubble would launch a new ui (as many parts of it are a bit dated) with their new responsive engine, or at least a dark mode option, but from what I can tell it looks like that isn’t happening.
So finally I decided to just edit the website CSS myself, and save a local version that would be loaded automatically whenever I loaded the website. I thought you guys might like to see it. Took me about an hour or so to dive into their CSS styles and make the needed changes, so their ui felt a little more modern.
Would love to hear your thoughts! Maybe this could even spark some ideas for the bubble team, for a dark mode option for more picky users, such as myself.
Also, I’ve been using bubble for a few years, and even though I know several coding languages, I utilize bubble as often as I can. I think the concept behind it is the next stage of web and software development as it does a wonderful job of merging functionality with visualization of designs, and makes the process feel a lot more logical and cohesive. And beyond that, it makes the process a lot easier for new users to get started without becoming discouraged.
Just about anything you can think of that someone might want to do on bubble, I’ve done. Everything from tracking statistics, ips, useragents, and devices, to animated draggable elements that can be tossed across the screen, to a voice controlled virtual web assistant that uses google’s waveform tts api in combination with a custom Reverb plugin that I created to speak to the users. I’ve even got a python program running on a remote server that connects data from a website I run to my discord as well as several other sources.
Lastly, I’ve been considering doing a series of tutorials on various pages and functionalities that I’ve implemented within bubble, to help users better implement their ideas. Let me know if that would be something y’all would be interested in seeing!
