I’ve been using Dropbox Paper recently, and it’s really fantastic UI/UX!
Before using Paper, I’d been left documentation in esa.io. It’s also nice UI, has a cute service character and really good Customer support!
But, finally, I’ve decided to move Paper from esa
Paper’s UX is much better than esa and I can’t find the demerit from Paper.
Failure of Docs/Folder structuring
During using esa, I made mistakes for layering the documentations and folders.
Too fast optimization made me frustrating and less motivated to write a document.
From my personal feeling, the title of a document can be broad and I’ll decide to split it after if it has too large size.
e.g.) “Xubuntu color schema settings”, “Xubuntus font settings” -> just one file “Xubuntu settings”
Having too many documents is not sutable for me and it’s not smart to split documents and folders too early time like programming.
In Paper, I changed the structuring style and it seems success at this moment.
Why private document?
I’m also thinking about publish documents and hide them.
During transition from esa to Paper, I found that most documents on the team could be published.
And the work of transition is really boring, then I decide to publish(not write a document on Paper) my future documents to Gist or this blog as much as I can.
Gist search feature is not so bad, although a bit difficult to look throuhg the list.
I really appreciate the esa team and thank you till now!
