UX/UI Updates

Smart Layout, Duplicate Transformations, and More 🌟: Pieces for Developers 1.13.5 and Pieces OS 4.2.2

Welcome to the latest release of Pieces for Developers! We're excited to introduce UX/UI improvements that teach you more about features, make it easier to see your snippet context at a glance, and improve the way you duplicate and transform a snippet.

Smart Layout

Introducing the new Smart Layout in the Pieces for Developers desktop app! For short snippets, Pieces will now show you more context without requiring you to toggle to the Information View.

Check out your At-A-Glance snippet metrics, Snippet Descriptions, and any Shareable links when you scroll through the Snippet Carousel.

The new Smart Layout in Pieces for Developers.

Snippets that are longer than 3 lines will not be truncated— the Smart Preview will show less context. You can always view the full context of a snippet in the Information View!

Transform A Duplicate Snippet

When you create a duplicate snippet, you can now choose to make an exact duplicate or transform it. You can use any of our AI Transformations to make your snippet more readable or performant, convert it to a different language, or create a boilerplate version.

The new Duplicate Snippet flow.

Power Tips

We’re launching Power Tips 🚀 You’ll now see helpful tips on how to take advantage of the dozens of features packed into Pieces for Developers.

Access all Power Tips via the Settings Menu. There, you can navigate between tips or opt into/out of automatic tips.
