Mint: First Impression
Tuesday, September 6, 2005 at 10:48 pm | Comments off
My first impression of Shaun Inman's Mint is a good one. It's got a very nice design (not at all surprising, coming from Shaun) and is well executed. It's by far one of the best executed uses of Ajax I've ever seen, and this is one scenario where using Ajax just makes so much sense. I'd say the Ajax is what impressed me most - how incredibly nicely executed it is. There are times when Ajax is the perfect tool for the job, and this is one of them. It really is a nice jump up from Shortstat, and in my opinion, worth the $30 bucks.
It'll be interesting to learn a bit more about the Pepper API when I get a chance. Some documentation is definitely needed, but I'm excited about the extensibility this provides, and look forward to developers starting to write useful plugins for Mint. I can think of a few that, if I have time, I'd love to write.
Overall, I highly recommend it. I'll leave you with a screenshot of Mint being sexy, displaying my browser stats for me.
Now go get your mint on!
