Review of WireframeSketcher
I’m a big Eclipse supporter. It is the de facto leading Java development environment, though impartial statistics are difficult to find. If you are an Eclipse fan and want a well-integrated plugin to create screen mockups, look no farther than WireframeSketcher.
WireframeSketcher has a Sketching perspective and adds over 30 UI “components” in its palette:
You basically have two primary parts: a Screen and a Storyboard. A screen is as shown above. A storyboard is a sequence of screens:
You can then run a Presentation of your sequence in full-screen mode:
You can also save a screen to the clipboard or as a .png file.
- Great integration with Eclipse.
- Lots of UI parts to work with.
- Storyboard and image output.
- Very fast to create a mockup.
- Not much documentation (though Peter is working on more).
Net: If you need to create mockups and you use Eclipse, this is a no brainer – get WireframeSketcher!
