CSS3 Menu Maker

Hi folks,

having actually a discussion about an external Desktop-App called CSS3 Menu Maker:

http://css3menu.com/index.html

By a first short look, there are two things I’d really appreciate to have them in our CSS-Menu Action (that’s the measure I take):

  1. Horizontal Submenus
  2. Multicolumn Submenus

and a lot of other quick to reach features that are sometimes harder (extended value-pairs…) to achieve within our built-in action.

What do you think about things like this?

Personally I could imagine, that the action once in a day could look and work like this external solution or would it be to much visionary?

Cheers

Thomas

Speaking as an Action-writer, one thing that I often struggle with is
the balance between interface complexity and features. Freeway’s
Actions API doesn’t let you create parameters on the fly, so adding
features means that you have to predict every possible option and
provide a “slot” for it in your program. Even if you then hide all the
additional options so the interface doesn’t overwhelm, you can still
end up with more complexity (look at the many layers of CSS Menus
already) that your users then need to discover and manipulate.

Personally, my vote always falls on the side of features. Complexity can be learned with good documentation and examples.

Implementing the menus from CSS3 Menus is easy enough to accomplish. Making use of the action that uploads additional files (search: upload extra resources @ actions forge) not generated by Freeway makes it even easier.

Perhaps a quick tutorial about how to mesh the two apps together would assist others such as myself who are code challenged and find the features of CSS3Menus.com too inviting to ignore.
