Gizmo UI/Component Library

Client: The University of Texas at Dallas #design #development #html5 #css3 #scss

A library of responsive components and interface elements for suite of unified applications.

I designed and built Gizmo, a responsive UI component framework for the back-end tools that WAT develops and operates for The University of Texas at Dallas. Gizmo uses BEM methodology and takes advantage of CSS Custom Properties and SCSS.

As a small team of four people, WAT is always looking for ways to reduce the overhead of managing our tools. We avoid things that would make our projects bigger, but many of our tools have different front ends, which increases technical debt and makes the user experience inconsistent across applications. Gizmo was developed to unify these front ends and speed up development while providing a consistent user experience.
