It's been a long time since my last update and I wanted to take some time to share some major updates to Halogy.
We have been incredibly busy with re-working the entire codebase of Halogy and overhauling the user interface to meet the demands and needs of our modern users. Over the next few weeks I am going to be sharing some of the features we have added and where we are going with Halogy.
Today I am happy to showcase our new user interface for the admin panel of Halogy.
Halogy Color Palette
Halogy was created to be a simple and easy to use CMS. We wanted to capture that in the colors that we use across the platform. The colors represent the lightness and simplicity of the new Halogy
Developed with Sass
Don't like the new colors? Want control over your colors to match your brand? No problem! We've re-built the core of Halogy to utilize Sass, which will give you the amazing power to update all the admin colors with only changing a few lines of code.
We've brought a touch of simplicity to the all-new Halogy core. Halogy represents a change of focus, our focus is 100% on usability.
The navigation has been simplified and given prominence at the top of the browser. It is a simple dropdown UI that is easy for your users to find what they are looking for.
A Focus on Data
We want Halogy to provide you and your clients amazing levels of data. On the dashboard we've added some data cards to help create a better visualization of what is happening on your site.
The dashboard is the first thing you or a client sees when the login to their site. We re-worked the dashboard view to incorporate a few new features, but at the same time not making it feel too unfamiliar.
Want to get on this new design early? We are going to be launching a hosted beta version of Halogy 2 in the next few weeks. If you are interested you can email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I would be happy to get you access!
I am proud of the direction we are headed and I can't wait to get this CMS update into your hands!
