I've seen some questions on specific UX designs best practices, like for the mobile apps (Android), but are there best practices for UX for the new Web 2.0 interactive web applications, like for RIA?
The reason I ask is I've done a lot of work with the AJAX toolkits: GWT, YUI, jQuery, but I've always had explicit requirements for the GUI. Now I'm being faced with creating prototypes and I'm having to think about the layouts and user interactions using component widgets with regards to UX.
I just found this from a website that is based on the Designing Web Interfaces book: 6 simple design principles underpin 70+ patterns and best practices for creating rich internet applications.
- Make it Direct
- Keep It Lightweight
- Stay on the Page
- Provide an Invitation
- Use Transitions
- React Immediately
This is more of what I was attempting to ask for, but I didn't know about that info when I first asked. I didn't want to end up answering my own question. I'm wondering if there are more guidelines/examples available.
