I'm studying interaction design (via a Swedish uni) so am having some difficulty finding English terms for different interactions and interface designs. Terms like lightbox popup and modal overlays.
A couple of days ago I found myself miserably failing in describing a feature on Amazon (gone now, must have been an A/B test) where, after you add an item to the basket, a window slides out from the right, displaying what's in the basket, and with a button navigating to the checkout page.
*What would I call a function like this?
Q. What I really want to ask though, is if you know of any library where I can find a list of terms and explanations for different types of interactions like this.
