Designing your Add-on

We've made it easy to powerfully integrate your ideas into Local. This section is all about how to craft the best experience around your ideas. Following our standard UI conventions will help ensure your Add-on feels less like an addition, and more like a true part of Local.

The most important step in the Add-on design process is taking the time to define exactly what your Add-on is going to do. What goal is it trying to achieve? What problem is it trying to solve? Who is it for? Once you know the answers to these questions, you can start creating your Add-on with confidence and clarity!

When designing your add-on, always focus on what a non-technical user would be thinking -- even if your target user is technical! The benefits of not needing to think about how to complete even a seemingly simple task are high and worth the up-front effort.
