The @noflo team recently had a little sprint in Berlin. Four days spent evolving the interaction layer for Noflo (flow based programming environment for design development).
Lovingly referred to internally as the "laser" concept—we couldn't think of anything better. Here is a peek at the current UI evolution.

This looks awesome! I'd love a demo teaser showing how you use this system and implement the creation in to something functional on the web.
This is looking nice. Could work for sitemapping as well.
@Adam Roberts Those are definitely coming soon. We can build real time demos now but are currently working on designing the environment out to make it usable.
@Rodrigo Grundig Thanks!
Well it kind of is a "code" map. Each block you see there houses reusable code that are connected together to build software. So you are then able to see the logic (flow) of your code and software.
Similar to smart objects in Ps :)
PS "Smart object" are probably the last comparison I'd have picked considered how dumb and foreign they are to any programming concepts :)
Flow/schematic view has always been my preferred solution for visualizing and working on complex processes as it forces you to understand things in a procedural perspective.
There's plenty of good examples of tools relying on this paradigm in the vfx & game industry.
I'm really curious to see this concept applied to js programming and will certainly watch noflo with interest... @Leigh Taylor looks really good so far :)
@thibaud You are right Smart Objects aren't the best example but I was considering the source and assuming the programming paradigms weren't as understood here on dribbble.
Thanks for the kind words.
@Leigh Taylor this looks amazing. Can't wait for a working demo. Is that working on an iPad?
@Joe Blau Thank you, we are going for a tablet first approach, as the most common entry point and expanding for desktop/mobile with complementary gestures, shortcuts and tools.
I'll post more as it develops ;)
