Google‘s been updating a ton of its services and products with new appears to be like just lately, together with the fashionable new Gmail UI that landed previous these days. However this 12 months’s spring cleansing is not only about refreshing issues for customers. Builders also are getting slightly of affection. Google has simply up to date its Android Developer web site with a brand new design.
The brand new web site homepage (above) in comparison to the previous design (underneath).
The brand new design is white, it is shiny, and it is loaded with white area. Total, it suits the refreshed “Subject matter Design 2” we now have noticed in Chrome and Gmail.
Long past is the previous nested, branching navigation at the left aspect of the web page. It is been changed with a unmarried five-category bar up best. As you navigate thru each and every fundamental class, further navigational choices seem as tabs in a sub-group bar underneath.
The trade is extra than simply homepage deep. Each navigable web page has those adjustments, as far as I will inform. And it seems that that it is not only a stylistic distinction, both. Some pages had been got rid of, moved, or restructured totally. Builders would possibly wish to double take a look at that their bookmarks nonetheless level the place they prefer, as some pages just like the previous “Increase” segment had been wholly changed (although redirects are in position)
New “Medical doctors” segment (left), vs previous “Increase” segment (proper).
Some sections, just like the Pattern code navigator, are virtually totally unmodified within the new glance. But others, just like the Bundle Index, have the barest minimal of adjustments to suit with the up to date aesthetic. YMMV in the case of person pages.
As far as I will inform, not anything is lacking. At maximum, issues had been restructured or moved. Once more, fortunately Google does appear to have redirects in position for adjustments. I am not a developer, although, and there are a ton of person pages. If there are any explicit portions of the documentation supplied at the Android Builders web site which you depend upon, it’s almost certainly a good suggestion to test that they are nonetheless there in some shape you’ll be able to acknowledge.
