We're pleased to showcase our latest Hosted Project!
Brought to you by @NightKnight , the Warcraft III Reforged UI Designer is a tool made to create User Interface designs and systems for Warcraft Maps without code.
The creator was kind enough to share a few thoughts on the state of the project, its origins, and his vision of its future:

In your words describe what your tool does.

It uses graphical elements as in images and texts to represent the UI design graphically inside the app and then translates that representation into code that is put into the editor to produce the same design in-game.

What sets your tool apart from other methods of UI manipulation in Warcraft 3?
RUIDIcon.png
The only other UI manipulation method is through directly writing code to describe the UI. There isn't any way to design graphically, so a lot of testing is required. What the tool allows you is to see what you're creating at runtime and so greatly simplifies the designing process, saves so much effort and time, and most importantly, supports jass, Lua, and typescript, and it requires no code knowledge, meaning any user can use it to design UI without any pre-required experience. Before the tool, GUI users had no way to design UI without being forced to learn coding.

HiveIcon.png
What drove you to create the tool? What was your inspiration?
RUIDIcon.png
Designing UI with typing code instead of graphical designing is like telling a graphical designer to make an image by only describing it using text. It is slow, painful, and takes too much time. So I was expecting Reforged to bring its own UI Designer panel into the editor in some future update. That of course didn't happen, and after seeing that no one in the community was interested in making an app for it, and having learnt Typescript through wc3, I decided to start my first attempt at making an external application, and it was that.

HiveIcon.png
What's on your development roadmap? Short-term and long-term?
RUIDIcon.png
A lot of powerful features have already been made into the application like horizontal bars, duplication patterns, and dds/blp support. A lot much more powerful features are planned as well, like grid snapping, responsive patterns, relative positioning, proper element layering, more layout features, and game UI customization as well as complex frames like vertical bars.

Greetings everyone!

We hope you've all had a wonderful holiday and ready to start a new year! We have many things planned for Hive in 2022 and can't wait to start the next chapter in Hive's history.

However, as the site grows, so does the need for more staff members. Below you will find a list of vacant positions. We look forward to reading all applications!
  • HD model reviewer
  • Ported model/icon/skin reviewer
  • Code reviewer
  • Reforged map reviewer
  • Melee map reviewer
  • Skin reviewer
  • SD icon reviewer
Generally, new recruits are handpicked, but sometimes that is not enough to find candidates for the job. There are cases, however, when a user offers his or her services on their own, and we've decided that this is the way to present that outlet formally. To apply for a position, create a thread in staff contact.

Please make sure to include: 1.) The position you are applying for, 2.) Why you are applying for this position, 3.) What makes you qualified for this position (include examples and possible experience). We also encourage you explain anything else you would like to include in detail. Or, if you're unsure, you can ask more about the details of the position itself.

In addition to expertise in their fields, we expect our staff members to be as impartial and responsible as possible when performing their duties. The site rules apply to everyone and it is imperative that staff members lead by example.
