Human UI vs UI+, your thoughts and experiences on which to use


I intend to extend my complex script to a UI with an large nb of variables divided over multiple sections. Both Human UI and UI+ seem like great solutions and will probably both get the job done. But before diving in, I’m curious to know what are your thoughts on which one to use, pros and cons. At a first glance, UI+ is actively developed while Human’s latest update dates back 3 years. Then again, the toolset of HumanUI seems more diverse and more frequently used in this community.

I actually have the same question. Have you found out anything yet?

No, haven’t got a change to start implementing … still on the todo list for coming months.
Please keep me update if by any change you will do some testing yourself in the coming days/weeks.

In my code I make use of some libraries currently not supported by ShapeDriver, though that one may also be a nice comparison to include

Thank you for your advice, I will definitely inform you if I found anything that can be useful
Good luck!

I am also interested in comparing these two (or any other tool for that matter, to create a nice separate front end for the script).

I used HumanUI a while back. I remember that I thought it made the script a bit messy with all the added components. However, since then I have started using Telepathy, which I think will be great for separating all that has to do with the UI from the actual script.

If I get around testing UI+ soon I will return with a comparison.

I recently tried both and finally decided to go with UI+.
I chose it because 3D viewer functions differently and somewhat easier to understand.
In UI+ you can change the display mode and add anything you want and showing geometry is simpler.
However, UI+ does lack some functions.
In HumanUI on the other hand, I didn’t find anything similar, but I love that the object in 3D Viewer is locked, and the background is a clean white.

All in all, both are well-made. Would be great if we were able to use both at the same time.
Hope to get more feedback from others here :grin:
