After a short break, we’re back with Hardcover Live #48. This one’s another building session where Adam and Ste will work on design for the new Stats and for updating the progress on a book.


Adam and Ste discuss their recent family time and vacations. They also discuss the challenges of balancing work and personal life. They review the design for updating progress on a book and consider different options for the user interface. They explore the idea of using incremental page numbers and discuss the possibility of autosaving progress. They also discuss the placement of the change edition button and the design for editing the page number. In this conversation, Adam and Ste discuss the implementation of a feature that allows users to select their book edition. They explore different options for displaying and selecting editions, including using a combo box or a popover. They also discuss the possibility of users adding new editions and how to handle covers for different editions. They touch on the idea of using the same components for updating progress and edition selection. They also briefly mention upcoming features related to book statistics and progress tracking.
