First of all, I really love the concept of Slices and SliceMachine.
I already use SliceMachine in some of my client projects and I noticed some things that slow down my process since the upgrade to the new version (Slice Machine UI).
It would be nice if I wouldn't have to run 3 terminals, while working on my project.
Why cant I chose all the options for some fields in SliceMachine UI just as I could in Prismic. I noticed this using the Rich Text Field and the Image Field:
Image Field: In Prismic I can define sizes only by one parameter, letting the other one stay on auto. This isn't a valid input in SliceMachine. (My workaround by directly edit the image size in the model.json)
Rich Text Field: In SliceMachine I cannot allow links and other styling options to a rich text file. I had to add them manually to model.json.
I would also like to see the Grid/List option to be an option in SliceMachine UI.
Is there a way to rename or delete slices, that already have been pushed to Prismic (using the CLI)? I manually renamed one of my slices in the code. After pushing to Prismic it showed up as a separate slice instead of renaming the old one.
I think there should be an option for using Icons instead of taking a Screenshot of the mock data. (Or allowing us to use custom preview Images) For some Layouts, the mock data just doesn't look very nice. My workaround: Replacing the preview.png by a custom image, edit the model.json and then push it to Prismic.
For some projects I don't really need SliceMachine UI since I already work on the final Prismic repository. Is it possible to only use the Slice-Zone Component without SliceMachine UI?
Thanks for developing such a powerful tool. I would be very happy if some of my suggestions for improvement would be incorporated into a new version of SliceMachine.
