Introducing huha.js: Analysing User Experience with Javascript

June 22, 2018

June 22, 2018 by Miguel Torres

We love building great products, but a product would be completely useless if it is not properly designed for the people who are meant to use it. This lack of efficiency impacts the user experience (UX) of the solution. But, how can we achieve a good UX when developing a product? Is there a way that we can measure user performance objectively?

By trying to answer these questions, we realised there aren’t any cheap and easy-to-use tools ready for any member of our team. So, since we have some experience in things like building software, we decided to develop our own tool.

We are glad to introduce huha.js, a Javascript framework that is intended to measure the usability and user experience in an automated way, considering the limitations of the model and best practices.

In this post, we would like to share how it was built, in order to get fast and detailed feedback on user experience and be able to provide support to a highly iterative agile development practice.

How we make User Research at Ebury

If you have ever worked with a team of UX Designers, I’m sure you have heard about the term Persona. A Persona is simply a semi-fictional character that stereotypes your user. It doesn’t sound that useful, does it? Indeed, personas are fairly irrelevant but we still need to talk about them because they are the perfect excuse to drive effective User Research.

At Ebury we use Personas not just to understand how our current users are, but also to create solutions for the potential customer. This is why we take advantage of the Persona modelling process, as it gives us a better understanding of our customers’ needs.

Designers always look for the best set of tools for their next project, but often the ones already in place can be used for their purpose – achieving different things with different goals in mind. As a designer, I try to use tools that fit the project needs as well as our longer-term workflow.

Let’s explore some of our favorite design tools at Ebury.

The design process: start right

June 1, 2016

June 1, 2016 by José Carlos Martínez

Starting a new design project is always a challenge. Even identifying what you have to do first can be difficult.

The design process is not always clear, normally because each project has its owns requirements, platforms, devices, deadlines, etc. Bearing that in mind, you can’t follow the same design process each time and sometimes you’ll have to modify your approach, adapting to your current project.
