I thought I'd share my current design

touch-bar

#1

By making some custom icons, and using them for visual purposes only, you can create some quite cool effects.


• I made a quick menu for my work folders and my favourite internet tabs.
This is the main layout with interactive buttons.

• I thought it would be fun the use the red yellow and green window buttons to function as the ESC key.


A quick menu for easy access to my most used folders. I find this to be actually very useful in everyday work.


• A quick menu for easy access to my most used internet pages.


• I loved the weather widget in the aqua-touch preset so I used it as well, just slightly modifying it by adding humidity etc.

This is a work in progress but let me know what you guys think.

A question:
I am trying to figure out how to make a button that opens a Touch-bar group only when holding it down. so I can press the quick menu buttons, slide my finger to the folder I need, and open the folder on release.

Does anyone have any idea how to go about this?
Any help would be appreciated!

Looks cool!

On-touch opening & sliding is currently not possible with BTT.

Thank you!
I appreciate your fast reply.

It could be a cool addition for a future release, I think It would make quick menus on a touch bar actually useful. Clicking just once instead of two times make the workflow a lot smoother and more user-friendly!

Great designs! Really into them!

Are there extra triggers in between to create the flowing effect?

Thanks!
I just made some icons in illustrator and added extra buttons without functions and used them to fill up the space between the buttons. :wink:
