Optimizing your Figma prototype before importing it into Hubble can help ensure a smoother and more efficient testing experience. Here are some steps you can consider taking to optimize your Figma prototype:
1. Use frames
It's important to understand that Hubble is designed with certain assumptions about the structure of Figma prototypes.
Here are a few key points to consider regarding this assumption:
Top-Level Frames: Hubble expects your screens to be organized as top-level frames within your Figma file. This structure helps facilitate the navigation and testing of individual screens within Hubble's platform.
Frames vs. Components: While Figma components are powerful for creating reusable elements, Hubble's assumption that screens are top-level frames means that using components as screens without being housed within frames might not translate effectively in Hubble's testing environment.
Processing Issues: If your screens are not structured as top-level frames, it might result in processing issues or unexpected behaviors when importing your prototype into Hubble and creating expected paths for each tasks. This could impact the overall testing experience and the accuracy of your testing results.
2. Prioritize Key Interactions
Review your frames and interactions and eliminate any unnecessary elements or complexity. Focus on the most critical interactions that align with your testing objectives, and consider simplifying or removing less important interactions. Too many interactions can impact performance issue.
3. Reduce Image Sizes
If your prototype contains images, make sure to compress them and reduce their file sizes without compromising too much on quality. Smaller image sizes result in faster loading times for your Figma prototype in Hubble. This is crucial for providing a smooth and responsive experience to testers.
4. Optimize for Devices
If you know the target devices and screen sizes for your testing, optimize your Figma prototype to match those specifications. This can help ensure a more accurate representation within Hubble.
5. Preview and Test
Before importing the prototype in Hubble, use Figma's built-in preview mode to test the interactions and flow. This can help you catch issues and make necessary adjustments.
