- Atoms are the smallest, building block material in Design SystemDesign System
Design System is a collection of reusable Components, build using Atomic and Sub-atomic Design Tokens particles that follow the guideline, behave consistently, and together work as the building block of the product.
A design system is not a pattern library or a sticker sheet. Atoms being consistent or similar in a design system won't make the final result compatible. For that, it requires a clear documented guideline on behavior and usage patterns. Usage patterns, organisms and templates mak..., that can’t be broken down any further without breaking the functionality.
- In ZettelkastenZettelkasten
Zettelkasten (Slipbox) recommends creating independent, Atomic notes so that we can connect it with other ideas and build new ideas. It creates a graph structure. Topic sub-topic format of note taking looks easier, but Usable doesn't always result in usefulness.
Start with Fleeting notes, temporary reminders of ideas - terms, jargons, examples - like kindle highlights.
Literature notes are one idea, Atomic, written in own words, explained and written to provide context, even after years... method, it recommends building atomic content (single concept, independent, that can grow later)
- In database systems ACID (Atomicity, Consistency, Isolation, Durability) talks about the same. Here, atomic transaction reference to indivisible and irreducible operation.
#🌱def / SystemSystem
A system is a set of things—people, cells, molecules, or whatever—interconnected in such a way that they produce their own pattern of behavior over time.
A system is more than the sum of its parts. It may exhibit adaptive, dynamic, goal-seeking, self-preserving, and sometimes evolutionary behavior.
