Show HN: Jigsaw Composer – mockup environment in a chrome extension

Hey internet people,

over the last few months I've been working on a project that's been nagging at my brain and I'd like to share the results with you and hopefully get your thoughts.

A few years ago I had a theory that we could avoid unnecessary redesigns & improve the quality of dynamic interfaces with a tool that can plan - create mockups/prototypes - on top of existing sites.

Now, a very early prototype of this tool exists, a chrome extension tentatively called "Jigsaw Composer", with Jigsaw we can:

- Manipulate any site component

- Add & manipulate external components & icons from popular libraries (bootsrap/material/semantic ui)

- Add & manipulate html components from other websites

- Add & manipulate images uploaded from a pc or other sites

Manipulate = everything you'd expect from a mock-up tool

The extension is chrome storage based (no data gathering from me) & free


hope to hear your thoughts and feelings :)
