npm, Gulp, Grunt, JSX, plugin after plugin, framework after framework. Lots has changed!

    Don't forget React & Redux, both are amazing and all the TDD frameworks ;)

    Such an exciting time to be a developer!

    You can forget about Grunt though, there's no need to start using that today.

    Ah yes, library after library, too - although that's nothing new! I'm starting with the workspace tools first. Most conclusions I've come across since late 2015 suggest npm scripts are the way to go - Grunt and Gulp are both unnecessary?

    Gulp is great depending on what you want to do. NPM scripts are good for basic tasks, Gulp gives you much more power when needed.
    It all depends what the project requirements are. My latest boilerplate in the status below uses Gulp and NPM scripts to pass flags to Gulp.

    Just to clarify this isn't an App, it's just a starting point for the kinds of projects I build. React, Sass, linting. Setting all of this up takes considerable time and headaches so I wanted to abstract that away.

    Yes, i understand. It's a huge work to set up this docs. I know nothing about testing, after i finished redux, i will take a close look on your docs and, if possible, ask questions.

    Don't see <interactive /> component in react console on site by the link. Now learning Redux. It's hard, really

    Actually I see why, it's because of minification, the names have been reduced to a single letter.

    Wes Bos redux course is free, and that is paid for via sponsorship, but his React course is paid. I reccomend you spend a little more time with React Fleur before you jump into Redux though, based on the thread you posted a week or two ago.

    Thank you, Robert, agree with you. I try understand how app working. Sometimes tutorial is easy, but when start working.. That's why i try spend time for both. But 2/3 of my time i need working with React and ES6, indeed.

    If you don't watch Silicon Valley then you should start, it's really good.

    They actually created the girls Github account and there's already pull requests for changing the spaces to tabs.

Food for thoughts: Would you say mobile first and desktop first concepts have both become obsolete?

    Oh, I think we're talking about different things. I meant your ui itcss example - it was an inspiration for me to start my own framework. Essentially aiming for unstyled architecture, a starter I can use for any project.

    I can see how something like this would work very well with React.

    When i was dealing with clients for furniture site they told me that they more often buy furniture from desktop computer, because it's complicated to see the small pics and read special content on smartphone. That's why i think that for commercial sites it's better to follow 'desktop first' rules. Also i want to ask: why devs try to create it's own grid rather then use tools like Borbon + BEM. It's already exist, easy to use and has lot's of great stuff like sticky footer, tabs etc?

    Fleur mobile first should not mean desktop users get a degraded experience. I created my own grid because all the others out there were inadequate. Now I use miine. Tools like bootstrap and bourbon etc are too opinionated in design, making an element sticky is incredibly trivial. We are developers if we struggle to do something as straightforward as that something is seriously wrong.
