Even if most of the mixins aren't necessary anymore because of Autoprefixer, I still include Bourbon in all my projects, since the mixins won't get compiled anyway.
The most I use is px to rem function, and sometimes triangle and hide text mixins.
I've tried Neat, Bitters and Refills and it's not really for me, probably because I use Bootstrap a lot and it's easier for me to think in Bootstrap way in terms of grids and basic component styles.
What I love about this is the techniques used in this isn't really complicated and difficult to understand. Kinda shows you that you don't need to write complicated and sophisticated libraries/frameworks to come up with a way of doing new things.
I don't like it, but I don't dislike it either.
Sure it's very plain and looks like there's no CSS in the site, but it gets the job done.
At this point, Chris doesn't really need to be flashy in the site design because he already has the audience. People come to the site not because of the design, they come for the content.
I think in this iteration, Chris just wanted to try something new, and went for "less is more" approach.
You can argue that he can add some details and still make it clean and minimalist, but one thing is clear. The site is now really fast.
Thanks for the feedback!
I worked on this just for a couple of hours, but I just wanted to ship it fast and get some feedback.
I use the mt_rand function in PHP which will give you 0 to maximum integer number. Initially I don't limit the result. But after some thoughts, for now I want to limit the numbers to just 4 digits, so I can add some tidbits/trivia about some specific numbers. If I don't limit it to just 4 digits, the tidbits won't be obvious since no one would be able to see them.
The animations and transitions don't work on anything but Chrome because I haven't added vendor prefixes yet, haha. Will work on that soon.
The design is actually barebone Laravel 5 default page though, which I think is classy and elegant enough!, so I steal it!
Lots of things I have in mind, just to name a few: - API (so for some odd reasons you can use this site to generate a number for your apps) - More quips/trivias - Share the numbers (don't know what for) - Make a number your favorite - Stats (i'm gonna need a lot of data for this though so could be a while)
But we still have to use email for external communication with clients and Whatsapp for our life outside work.
So the argument becomes, "Why should I add another platform when I'm using emails and Whatsapp anyway?"
Whatsapp is used for private and more casual talks for internal teams (no client). And since everyone in a team is basically friends with everyone and have each other's Whatsapp, that's a logical choice actually.
Thanks for all the answers. Still, I've been trying to find the answer for the biggest roadblock to implement Slack to its fullest which is the reluctance for most people to add another platform to their daily life.
Emails are for external communications, sure, but since all employees are certain to use emails, then all the internal communications are done via emails too to make sure everyone gets and reads it.
Whatsapp is used for more private communications because of the same reason, everyone uses Whatsapp anyway.
I agree though, Slack/Hipchat/other solutions will only work with a supportive community. There must be interesting contents to make people engage in the platform, but we need people to engage in the platform to have interesting contents. It's a chicken and egg situation all over again, haha
Nice to hear about it.
By the way, just curious, how long were you working on this up until launch?
How do you find working with Laravel 5?
