      I feel like I'm missing something. When would this tool be used? Who is it for?

        When I was at Viget, we used it to give non-technical editors the ability to assemble rich, responsive layouts within a CMS, based on a set of predefined components. It's a structured approach to building layouts on-the-fly that avoids the inevitable shitstorm caused by editors pasting random HTML into the body well of a WYSIWYG.

        If I remember correctly, this page is an example of one created using Col Kurtz.

        The component was inspired by Craft's Matrix feature as well as MxM's similar component, Sir Trevor.
