    That is what the Kactus CLI is doing, but is the Kactus app a hard requirement to make the workflow work? I’d much rather do everything from the command line and have watch scripts do the heavy lifting. Is that a feasible route?

    It looks like you’re not using the Alpha but the regular Yandex browser (which indeed is a Chrome clone). The Alpha looks like this (note the tabs at the bottom):

    I like the idea, but I agree that the execution is a usability hell.

    An interesting take on the browser interface. Too bad the current downloadable alpha isn’t nearly as clean as the concept presented in the video.

    Fair enough, perhaps it’s more accepted in the US (assuming you’re from there).

    The website says below the script:

    Does that sound like a debt collector to you?

    I have no experience with debt collectors, so to me it does in fact sound like one.

    I was going to say, that script is quite… assertive. Being asked to make a payment with someone you don't know over the phone would ring all phone scam alarm bells for me.

    Harvest all the way. We use it for our invoicing, estimates and time tracking.

    While I understand to appeal of this slimmed down interface it does beg the question: How is WordPress still a help in this case? If you don’t need this much of the basic offering of WordPress, why would you still use it? Wouldn’t it be a better and faster solution to simply select a different CMS that is better suited for this task?

    We’ve used WordPress as our default CMS because of it’s relatively easy to use admin interface and vast ecosystem, but for the category of websites with a section/story based layout we’re moving to Craft, which is much more flexible for the content editor from the start.

    Hi Nick, I love the site. Great idea and I like the subtle grungy background behind the header.

    A couple of things:

    • Why did you choose to put the menu icon in the top left and have the navigation slide in from the right? I expected the navigation to slide in from the left because of the placement of the icon so it was a bit of surprise when it slide in from the right.
    • On mobile, the menu icon also slides out of view to be replaced by an active looking menu icon on the other page. Feels a bit cheap.
    • In the navigation pane, all titles are invisible until you hover over an item. That makes scanning the articles next to impossible. All items look uniform, nothing attracts my attention. I don’t know what I’m looking at and I can’t decide which item to click next.
    • Call me old fashioned, but I miss a homepage of sorts. A place where you feature items that are new or noteworthy. A place where you guide me to what I should read next so I don’t have to think about it. I think it would help new visitors to find out what the site is all about.

    Keep it up!
