Be nice. Or else.
Relevant and worth rewatching every single time. ❤️
All points, except not owning your files, are pretty nonsense. I get that everybody likes to pay as little as possible, but building a high qualty software takes a ridiculous amount of effort and money.
I would rather know that the product I use stands on a strong ground, rather than saving few hunderd bucks and have the company go out of business because of an unsustainable business model.
I've often benefited from getting inspired by various unsolicited redesigns. I see them as stylistic exercises, not real UX designs. Why get so worked up over it?
Is there any reason this theme couldn't have been just a single html file?
It doesn't seem like the theme utilizes any of Craft's features. Why even bother building it on Craft CMS?
I love Kirby and the theme looks great, but hiding a two link navigation behind a hamburger seems like a bad UI decision.
Congrats on the launch! As I mentioned to Bjoern - loving the attention to small details like custom generated OG images. Looking forward to what evolves from this.
Looking great, can't wait for the launch!
Hey Drew, your relentless building has been an inspiration to me.
You've no doubt experienced first hand the difference between building an app and building a business. As makers of things, we have a natural tendency towards building whatever interests us at the moment, but we don't always have it in us to ask ourselves if the idea solves an actual pain point or if the product has a demand on the market.
Do you go through any process of figuring out if an idea solves an actual problem and it has potential for growth, or do you just thrive on passion for building things and see what has legs once it's out in the wild?
Cheers and best of luck with Plasso!
There have been repo's before but I like that they decided to release it officially. Good to be able to get the updates for fonts with just one pull.
Got some real Mixpanel vibes from the first impression, but the general look and feel is good.
Be nice. Or else.
