    That's what I was hoping for :)

    Awesome, I'll be sure to follow along. We're building a suite of enterprise digital products. So screens like dashboards, list views, tables, forms, accounts, etc.

    This looks great, really awesome concept, could totally use something like this. My only beef is this really seems ideal for marketing, ecommerce and portfolio sites. Do you plan on adding different page covers or the ability to upload custom page covers?

    Edit: congrats on the launch, design looks superb!

    I stopped reading because the type was too thin...

    +1 as well, although...I had an experience where I got a referb and it had issues with the graphics card. Apple kept wanting to replace parts in it and after the third part replacement it still wasn't fixed. I was pretty upset bc I had been without a computer for two weeks. I take the computer home and boot it up, still obviously hadn't been fixed. Their techs put in new hardware and didn't even boot it up to see if it solved the problem before returning it to me. It was an older version than the one's they had on the shelf so technically I got upgraded to a newer machine through the manufacturer warranty. It was a real pain in the arse and I imagine it might have been much easier to replace if I had purchased applecare. That's my 2¢

    My guess it's affiliate marketing. So they get paid when users buy stuff via the app like music or movies. It's not technically advertising, but it's pretty much the same.

    edit: Affiliate marketing usually requires some pretty intense tracking...kinda BS they said their app has no algorithms...There's nothing wrong with collecting data about what your users do in your applications, what you do with that data is what's important.

    Figma seems like it could be promising. I adopted sketch fairly early and dealing with bugs just feels like a part of using sketch, but it's gotten a lot better. Not sure if I'm willing to be an early adopter for Figma...

    I'm confused on how you used both applications. I've always been a fan of how robust Axure is, but it's so damn clunky that I don't do much animation in it. Would be really interested in what you did here...

  • Posted to Creating New Portfolio Site... What static site generator should I use?, in reply to Taj Rahman , Aug 10, 2017

    Middleman is incredibly easy to spin up and gives you a TON out the gate. Coding your own like Ken M mentioned is fine, but if you want to leverage things like Sass, auto-prefixer, auto-reload, minifying, gzip...Middleman just gives you that. You can still hard code every file if you want to, still easier IMO then spinning up your own site from scratch.
