    Pretty underwhelming for "3 years". Don't get me wrong, Craft is great, but there's lots of bad UX to fix. It would also be nice to have better form support and a REST API.

    Little late, but the docs for Craft are excellent, they have videos on many topics, and the developer docs are just as good. They also have their own stack exchange site, and slack.

    Things like Susy are exactly what I mean, it's a ratio grid. You can set any breakpoint you want and use any grid size you want.

    Generally you end up with a much nicer result at then end rather than relying on the fixed breakpoints that are just uninteresting, inflexible, and in my opinion an anti-pattern.

    Having defined breakpoints limits you to what you can do, and what might look the best. Having a true responsive website, elements should change independently of each other, at the breakpoint they need. There's no "this is mobile" breakpoint, it just works at any resolution from 320px to 4000px. Things like breakpoint grids that bootstrap uses are quick development tools, but I believe they are anti patterns. One should use not use css grids, but ratio grids. Have the grid change any any breakpoint you want, as long as it looks good the whole way.

    We started off good with responsive design, then people built frameworks and tried to make it simpler to work with. If that's your goal is quick building, then there's no issue in setting up 4 breakpoints and just hamming it out. But it's the wrong way for true responsive.

    I haven't read to much into the docs, but I do know about the tech and methodologies it's based on.

    This is definitely where frameworks need to go. A frameworks should be the structure, not the design. If I want a design ready made, I'll get a theme.

    I'm not sure of the laws in the US, but in Canada hate speech is a crime. However, I wouldn't call this hate speech, and I doubt that it is legally defined as such either.

    I skimmed through the article, but didn't a similar thing happen to Zach Holman at GitHub?
