In the past decade, front end development has changed a lot. In the old days, you would hand-roll, hack, test. It was a labor-intensive coding project. Lately, a suite of tools has emerged that promise many benefits to the developer workflow including grunt, foundation, sass, pre-processors, emmet, docker, composer, bower…
The tools are fine in their own right, but the problem with them is that they aren’t really durable. Using woodworking as an analogy, the tools last longer than the products that you build.
I was recently visiting a site for a foundation outline theme that seemed promising and found its discontinuation sidenote.
And I quote:
It’s been quite the journey and we learned a lot maintaining the required+ Foundation theme and it’s assets. We are grateful for all the people helping and using required+ Foundation as their WordPress base theme. Instead of releasing a version that we don’t use internally, we finally decided to discontinue required+ Foundation. This decision wasn’t easy and we tried to free some time for the project, but had to realise that it’s best to discontinue the project instead of letting you wait in limbo any longer.
Thanks again for the support and understanding
