the complexity paradox
Well, there I said it. Complex.
With this comment we go full circle back to where we started. Talking about trying to learn ember.
Don’t get me wrong, I really like broccoli and desire from the bottom of my heart to see it thrive and succeed. So call me caremad.
too many moving parts
We all know the history - sometimes you just do what you need for catering to other project’s needs, then realizes you’ve did something with an amazing potential and spins it off as a standalone thing. That’s awesome!
- coffeescript support
- es6 modules
- templates that aren’t pre-compiled, just exposed as es6 modules
appkit(wtf is this?)
Well, you aren’t forced to use all this, but heck, this is the sample app. It’s pretty easy to get lost on all the tools/nomenclature.
Aren’t we scaring out potential new users by introducing too many moving parts?
I don’t have the answers, my experience tells me that being opinionated is good. Heck, I’m opinionated as shit and I feel this is just too much.
Same with ember. Sure the ideas are awesome, and I can see it will gain traction, but do we really need that steep learning curve? There’s no resort for it beyond enduring the pain until it wanders away?
Can we start thinking on treating broccoli as a first-class citizen, or it’s too early yet? I hate to see it being promoted as that build tool that ember-cli is built upon.
Am I crazy? I’d love to hear from you!
