I definitely need for more info on CSS Frameworks. It would be an interesting topic and build on your presentation in the second meeting.

Oh, I have no opinion on the subject of Blueprint vs. 960.gs. They're equally good for the same task. Slightly different, but not different enough to make one "better" in any dramatic way. 

 

Chris was describing building a tool on top of Thematic (which happens to use 960.gs) that makes the design of Thematic child themes a kind of WYSIWYG process (if I understood him correctly). 

 

Not really any vs. involved in this discussion, as far as I can tell. :-)

Chris – A side-by-side demo might be interesting for the October meeting. We can come up with a single set of requirements,  then watch as you come up with a solution using Thematic  and Jason demos the Blueprint solution. The point is not whether one is better, just a broader introduction to the topic.

 

Thoughts?

Jim

Interesting, the idea is kind of a WYSIWYG design tool based on Thematic. It's a good concept, but might be a bit of work to implement. 

 

I'll install Thematic, dig under the covers and give it a little more thought. 

 

There is some precedent for WYSIWYG grid editing tools. Here's one I'm fond of for Blueprint: http://toki-woki.net/p/Boks/

 

One thing that this idea has in common with the wish list at the end of the presentation from Philippe is the notion of custom admin forms. Customizing admin screens is something I intend to dig deeper into.

I posted this thread to the discussion board. I do not think that it gets broadcasted to the group when this happens.

If you are a developer, or are interested in how to make a client website development process very smooth, then this might be of interest to you.
