    if you want to try out a framework
    I recommend picking up meteor

    xD I need to do it from scratch to learn. I have recent info (like posted within the last week recent).
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    that's always a good option, but I tend to find that gulp code is very hard to debug and put all the pieces together (that's just me though), so it's the one thing that I go out of my to look for snippets to copy
    here is a client only project using meteor https://github.com/davidjcastner/swatch-gen
    its' not complete shows the basic setup, if you have questions with meteor feal free to ask me, I would consider myself an expert in meteor at this point
    another thing I recommend trying out is CI/Continuous Development. Or Behavior Driven Development (test suites)
    Those are EXTREMELY valuable to learn, but also a huge undertaking

    Can the guts of a website created in meteor be easily transferred into the three basic files Codepen needs or does it end up created dependencies? I need to stay in the realm of things that can quickly go into codepen.
    I feel like meteor, CI and such will be more beneficial for projects outside of the FCC CodePen ones (I want to keep the code fully in CodePen so I can use it to help future MontCoders etc and not obfuscate it).

    There is an npm package, meteor-build-client, that complies the client side (front-end) into an html file, css file, and js file (along with any public files: ie -> images, icons etc..) allowing it to be uploaded to any hosting site. You could copy the contents into codepen (it wouldn't be readable/editable as it is minified)
    Yes all the I mentioned would be useful for projects outside of codepen. For a tool to learn on a new FCC project, I recommend picking up a css preprocessor. I favor scss but that's my opinion. You should do some of your own research on the differences between the preprocessors and what's currently trending.

    also: just submitted my neighborhood maps app for the 4th time xD
    I actually think it will pass this time though! w0000

    @Lilyheart
    good luck!

    @davidjcastner
    @SimplyPhy let me know how you like it, I haven't tried jasmine yet
    Eric Phy
    @SimplyPhy
    Will do
    Also: those bastards didn't accept my app again. Said it was too cool; they want me to shit it up a bit. Odd
    Aka: make my filter function do half of what it currently does.
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    wait who told you that they wouldn't accept it because it's too good?

    I'm kinda afk today, @lancelot323 is over and we are doin' kitchen things. (makin' beef jerky atm.. well cutting the meat and prepping the marinade. I'll start the jerkifying process tomorrow).

    Ha they didn’t actually say it was too good, I’m just making fun of them. The project specs call you to implement a filter that takes text and searches your location list for matches. I made it so it takes text, finds that text on the map, and accepts a radius input to allow for distance based filtering as well
    so yeah, they’re right, i just thought my way was cooler :D
    (and harder to do)

    @VictorHall
    I figured it out @Lilyheart thanks

    I was too productive this morning and now I'm bored at work, any suggestions?
    David Castner
    @davidjcastner
    @Lilyheart https://atom.io/packages/copy-paste <- could be very useful
    I'm assuming you already have this one: https://atom.io/packages/pigments
    Lily Romano
    @Lilyheart
    I does! Adam is over visiting so I'll check those out later. Pigments is awesome tho. Git plus has some merge and diff stuff but I don't use much as I do a lot on the cli so I cant speak to them.
