I miss Brunch
Matt

Feb 04 2016 03:01
Yeah.
I like it. It has its things that bug me. Especially how we use it at TS.
Jacob Wright

what things?
teach me what to avoid
Matt

Mostly depency issues.

I think I’d like to ditch browserify
Esp if we can still use stuff from node_modules in brunch.
Matt

So like we've got a pretty thick stack with css, js, htm, and less brunch compilers plus the additional things like uglify and lint

I don’t like that our CSS is being compiled into JS and scripted into the browser.
Matt

And I've been burned a few times from dependency updates.
Jacob Wright
@jacwright
Feb 04 2016 03:05
is this regular stuff or brunch-specific?
ah, dependency updates like brunch-* module updates?
Matt
@matthopson
Feb 04 2016 03:06
Even one time in brunch itself when some CL stuff was updated and broke our deploys completely. It was pushed without versioning. I ended up submitting a patch for it to brunch
Yeah.

browserify is more mature in that regard I believe.
but brunch is so fast and single-service
Matt
@matthopson
Feb 04 2016 03:08
So I'm really careful about updating. For instance latest brunch requires node 2. The config file is different and I had a hard time seeing where they announced that little gotcha

how’s the test story for Brunch?
Matt
@matthopson
Feb 04 2016 03:08
But other than that stuff. I super love brunch.
Not sure.
Pretty sure I subbed a test with my fix. I believe it is required with PRs
So while the approach I was trying for the wysiwyg was promising, there were problems with it that will prevent it being used.
And I really didn’t like excluding all IE
I’m thinking a simple wysiwyg (or maybe established like tinymce/ckeditor) will be sufficient for our needs right now.
Matt
@matthopson

I'm personally not a fan of tinymce

whatever the solution we will bend it to our will. CKEditor can be built with just the plugins you need, which is appealing.
Matt

Feb 04 2016 03:15
I feel like I recently found a pretty nice js editor
Jacob Wright
@jacwright
Feb 04 2016 03:15
I don’t want any of their toolbars.
just the core engines
Also I totally misunderstood your question about testing. I thought you meant brunchs haha

:)
Testing with a brunch-based build
Matt
@matthopson
Feb 04 2016 03:18
This is something we're investing some time into now at TS.
Trying being a weak point for me, I'm excited about it
*testing (getting reacquainted with the iPhone keyboard)
