When I want to use contentful is it better to work with the roots-contentful extension or direct with the sprout-static-cms? Where is the difference?

@oliver41 sprout-static-cms is very opinionated about your workflow - it assumes you'll be hosting your site on netlify. it also assumes you will be using jade, coffeescript and stylus. if those aren't your bag and you just want to use contentful, go for the roots-contentful. that being said, sprout-static-cms is built on sane best practices, so fwiw you can always start out with static-cms and tweak it to your liking. once you've found your own set of tooling you can publish it as a sprout template for other people to use as well :confetti_ball:

Ok, thx. I was surpised that the latest updates from the sprout-static-cms are longer ago than roots or roots-contentful

@jenius is working remotely at the moment as he travels the world so he has limited time/internet to always be on top of things - but in any case roots-contentful is just a dependency of sprout-static-cms, which in turn is just a template that roots can consume. you could totally just npm update in your project to get the dependencies of sprout-static-cms up-to-par with their more modern versions :)

well, i saw this but it should be possible to go with the gulp version and use the juice-bar if there is no other option. ? ! ?
