Any opinion on web frameworks for node? Express still king, or something better came along?
Particularly interested in async/await
So it needs to be promise based

I’d be interested to hear an answer to the same question, considering I’m still using PHP with Symfony and haven’t seen and Node.JS frameworks that bring the same level of standardization.
seen any*

I used to be really pumped on semantic ui until bootstrap 3 came out. Semantic doesn’t have multiple column settings for the grid yet right? (like col-md-# vs col-xs-# etc) @jlukic

The problem with Bootstrap is jQuery, imo.

it is pretty awesome... I use it a lot and it is a bit more semantic to the grid system and has a mobile first design pattern

If JS is your problem, might want to look into http://mitranim.com/stylific/
kind of a UI framework without JS (even for interactive stuff)

I only use the CSS of bootstrap
anyhow, this conversation should be had in a different room

JS isn’t my problem, otherwise I wouldn’t use Node. I just don’t like jQuery.
