Time for a quick follow-up on my post on “Lightweight development“. So far, it’s worked great. Some conclusions, in no particular order:
- GitHub is great
- BitBucket is awesome too. I use it for some of my closed-source projects at the moment.
- Git-tooling for windows is ok, even more devs should give it a shot
- I didn’t like AngularJS because it felt to restrictive and complicated.
- KnockoutJS is still my favorite lib for client-side databinding
There are so many libraries and frameworks in the open source ecosystem. Don’t waste too much time finding “the perfect fit”. Just pick something that feels natural and helps you to get stuff done.
