A Call For Web Developers To Deprecate Their CSS
Jenn Schiffer

I completely understand where you’re coming from, as maintaining different parts of the application (logic, style,etc) in different languages is cumbersome. But I can see how using node can get very messy over time. In real-world applications containing hundreds of elements and pages and modules this can get very ugly.

The power of breaking things in different languages is that they are easy to maintain. It doesn’t make any sense to write style in the same way you write logic. While CSS is yet another language is quite readable. And your example is kind of a bluff as you could write:

#gulp { color : #0000ff; padding : 10px; }

and have only ONE line with the same length as each of your node lines.

The way I see development is how I see communication, when communicating with people you use different languages (verbal, gestures), they are different but they complement each other.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
