Hi, it's very hard to me to invest lot of time both in tryin to develop something useful in the look and feel field for us where no other is doing work, trying to explain and discuss all issues I find without get any traction. It's like to face a wall all the time.
Maybe I'm wrong with my proposals but other times my perception is that things are settled in a particular way and we don't want to change it since is working in the current state. But I think we always where thinking of change things as we evolve Royale. We're in a 0.9.2 release, we're not in 1.0, but the way we're managing all issues seems to me that we're fine with what we have now and we are freezing the API. In all the issues raised last days only CSS compiler errors are real bugs, since without that fixes royale can't output concrete CSS rules (I think those not require any discussion) The font injection is maybe another bug (don't know why a class in a theme is not "visible" by the final app), but can be workarounded with an html that setup the font for now. Things like classNames discussion are not critical (I know), it's just a matter to refine the API since I had problems each time I go that path, first with MDL and now with Jewel. Maybe I'm the only one since no other has tried what I'm trying to do: Creating Themes. In my opinion, give the users only a way to manage classNames vía string, is insufficient and cumbersome and deserves at a minimun some API methods since is an important point in how UI is stylized, and how controls and objects in html can be "extended" or diferenciated (Alex explained very well the importance of this in the typenames thread). So some API to ease that is for me very Wellcome since I'm doing that work, and will be more users doing that work. In this point, I don't think we should shield us in things like PAYG or if that is a bit less performant. To close and avoid having much discussion to not reach to some valuable point: I can try to go with what we have, but makes me feel not so good about the continuous rejection of my proposals. As well, you are saying that we should wait to what users demand...but I'm an user of the API, and my perception as a "zero user" seems to be not valuable. Since I don't get traction on this, I'll try to continue with what we have and report back 2018-03-13 9:24 GMT+01:00 Harbs <harbs.li...@gmail.com>: > +1. > > > On Mar 13, 2018, at 10:08 AM, Alex Harui <aha...@adobe.com.INVALID> > wrote: > > > > I am so sad and frustrated that we have spent so much time on managing a > > set of strings.
