So far, I haven’t actually had that much HTML to include, but hopefully that will change as my project takes shape and grows.
Now I just need to find something to do the same for SASS.
Unfortunately, we’re talking about web developers who don’t seem to understand basic principals like avoiding namespace pollution. I mean, how can you even have a conversation with someone with such a misconception of good practices?
Jeremy Ashkenas, the creator of CoffeeScript, Backbone, and Underscore also seems to have misconceptions about the purpose of AMD.
I was really hoping that someone with such a worthy track record would have seen the light by now. Luckily the require.js guy himself is pushing for AMD support in Underscore with a new pull request. Once that is pulled in, it looks like Backbone is next on the list.
Since the next version of jQuery will have AMD support, I imagine that the rest of the libraries will follow since they seem to look up to jQuery for best practices.
It’s good to see that someone has taken up the GitX mantle, since the original hasn’t been updated since September, 2009. There have been a bunch of forks, notably brotherbard‘s fork.
But this is the first time I’ve seen active development with actual releases. Nice to know I’m not relying on abandoned software.
