Rachel Andrew on adding bloat and more code in the very beginning of a project, since you might need it. Got to the post via Roger Johansson’s link titled Use only what you need, which I recommend.
I’m indeed interested in reading about new techniques and ways of setting up new web projects as smooth as possible, but as I’ve “grown older” I haven’t tried out every obscure boilerplate out there. They say Hell is other people’s code, and it’s indeed true with HTML and CSS. Those technologies are a huge part of what I do, and some frameworks and boilerplates feels awkward to use. It’s a different case with backend code libraries, which act like black boxes where you use to interface with something.
I actually don’t like Twitter’s Bootstrap at all
