Purpose

Goal

Front-end developers have sophisticated build pipelines that make them productive and help them build high-performance websites. It should be easy for them to use them with magnolia so that:

  • They can be quickly productive
  • They can create high-performance websites
  • They like magnolia
  • We can use this to generate marketing buzz on the intersection of frontend dev & CMS.

Proposal

Hooks for frontend build tool integration - with examples.

Front end dev typically do not want to learn freemarker to process css but would prefer to use their existing skill sets.

  • LESS
  • SASS
  • Grunt / Gulp
  • Browserify
  • Minification
  • Concatination
  • Coffeescript compilation

Implementation

Maybe this already exists?

I know people on the forum have found a way to use the Vaadin SASS parser for the front-end. But i dont think thats the ideal approach necessarily.

TBD.
