ERb is simple enough for
someone who is coming from HTML/CSS/PHP land, but I don’t
want to drop yet another new syntax on a designer.
Regular CSS with ERb is pretty much ideal for my needs.
I think I missed the original question but would have to agree here.
Although I suspect this is probably true for other designers, just
speaking for myself, working with CSS and remembering all the hacks and
tricks is hard enough without having to learn Yet Another Syntax.
Free-lancers like myself work with all kinds of developers using
different platforms and having to learn a special syntax just for some
RoR projects but not every RoR project… well, that’s cool and I’d be
open to doing that. But, I’d rather spend my time and more importantly
perhaps, I’d rather spend your or your client’s money on doing design
work and not learning RCSS or what-have-you.
Just trying to be pragmatic about all this…
Additionally, a designer can organize their CSS files and rules so that
something like RCSS is largely not needed. Doug Bowman over at
stopdesign.com has some interesting techniques as some other CSS-gurus
