yes super busy, that's why we are hiring :) if you know of any engineers in New York looking for a job, send em our way! Sorry that your chats have gone unanswered, I will see with the team to get back with you.
Thanks ! Twill is fantastic but it's a lot of work getting a site setup with it... its not yet a rapid process at all and I think a part of that right now is the lack of support that Area17 can provide. I totally understand you just dont have much time... i know this issue myself with something I created.
I guess there is this tipping point with software like this when once enough people know about it and can trust it to use it on projects it will spread by word of mouth and then eventually you guys will be able to do less not more by receiving lots of external code submissions and comments on the forums from others externally to support people. Hoping it can get to this point...
Thanks for the feedback ! I hear you and you are totally right. When we launched Twill open source, we knew that we needed to invest bigtime, at least in the beginning, and we did but mostly focused on the core product rather than the onboarding process. We are now shifting our focus to that, including better documentation, code samples, tutorials, etc. And of course, being more responsive on Spectrum :) We're getting there! Thanks for your support, cool to see that you reskinned the UI, fun to see.
