Every time I’m working on BaseElements, there is an ongoing struggle between adding more features and making it easy to use. Recently I came across this article on Neven Mrgan’s Tumbl which is kind of related to the subject, but the final quote I think summed it up neatly :
“do less, and do the best less you can”
I think it explains a lot in that you’re better off doing the main features well and not adding extras that you either can’t or don’t have the time to do well.
My goal with version 3 of BaseElements is to reduce the number of things that aren’t part of the core of BE, while making the core tasks easier, clearer and faster.
