Experiment w/ a Static Site Generator to Design this Portfolio & Notes site
Out of the box roots comes with a mix of jade for templating, stylus for css pre-processing and the axis library. I removed some of these defaults in favor of a jade, skeleton, and sass combo. Stylus did seem tempting but i preffered to work with sass for now.
The development team for roots.cx has moved on to Spike which uses Webpack for the heavy lift. I've used Webpack a few times before and it continues to make gains as the swiss army knife of module packagers. Roots.cx felt a bit more straight forward and certainly met my needs -- I'll have to consider Spike and Webpack another time.
