via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to amitrathore from Siri Fort, New Delhi

@twitortat You don’t really have to worry. Use JS as an enhancement rather than a dependency. That should keep things future proof.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to twitortat from New Delhi, India

@bibhasdn @twitortat UC has managed to get themselves preinstalled on many manufacturers (particularly Chinese).

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to bibhasdn from New Delhi, India

@bibhasdn UC works like Opera Mini. So server side rendering + compression to speed up. @twitortat

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to bibhasdn from New Delhi, India

@twitortat UC takes server side snapshots to speed browsing. So reducing JS dependency is a good idea.

via Tweetbot for iΟS in reply to souvikdg from New Delhi, India

@twitortat As a general rule, progressive enhancement is more foolproof, though more work. @threepointone

@jitendravyas After tom, it will be interesting to dive into this aspect in another . How well CMS works with AMP / Apple News.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to jitendravyas from Panchshila Park, New Delhi

@jitendravyas To some extent, but a CMS can help. E.g. @CraftCMS runs the WYSIWYG output through HTML Purifier. @brandonkelly

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to jitendravyas from Panchshila Park, New Delhi

@jitendravyas We find ourselves using @CraftCMS often. It has no starter theme / templates. We get 100% control on that front.

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to souvikdg from Siri Fort, New Delhi

@jitendravyas Bad markup is typically a problem at the point of authoring i.e. WYSIWYG. Even @contentful can’t work around itha

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to jitendravyas from Panchshila Park, New Delhi

@jitendravyas But designer / developer experience can vary a lot — not a consumer problem but organisation issue@contentfulu@miranjnj

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to souvikdg from Siri Fort, New Delhi

@jitendravyas Absolutely. Most popular CMSes are customisable to the point that you can completely control the markup. @contentful @miranj

via Tweetbot for Mac in reply to jitendravyas from Siri Fort, New Delhi

@jitendravyas CMS is a management system. The primary user is the person authoring / managing content, rather than consuming. @miranj
