I was looking through the seaside mail list archives for info about
templating, and I noticed in one post that the lead developer of Nori
gave up on templates, saying that they are "passe". Earlier then that,
Seaside seems to have had some form of templating, but it was dropped as
the html rendering system matured.
Why is templating considered bad, or passe? (That's asked in earnest,
not rhetorically -- I was unable to come up with a google incantation
that would coax out an answer). The 'E' in Seaside stands for
"Enterprise" -- doesn't that suggest some sort of collaboration among
Anyway, starting with the premise that templates are bad, what would be
your idea of a good workflow for collaboration between programmers and
ui designers and graphic artists when developing seaside apps? What
would the tool look like that helps facilitate such a workflow? Is it
enough to have email and photoshop, or is a more specialized tool in order?
