Reuse wireframing code?

(Frank) #1

Chad in his playbook video explained that Thoughtbot actually uses html/css to build wireframes. I think it’s a great idea. However, how much backend code do you write to get it working? And how much of this code do you save and reuse in the real project?

@gniquil we use the high_voltage gem to create the pages and so we’re not creating any backend code.

One of the great things about wire framing in HTML and CSS is that the pages can be reused once you do start implementing. We move the page into its proper place once the controller etc are created and reuse it as the basis for the actual working page.
