I want to start discussion about goals of getbem.com site and how we planning to achieve them.
(no matter what size of project are they working on)
To achieve this we trying to separate BEM methodology from concrete libraries and tools, which will decrease threshold of entry in methodology. It is quite obvious, that BEM can be separated into Naming, Structuring and Building steps. Each of those can be used separately and give benefits of structured project or BEM naming in single index.css file.
Those articles are in pretty bad state for now—they have no illustrations, weak examples and very-very short. So we are looking for authors which share our point of view, that can help us to write those articles.
We think, that bem.info have too many information and arcticles. Some of them are outdated, some of them are not translated to English. This leads to confusion and produces frustration, that associated with BEM methodology.
Concrete block libraries should be chosen and developed by project needs. There are not many ready to use blocks’ libraries out there, so we planning to provide instructions for developing and testing custom blocks libraries.
We think, that all this will help developers to create lots of great libraries for BEM community.
I agree with all said :-) I think that as a result of this disscussion we need to set up a list of goals for getbem. Probably they are sub-goals of the main goal. And then we will be able to decide what can be our steps forward to those goals.
I can start with listing the problems why BEM is not accepted yet in Europe/America according to my western experience. Needed?
@varya this is definitely must-know information! Could you create an issue with them?
I can create a separate issue, but I cannot split all the problems into different issues. This would be to much work about structuring. As a first step I prefer to give the whole bunch of information together. Will do this soon, I created a task in my personal ToDo list.
@floatdrop great job man. I really loved the idea behind BEM and read almost all of the bem.info articles (of course the ones written in English!) and your website has been written in more simple terms and tried to explain everything easier to understand and faster to grasp for newbies!
Great job! I really believe that BEM deserves more to be known by more people and get scattered around the world!
