Google Web Starter Kit

Hi guys,

I just stumbled upon the Google Web Starter Kit and it seems pretty awesome! https://developers.google.com/web/starter-kit/

What do you guys think about it?

Hey Alexandru, I too think it's awesome, and I look forward to trying it out. My only criticism on it at the moment is, it requires Ruby and Sass to run (correct me if I'm wrong). I think this alone leaves out many developers who may not choose to use Ruby and Sass. Personally, I would like to see a pure JS and LESS option maybe. |This is purely personal ofcourse, as I have no yet delved into Ruby or Sass, to be honest I have not had much luck with them each time I try (I put it down to not be ready yet). My bad experiences are with home-brew, I get on much better with node and npm. But yes, I do think it's cool! :)

Awesome! I'm more of a Ruby and Sass person, so I love it! I also agree that they should add more language support (and maybe they will)
