Support » Plugin: Product Widget Slider for WooCommerce » Use Standardised Technology

  • Not impressed by the forced use of SASS by this plugin. CSS is used everywhere else in WordPress and for consistency should be used here too. I had to do some heavy modification to this plugin’s stylesheet and having everything in SASS was only a hindrance. If I wanted to use SASS I could always do so locally and then compile to CSS before adding to this plugin.

    Hello phpika

    A one star for building the slider with Sass technology

    Sass is the most mature, stable, and powerful professional grade CSS extension language in the world.

    and all the benefits that brings.

    We do offer the option of upgrading to the Pro version which along with all of the extra features comes Sass #dynamic {stylesheets} which allows creating any Sass style at the click of a few buttons – without touching the code.

    If a user chooses instead to do what you have done and modify the styles by code that is a decision that they can make as you have done (if they have the time and know how) – but to give the plugin a one star rating because of you made that decision – is that fair? You obviously think it is.

    By the way – all of our 17 plugins on WordPress.org are Sass and a number of our WooCommerce plugins have features built in backbone.js with more backbone features to come.

    It’s the inconsistency I have trouble with. You are stacking extra technologies on top of one another. WordPress is built on CSS, it is standard and something everybody knows how to edit. The thing is Woocommerce is built on LESS! If you were going to use a precompiler you could have at least aimed for some consistency and built it on top of that. Instead, if one wishes to use your plugin with Woocommerce they then need to know 2 CSS precompilers on top of CSS.
