Why design is not better ?
Why contributors are not interested improving asbot design
Currently redoing the templates from scratch, it will make it easier to make nice themes. I've settled on first rewriting the templates using the current method (jinja2).
I did try doing that with the
svelte but it brings a lot of extra work (it will take 2-3x longer), so leaving this for the next iteration.
My guess is that the existing implementation is so bad that improving the design by tweaking what there is is pointless. What is needed is a complete rewrite of the front end, probably not using the django/jinja2 templates, b/c it feels outdated compared to the modern UI approaches.
So what would you suggest to use for modern Q&A websites as alternative to askbot? Do some other ready to use solutions exist which you think are very promising?
To enter a block of code:
Yes, I think you are absolutely right. The UI needs an update. It is getting backdated. The developers must take this into account and should take this seriously.
