Anahita Podcast Episode 10: You Tweet, I get a honk!

Why do napkins work better for drawing ideas?

The following is the podcast recorded last week on Sunday September 30th 2012 with Ash Sanieyan, Bob Bloom (, Nick Balestra  (, and myself ( Rastin Mehr ). I really wanted to publish this podcast this Monday, but it was the Canadian Thanksgiving and we were all stuffed with food and marinated with wine. The content of this podcast is a bit more on the technical side in order to nurture the hacker in you.


In this podcast we discuss the following topics:

  1. Designing responsive templates for application interfaces using Twitter Bootstrap.
  2. Using LessCSS technology for application interface design.
  3. To what direction is Anahita heading in regards with discarding all the Joomla code and replacing them with native Anahita code?
  4. Using Capistrano technology in order to have more frequent Anahita releases.
  5. How will Anahita be utilizing Git and RubyGem technologies in combination with Capistrano for agile development and deployment of projects?
  6. A summery of Anahita as a commercial open source project, it’s core team, and the current involvement of the Anahita tribe in the development process.

  1. After working with a handful of different responsive design approaches I settled on Goldilocks for most of my projects. It’s ridiculously easy to implement, and I’ve found it to be the most liberating in terms of design.

    Golidlocks doesn’t worry about pixels, device size or resolution, but instead focuses your project on readability – using the optimum reading width in ems (not pixels) as its starting point. The result is a design that’s device, resolution and pixel independent.

    I just began experimenting with Anahita, and at first glance it looks like Bootstrap is baked right into Anahita’s base template – so it’s probably going to be very difficult to use any sort of alternative, even in a custom theme. But if you’re exploring other approaches to responsive design definitely check out Goldilocks.
