Subject Re: [DISCUSS] Change Apache NiFi Fluid Design System naming
Date Thu, 17 May 2018 16:06:24 GMT
I'd be +1 and thanks for explaining.

Just using a descriptive name and keeping the concept open for various
design systems to be leveraged is a good approach and doesn't require
us to change anything later.  Doing this now before a first release is
a big win as well. Also didn't realize these design systems were at
play so that is cool and would be good to have in the readme for sure.
Would help people that want to contribute have some frame of reference
to start from.

Thanks
Joe
