Jo Liss on the JavaScript Jabber show

by Kasper Tidemann

Jo Liss, the creator of Solitr and broccoli, was recently on the JavaScript Jabber show to talk about broccoli.

Jo goes into detail about the differences between the asset pipeline in Ruby on Rails and backend-agnostic tools like broccoli. She explains common challenges like how the compile time of SASS projects are linear to the amount of files contained in the project, and how tools like make leverages timestamps to create incremental builds in order to address this.

Whether you have an interest in build tools or not, Jo’s thoughts on the matter are well worth a listen.
