The community and Client-First
Here's what the Webflow community is saying
Hafizz - Webflow Designer & Developer
Client-first does exactly what it’s name says. It’s not just for pro webflowers but for people who are getting started. It keeps the structured super neat and clean so it is readable for everyone without even looking to the design.
Thanks @thatsfinsweet @joekrug for Client-first. This changes my BEM approach of developing into a better way of working with Webflow. Simple and accessible for anyone.
Are you a front end developer struggling with CSS and HTML and their advanced properties?Try the @thatsfinsweet Client-First and @webflow combo.
Client-First is so, literally, client-first I was able to start using it without looking at any documentation. It allows non-developers to dive into class-editing in the most intuitive manner possible, speeding up builds, revisions, and bringing more and more talent to Webflow
The Client-First system is versatile, scalable, and makes class naming (the former bane of my existence) a breeze. It’s easily saved me 60+ hours of dev time and simplifies life for my clients too. Can’t thank @thatsfinsweet enough!
Thank you so much Finsweet, Client First improved my developing speed so much…love it
Checked this out at the weekend. Looks promising. V comprehensive. Will be trialling it for our next couple of @Webflow builds – https://finsweet.com/client-first/ - thank you @thatsfinsweet
Woah...The Client-first Style System that @thatsfinsweet just released is about to become a best practice in @webflow development...Get on the train!
I'm now able to create new web pages at 5x the speed thanks to @thatsfinsweet, with a more consistent structure and no more class naming issues. Good became better when Client First became a daily driver in my workflow.
