The community and Client-First
Here's what the Webflow community is saying
To be honest my work flow is very close to what @thatsfinsweet do for client first. They have made there system truly global to all devs and clients.
When I started webflow, one of the things I struggled the most with was naming conventions. What a blessing client-first is. @thatsfinsweet
We've been working with Client First since it's Beta and we couldn't work with something else. It gives a common language for clients and freelancers alike, we love it!
@thatsfinsweet Client-first is a little bit hard to understand at first but it is one of the best styling system out there 🔥
Ever since I started Webflow, I knew I needed to find the best build methodology out there to optimize my workflow. So I found CF. Besides the many hours saved for me, my team and clients - how good it feels to deliver such high quality digital products - can be just amazing. #CF
Client-First has been key in the scaling our agency. We were able to hand the docs off to potential hires and quickly found candidates who were on board with using Client-First. Now, all of our build across our developers are the same and can be easily updated across the board.
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
