    How can you disagree that nobody forced you to upgrade? As far as I'm aware Lindy and Charles aren't going around threatening people to upgrade.
    It's not difficult to grasp the fact that new software - especially software that has been re-written from scratch is going to experience a lot of issues early on. Why do you think none of the major clients (Neowin, Evernote, NHL etc) aren't immediately upgrading to IPS4? There's probably a ton of other reasons but I bet you a major one is the huge risk involved in upgrading to new software that hasn't had any time to mature.

    Nobody forced you to upgrade. Comments like this are ridiculous.

    Bring back CSS/JS IPS4 Framework Documentation
    A few months ago during the alpha testing on the IPS4 preview site there was an excellent documentation section that provided really helpful information about the CSS & JS framework in IPS4. Please could this be updated and restored on this site?
    Up until now, I've managed okay without it. However, I just discovered a feature in IPS4 that can be enabled by a single data-attribute in the HTML. This feature in particular is something I spent a couple of days building & testing in my own theme framework. If I had documentation on the framework this could have been avoided. 
    I'm aware there's an old IP.Content export with this data floating around somewhere but I'm suggesting that an official section be added to this site.
    Thanks.

    JS framework: ips.ui.menu too restrictive
    I'm trying to enhance ipsMenu's slightly by adding css animations to when the menu's open and close.
    However, I've found that the _showMenu() method is too restrictive and is preventing me from applying any kind of CSS animation as there's no way of differentiating whether its open or closed. I blame this party down to using the show() jQuery method. It's pretty annoying for other devs as there's no class we can hook into with CSS. It's better (and faster) to add a class and then apply styles via CSS.
    I also had a look at hooking into the menuOpened & menuClosed events to add or remove my CSS class but they're fired at the end of the method so aren't a viable option for me.

    I have FileMerge too - I'll try it out.
    ​I think the issue here is that most designers will never feel the need to download the developer tools as it's assumed that they would be for plugin & app development. More importantly - Without digging through the developer tools package; It's quite unclear that it even contains the necessary HTML / CSS files that we need to make these comparisons. Mainly due to the description on the marketplace being too vague and linking to an article that is of no help to designers. Worryingly, I've been building plugins since the early BETA's and hadn't even considered this as an option until you just said .

    Do you know of any software that can generate a report as comprehensive as that? I use Kaleidoscope for Mac which is one of the most popular tools available and even that compares one file at a time (AFAIK).

    ​Awesome

    ​Perhaps because hardly any themes are available yet? Give it time :).
    There is nothing on that screenshot at all that couldn't be achieved with ease in IPS4. It's basic CSS.

    ​What do you mean? Of course that's still possible. It's just HTML & CSS.
