Thanks for your point of view. While I understand Google will push for his own product, WordPress also push for this because it is an open way to compete with Facebook/Instagram Story.
Also; I understand using flexbox from scratch over a framework is probably faster but, personally I think if the focus is helping the community and to build a community having a commons framework which define rules help a lot.
Often I think Publii is simply a way to market 2 dudes which sell their time, which I’m fine with it, I just simply think Publii is not the most transparent project.
Also often, Bob is opinionated, which again, I could understand, this is how he could focus and reach his personal goal, but again this, IMO, conflict with the Open Source Project idea.
Anyway; Publii obviously fill a gaps of a need.
