What makes a toolkit great

You know what makes a toolkit great? When it does what it’s supposed to.

It seems like I have to learn a major toolkit for every job I get. For example, for the General Electric work I learned three.js, Unity3D, Adobe Script (for After Effects & Photoshop), among others. When you just hit the road coding and things just start doing what you intended for them to do, it’s a total win. This is so rare!

Sencha Touch and Appcelerator / Titanium are two toolkits that really actually truly work the way you want.

Conversely, Unity3D has an incredible feature list, but it almost never does what I intend for it to do. HTML/CSS in general is the same way.

Can you dig it?
