I have been looking at how the blog board is built in Atomik and am a little bit disappointed.
I was expecting the slots in the board to be built out from the way Containers work, but it is a completely separate mechanism.
I was expecting the topics filter to be like adding a topics block to an area, like a sidebar or a container area, but it is actually implemented as a hard coded stack display in the board template.
Containers are so simple and elegant in code and in UI. Boards are massively complicated, both in code and in UI.
Whilst I really like the concept, I can’t help but feel the underlying architecture has jumped on the wrong train a while back and ended up a little bit astray.
