Nothing to see here ...
Stole the colors from Backpack for Laravel.
I normally try to stay away from CSS frameworks and the like, but I might actually use (some of) Bulma here, just to speed things up. I can lay out columns and menus on my own just fine, but forms and the like are going to require some utility classes anyway, so why reinvent the wheel? Might just steal some of its CSS, though, rather than stick with predefined class names and stuff. We’ll see.
Why not fork Quill, then, like I did with Monocle? Because I don’t necessarily like the server-client separation. I’ve ditched my Monocle variant for an integrated reader, after all. Why have two server-side apps communicate using JSON when they can directly talk to the same SQL database (and thus be merged into one)? Simplicity and speed and fewer dependencies over (largely theoretical, still) interoperability, I guess.
