If you had been any more vague it would’ve been a post about pink bunnies. What is this ‘fluff’ you’re talking about? Looking at the Ignited Code section right now, at the very top I see HMVC - no fluff there. Every single feature in that library (and actually all of wiredesignz’s libraries) was in some way suggested or inspired by the community.
Next is BackendPro, which I haven’t had the time to dig into, but it’s on my todo list.
So we go down one more. KhACL. Hands down, no doubt, absolutely no fluff at all. That library has a purpose, does it’s stuff and then get’s out of your way.
There’s no real point to keep going, just take a look at the amount of feedback those three have. All of this stuff started out very specific and fed on community feedback.
These ‘personal touches’ don’t come out of nowhere. You may not need a feature in a library, but that doesn’t mean that other people have no use for it. If I don’t need anything complicated with lots of ‘fluff’, I’ll take five minutes out of my lunchbreak to code it myself.
