With John Caserta (JC), Catherine Leigh Schmidt (CLS), Lukas WinklerPrins (LW).
CLS: That was cool.
LW: Yeah. It was a book generated in the browser.
JC: I want you two to work on updating this…
CLS: Make it more extensible and easy to use? Evan Brooks was the only one who really knew all the details.
LW: He was the maestro.
JC: Yeah, something like that. I want to be able to use this thing, to print out a blog, or a museum catalogue, or an interview project, or who knows what.
CLS: We can do that, for sure. The gist is, if you have a bunch of templated web content—like blog posts, or the catalogue for a museum show— which gets pumped through Jekyll to make your site, we want it to be easy to hit cmd-P and have a good-looking book!
LW: I think what we should do is keep the idea of Bindery.js, but scrap the spaghetti code we wrote as a class and get a clean slate. Make a little version.
CLS: A baby bindery.
JC: Sounds good. Babybindery can build a responsive book. Design your content for the web, then print. It handles the rest.
LW: As long as you’re using Jekyll.
