What is your workflow right now?

For example:

1. What OS do you use?
2. What editor do you use?
3. How do you setup Foundation?
4. How do you include third party plugins?
5. How do you upload your files?
6. Do you use git?
7. What needs improvement?

I'm happy to hear your opinions.

Me:

  1. I am on Windows 8
  2. I use Sublime Text 3
  3. Foundation setup is with libsass
  4. I install 3rd party plugins as bower components, and include their css/js from bower_components folder and that doesn't feel right.
  5. I upload my files with FIlezilla. But it takes a lot of time uploading a Foundation project which is installed with libsass.
  6. Yes
  7. I need improvement on how to upload the files fast, and best practices on how to include 3rd party plugins.

OSX

  1. What editor do you use?

Sublime Text 3

Using the CLI and Libsass

Git is very important to what we do and especially in a team environment

  1. What needs improvement?

We're working on dropping the Ruby dependancy. In our next CLI, we will try to do that and also have 1 CLI that can make and Apps, Email or Sites project.

  1. What OS do you use?

Debian GNU/Linux "Wheezy"

  1. What editor do you use?

gedit

  1. How do you setup Foundation?

Using my own WordPress starter themes for F3 and F4
Ole Fredrik Lie's "FoundationPress" for F5

Absolutely no Ruby/Compass!
I do everything now with grunt-sass on my node-equipped server

  1. How do you include third party plugins?

Plugs are included with the starter themes,
bower with FoundationPress

  1. How do you upload your files?

Nautilus SSH, git clone

  1. Do you use git?

Yes

  1. What needs improvement?

F5 still has compatibility problems/bugs you can read on this forum every day, so I'll stick with F3 and F4.

I've created WordPress starter themes combining Automattic, Inc's sassified "_s" and Zurb, Inc's F3/F4, easily stylable with node-grunt-sass. If you're interested in giving them a spin, just drop a line!

On your more broad question on workflow, I try be very FEO minded when creating a custom workflow and one that automates as much as possible.
For example as using libsass to reduce compile time, pleeease for vendor prefixes & combine media queries (and alot more), assemble for templates and metatags/seo, livereload, phantomjs for screenshots and testing, etc...

  1. I am on Windows 8 (which makes me cry and i will switch to mac because of it).
  2. I use Sublime Text 3
  3. I use a custom grunt build process to download latest version via bower, then assemble for rapid prototyping.
  4. Bower baby
  5. Grunt Deploy (it's integrated into my build process)(https://www.npmjs.com/package/grunt-ftp)
  6. Yes, git is a requirement for the tools i use so i don't have a choice.
  7. Improvement? I think it would be nice see foundation to have more built in components and templates/snippets as they are rather hidden.

Just curious, why do you ask?

Wow, I hadn't thought that so many responses will come :).

@Hans McMurdy the main reason is to compare myself to others and to level up my workflow.
