Compile CSS

CSS is arguably the best means of UI customization.

Consider an example of graphic-editing of UI elements:

Using CSS, all elements in that project could potentially be done without graphics.

Pros

  • practically all designers now know CSS
  • it's vastly capable

Cons

  • can't really decouple CSS from HTML whereas HTML is the biggest performance bottleneck (we'll solve this using different means)

The Problem

Unfortunately, CSS can get incredibly bulky. So what if we could design using CSS in a way that could feasibly be compiled to a local app?

In general, everything would be styled using CSS, in the same bulky way it exists in browsers. But when compiled, it's no longer bulky.

Benefits

  • we have the full flexibility of CSS for all apps
  • we have the full speed of native apps if needed

CSS sans DOM

CSS is amazing, but the HTML DOM isn't. It's just so heavy. Maybe if JSON or some similar format could replace HTML/XML, it could be made lighter? Better, I think, would be to use a human readable format like Eno . It's as terse but much easier to read than JSON.

Why English

English is not superior to all other languages. It's just pervasive, enough so that many propgramming languages have English constructs built into them. If we're designing a system that uses natural language as a programming language, English is optimal since it's the most familiar.
