comment Is it okay to not completely understand code functionality?
I think there's a distinction here between "understanding" and "being capable of understanding". Copy/pasting code that you couldn't understand if you stared at it is a different proposition to copy/pasting code that you're happy to look at more closely if something goes wrong.

comment Writing commit messages as a solo developer?
Interesting to revisit this answer. I've taken a somewhat extreme position recently: no commit messages at all. But that's on a pretty flat HTML/JS project where I can't imagine ever attempting to track down a regression. Any effort spent writing commit messages would almost certainly be better spent somewhere else. (Not all projects are in this category!)

comment How to create different paths for users to take through the pages in my site?
Depends whether that's a requirement or not. For A/B testing or psychology trials, it's probably irrelevant. (If someone wants to break your app, they're useless to you as a source of information anyway.)

comment What's the right way to work with a graphic designer?
Ha, do you put your average quality work in your portfolio? :) Anyway, if they converted a bunch of static images into a bunch of static HTML pages...it's still a fair bit of work to turn those into dynamically generated pages, decomposing them into nested templates etc. I wonder what kinds of sites this process would actually be useful for.

Interesting - mypsdtohtml.com . Wonder what the HTML is like - and whether they can handle things like Django templatetags.

+1 for "focus on components, not whole pages". Good idea.
