comment DRYest approach to “rendering” drag-and-drop template editor results to HTML
I don't think using Polymer client-side is the best choice here; I want to produce static HTML output, without requiring all users to download the Polymer library and a bunch of external assets. I've clarified my question in this regard. Also, I haven't found any existing CMS that will do that to a level of quality I need. I basically want Squarespace's admin; can you recommend anything open-source that works so beautifully?

comment PHP package management with/without Composer
IMO it simplifies things a lot. Keeping everything bundled up including its dependencies minimises problems. Yes, it's a larger bundle, but unless that's actually becoming a problem bandwidth or storage wise, I'd just accept it as the cost of managing dependencies.

comment SourceTree app, how do I know what is my current branch?
@Isuru I don't know. I'd guess more or less random, no real meaning can be ascribed to them.

comment Object Oriented Programming in JavaScript. Is there life without it?
@Stefaan "Classes" are containers that data is injected into which is only accessible to certain functions ("methods") within that container. This can be modeled perfectly using functions and aspects of closures, it's the same idea. Maybe you're thinking of deeply nested trees of callbacks within callback; if so nobody said that's either good or OOP.

@Robert Just because it's in the browser doesn't mean it's trivial. I find Google Maps a perfect example of a very non-trivial app/API that uses Javascript OOP quite well.

@Robert I hereby give permission to use that comment as answer, if a code sample is added. I'm not fluent enough in Javascript to quickly whip one up correctly at the moment, as I'm a little busy. :)

Javascript does its "OOP" using functions and closures. Private methods are realized by declaring them the right way in the right scope. Yes, it's different, but it's possible. It doesn't have to be "sorta OOP", you just need to apply it correctly. In fact, it helps to wrap your head around Javascript's way of OOP, since it gives you a new perspective on what "classic OOP" in other languages is and how little you actually need to implement it; one language construct (function) is sufficient.
