Intuitive Third Party Packages

In relevance  to my package npm "flavorstrap" this is a little of a working progress for me and a few of my github projects I hopes it helps others. I've based this heavily on what I've seen others do  and what I think looks helpful to others. In that there enough context provided for others to go off from github package. I I face this problem with sometimes but I love to code so I spend the extra time to read someone else's code using a project as well. It helps if the documentation isn't there or if the code shows something the developer didn't think of.  Now this is just in my opinion and not so much a complain but advice for myself. I would definitely say I have used my share of third party libraries more often than actually written any but I do appreciate the ones well written. For example bootstrap and android's documentation pretty good and they even include some examples. However there are a couple of things I would suggest. For starters d…

Nuget Packages You May Not want to use

A good example is Bootstrap, which you should try using less instead of your own css file other customizing the bootstrap css. The reason for this is because less allows you to separate your styles from the root of bootstrap and makes it simpler for later updates with bootstrap.
