Yes, you are correct. The Bootstrap Code base blows up the whole code basis and at the moment there is a lot of code we don’t use.

Means we need a customized Bootstrap. Michael, correct my if I'm wrong. If my assumption is right it doesn't worked well with the Website.

During the last years I designed for responsive webapps and native mobile apps those grids restrict me more as they help. I also taked with a Frontend Dev at my work. He confirmed that such layout grids makes the code more complex if you need to break that grid for some usecases. Now with CSS-Grid it's pretty easy to build up a responsive layout.

I already worked a little bit with CSS-Grid so I know the basics.

Honestly Bugzilla is extremly annoying to use. It's very mighty, of course. But takes 3x more time to create a new ticket as e.g. Trello takes and screenshots etc. can't be placed from the clipboard. Which is very very useful for bug-tickets ;)

I use Wekan to communicate with my clients, hosted on the smallest Digital Ocean host. I’m happy with it, before there was a Google Speadsheet that was really messy.
