The documentation is very impressive. There were far more detailed examples than I would have imagined; usually all we would get are the basics. It also speaks to just how many mobile ready controls there are available, compared to a generic responsive css framework. Then we get to the javascript part. Being built on Angular, I wonder how this framework, along with many others, will handle the transition to 2.0? I know at this point it's sort of beating a dead horse, then insulting its mother, but I think it's a valid question for anyone considering a framework like this (which I am). I'm considering spiking a prototype for a new external web application that we want to primarily deliver to our employees on their mobile devices (we don't have the resources to natively target Android and iOS, nor the need given the app's purpose). Is there any commercial support for this framework? I could only find information on their upcoming companion products.
