Re: Better HIG layout
Should the example code be in the HIG or the granite doocuentation?
Maybe we could link to the API reference for our own wigdets, and
demonstrate techniques like padding and background tasks in the HIG

Our HIG feels a little abstract right now. It communicates the ideals
but gives little idea about how to implement the recommendations.
I thought it would be cool to include example code that implements
the recommendations in Vala/GTK/Granite. For example it's hard for me
to get all the padding right in
or implement proper handling of background tasks (btw, are we
updating the relevant HIG article or not?). A side-by-side layout
where you can see the recommendations AND example code that
implements them would be great IMO.
