Now that I have Genesis, my goal is to be able to turn any designed PSD into a Genesis website (or as close as possible). Genesis of course provides only a handful of layout options. Which you can edit through css and php coding, but even though I'm a fairly knowledgable developer I wish to make it myself as easy as possible. I would expect pro-developers to do that also 😎
What do you pro-developers use extra to make your website design go as easy and smooth as possible. Are there plug-in's around which are pretty standard to use next to the Genesis Framework. I've heard about Page Builders like Beaver Builder for example. To further design the Genesis layout visually instead of coding. Or the Genesis Dambuster plugin to also be able to create full width websites.
Can you recommend some plug-ins which are pretty much standard in use next to working with Genesis? What tools and plug-ins do you use to turn any PSD into a (Genesis) theme?
I don't use plugins for anything having to do with design. I found it easier to first build my own basic template using CSS grid and flex box and use that for most of what I build. Besides, I have never seen any page builder that doesn't add an extraordinary amount of bloated code. They add too much overhead.
As far as Dambuster for fullwidth. I think it's unnecessary because creating any fullwidth area can be done with 2-3 lines in CSS.
