Discussion on: Practicing YAGNI - Show me the code

YAGNI is really framework agnostic. One might argue you could call YAGNI on the use of a framework. However, I try not to call YAGNI on tooling - common tech among a team. That’s not to say their use should never be challenged, but YAGNI shouldn’t be the only motivation.

So, yes, YAGNI is something you practice regardless of tooling. In the case of a framework, you could use YAGNI as a motivation to stick closely with the conventions of the framework and not try to customize it too much.

YAGNI must work well with something like Sails.js then.
