Building an admin template


#1

Hey guys,

I’m designing an admin template now and planning to sell it here. Problem is, I’m not sure what the users expect to see about the format.

  1. Should I just write it like an ordinary html files with some javascript functionalities and expect users to hack and implement it themselves?
  2. Do users expect some sort of mvc-ready product so that they can use it more in the proper way, no need to hack stuff?
  3. Is it a good idea to use a component-based approach so that users need only to recall the specific html syntax, under a certain framework?

For instance, I have a certain element on html, it is prepared with two states that work with css classes. So I need to use javascript to toggle the class and let css to handle the styles. Question: The way I toggle the class with js, is it important for users? Or is it safer expect users to use their own way since template is more about styles?
