Panels versus themes: What is the best way?
Since Panels is included in Drupal 8 core, isn't it the way forward? Do we still need to design static HTML pages and then integrate them with Drupal, or Panel everything out and directly place content there be it block, views or from some other modules as they are all readily available?
The issue of performance with Panels can be solved to an extent using the Boost module. We can't have all what we want; we have to compromise at something.
