How can we improve Sensei?

Great ability for developers to customize templates

I find myself unsatisfied with Sensei plugin when I discovered how limiting the ability to theme the content output actually is. It is EXTREMELY difficult, even when using action hooks and filters, to modify what content Sensei displays. For example, you can't specify if you want an excerpt or the full content displayed for lessons on a single course archive page. This is particularly true when it comes to using extensions, such as Modules; in that situation you can only show a simple link. The content is physically in a database and accessible, so please let developers extend capabilities by accessing that data.

    I couldn't agree more! Also, why do I have to alter multiple files in order to change the display of courses archive, my courses and courses index?? This should just be one template.
