Tailwind versus BEM


Some really refreshing technological comparison writing from Eric Bailey. Like, ya know, everything in life, we don’t have to hate or love everything. Baby bear thinking, I like to say. There are benefits and drawbacks. Every single bullet point here is well-considered and valid. I really...

The Core Web Vitals hype train


Some baby bear thinking from Katie Sylor-Miller: my excitement for Core Web Vitals is tempered with a healthy skepticism. I’m not yet convinced that Largest Contentful Paint (LCP), First Input Delay (FID), and Cumulative Layout Shift (CLS) are the right metrics that all sites should...

Graphery SVG


I’ve compared SVG and Canvas before. If you’re trying to decide between them, read that. I’d say the #1 difference between them is vector (SVG) versus raster (Canvas). But the #2 difference is how you work with them. SVG is declarative, as in, literal elements that express what they are through...

What’s Missing from CSS?


The survey results from the State of CSS aren’t out yet, but they made this landing page that randomly shows you what one person wrote to answer that question. Just clicking the reload button a bunch, I get the sense that the top answers are: Container Queries Parent...

Firefox 83


There’s a small line in the changelog that is is big news for CSS: We’ve added support for CSS Conic Gradients (bug 1632351) and (bug 1175958). 🎉🎉🎉 Conic gradients are circular, just like their radial counterpart, but place color stops...

Thinking Outside the Box with CSS Grid


Great tutorial from Alex Trost (based on some demos, like this one, from Andy Barefoot) showcasing how, while CSS grid has straight grid lines across and down, you can place items across grid lines creating a staggered effect that looks pretty rad. Grid-like, but it appears to align to diagonal...

Upptime


GitHub Actions are like free computers. Well, there is pricing, but even free plans get 2,000 minutes a month. You write configuration files for what you want these computers to do. Those configuration files go into a repo, so typically they do things specific to that repo. I’m sure that...

CSS Background Patterns


Nice little tool from Jim Raptis: CSS Background Patterns. A bunch of easy-to-customize and copy-and-paste backgrounds that use hard stop CSS gradients to make classy patterns. Not quite as flexible as SVG backgrounds, but just as lightweight. Like this: CodePen Embed Fallback Speaking of cool...

Logical layout enhancements with flow-relative shorthands


Admission: I’ve never worked on a website that was in anything other than English. I have worked on websites that were translated by other teams, but I didn’t have much to do with it. I do, however, spend a lot of time thinking in terms of block-level and inline-level elements....

SVGBOX


I’ve been saying for years that a pretty good icon system is just dropping in icons with inline <svg> where you need them. This is simple to do, offers full design control, has (generally) good performance, and means you aren’t smurfing around with caching and browser support...

How to Work With WordPress Block Patterns


Just a little post I wrote up over at The Events Calendar blog. The idea is that a set of blocks can be grouped together in WordPress, then registered in a register_block_pattern() function that makes the group available to use as a “block pattern” in any page or post. Block patterns...

JavaScript Operator Lookup


Okay, this is extremely neat: Josh Comeau made this great site called Operator Lookup that explains how JavaScript operators work. There are some code examples to explain what they do as well, which is pretty handy. My favorite bit of UI design here are the tags at the bottom of the search...

Bidirectional scrolling: what’s not to like?


Some baby bear thinking from Adam Silver. Too hot: [On horizontal scrolling, like Netflix] This pattern is accessible, responsive and consistent across screen sizes. And it’s pretty easy to implement. Too cold: That’s a lot of pros for a pattern that in reality has some critical...

This page is a truly naked, brutalist html quine.


Here’s a fun page coming from secretGeek.net. You don’t normally think “fun” with brutalist minimalism but the CSS trickery that makes it work on this page is certainly that. The HTML is literally displayed on the page as tags. So, in a sense, the HTML is both the page...

Additive Animations in CSS


Daniel C. Wilson explains how with CSS @keyframe animations, when multiple of them are applied to an element, they do both work. But if any properties are repeated, only the last one works. They override each other. I’ve seen this limitation overcome by applying keyframes to nested elements...

compute cuter


Get that desk more cuter, fam. Amy (@sailorhg) has this perfectly cute minisite with assorted desktop backgrounds, fonts, editor themes, keyboard stuff, and other accessories. These rainbow cables are great. And speaking of fonts, we’re still plucking away at this microsite for coding fonts...
