Inclusively Hidden

2019-04-20T03:04:51+02:00April 20th, 2019|Categories: News, Tutorials|Tags: |

Scott O'Hara recently published "Inclusively Hidden," a nice walkthrough of the different ways to hide things on the web. Nothing is ever cut and dry when it comes to the web! What complicates this is that hidden begs the question: hidden for whom? Different answers to that have different solutions: Hidden for everyone? display: none; [...]

Tabs: It’s Complicated™

2019-04-20T03:04:50+02:00April 20th, 2019|Categories: News, Tutorials|Tags: |

I've said before one quick and powerful thing you can learn as a front-end developer just getting starting with JavaScript is changing classes. const button = document.querySelector(".my-button"); const element = document.querySelector(".content"); button.addEventListener("click", function() { element.classList.toggle("sparkles"); }); We could use that skill to build some tabs, right? Right. We got this. Say we have this changing [...]

How to Get a Progressive Web App into the Google Play Store

2019-04-20T03:04:43+02:00April 20th, 2019|Categories: News, Tutorials|Tags: |

PWA (Progressive Web Apps) have been with us for some time now. Yet, each time I try explaining it to clients, the same question pops up: "Will my users be able to install the app using app stores?" The answer has traditionally been no, but this changed with Chrome 72 which shipped a new feature [...]

Faking env() to Use it Now

2019-04-19T03:05:11+02:00April 19th, 2019|Categories: News, Tutorials|Tags: |

There is already an env() function in CSS, but it kinda came out of nowhere as an Apple thing for dealing with "The Notch" but it has made it's way to be a draft spec. The point will be for UAs or authors to declare variables that cannot be changed. Global const for CSS, sorta. [...]

Creating Reusable Base Classes in TypeScript with a Real-Life Example

2019-04-19T03:05:10+02:00April 19th, 2019|Categories: News, Tutorials|Tags: |

Hey CSS-Tricksters! Bryan Hughes was kind enough to take a concept from an existing post he published on converting to TypeScript and take it a few couple steps further in this post to elaborate on creating reusable base classes. While this post doesn’t require reading the other one, it’s certainly worth checking it out because [...]

An Event Apart Boston is Coming. Save Now!

2019-04-19T03:05:09+02:00April 19th, 2019|Categories: News, Tutorials|Tags: |

(This is a sponsored post.) An Event Apart Boston is almost here! We're talking, like, less than a month away. If you've been holding off from registering, this might be your last chance because time and seating are both limited. Besides, we're talking about three days of pure knowledge-dropping by an impressive lineup of speakers [...]

Clever code

2019-04-18T03:06:32+02:00April 18th, 2019|Categories: News, Tutorials|Tags: |

This week, Chris Ferdinandi examined a clever JavaScript snippet, one that's written creatively with new syntax features, but is perhaps less readable and performant. It's a quick read, but his callout of our industry's fixation on cleverness is worth... calling out: ...we’ve become obsessed as an industry with brevity and clever code, and it results [...]

The Power of Named Transitions in Vue

2019-04-17T03:04:55+02:00April 17th, 2019|Categories: News, Tutorials|Tags: |

Vue offers several ways to control how an element or component visually appears when inserted into the DOM. Examples can be fading in, sliding in, or other visual effects. Almost all of this functionality is based around a single component: the transition component. A simple example of this is with a single v-if based on [...]
