The Optimized Dev #11: Trying New CSS Things

🚦 START HERE

Let’s talk about CSS.

The popularity of CSS frameworks is nothing new. Bootstrap (and others) started the trend toward developer efficiency many years ago, and today Tailwind is a dominant player on this stage. The evolution shows just how far the developer experience of styling sites has come. 

At the same time, the convenience of those frameworks can put a bit of distance between us and good old CSS, which can make it more challenging to keep up with all of the new advancements that are happening there. And there have been many in recent years. Even native nesting is on its way, which is an idea that's been around with tools like Sass since 2006!

Some particularly exciting advancements have been CSS trigonometry functions. With functions like sin() and cos(), CSS is taking a step that can help devs create more complex animations and effects without involving bloated JavaScript libraries. So, this month, we're going to take some time to get back to the not-so-basic world of CSS by giving these a try!

(Still not convinced that CSS is fun to explore? Maybe this will change your mind.)


πŸš€ YOUR CHALLENGE, SHOULD YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT

Create a clock with sin() and cos()

This month, let's dig into a tutorial from CSS-Tricks to take a tour of these functions. What's really cool is that you can compare the result with an article from all the way back in 2012 to see just how much things have changed.
