We cannot talk about web development without talking about Responsive Design. It’s just a given these days and has been for many years. Media queries are a part of Responsive Design and they aren’t going anywhere. Since the introduction of media queries (literally decades ago), CSS has evolved to the points that there are a lot of tricks that can help us drastically reduce the usage of media queries we use.
Translating web applications into multiple languages is a common requirement. In the past, creating multilingual applications was not an easy task, but recently (thanks to the people behind the Next.js framework and Lingui.js library) this task has gotten a lot easier.
As web and mobile applications become more mature and complex, software engineers invent clever new ways of improving the interaction between client and server within an application. One of the biggest paradigm shifts over the last few years in this regard has been GraphQL, an open-source query language and runtime for manipulating APIs.
We have many well-known chart types: bar, donut, line, pie, you name it. All popular chart libraries support these. Then there are the chart types that do not even have a name. Check out this dreamt-up chart with stacked (nested) squares that can help visualize relative sizes, or how different values compare to one another
On a vu dans un précédent article, comment écrire ses messages de commits clairs et concis, mais cela ne suffit pas. Beaucoup de personnes, par simplicité, créées des commits contenant l’ensemble de leurs modifications. Pourtant procéder ainsi peut poser de nombreux soucis. C’est pourquoi il est souvent recommandé d’écrire des commits atomiques.
The new CSS accent-color property makes it quick and easy to roll out our brand colors to certain form inputs by leveraging user agent styles. In this article we’ll take a look at what it does and how to use it alongside color-scheme for simple, accessible checkboxes and radio buttons — and imagine how we might use it in the future.
If you’ve dabbled in functional programming or a state management tool like Redux, you’ve probably encountered the concept of the reducer function. In fact, if you’re like me, you were clobbered by references to reducers to the point that the word began to lose all meaning.
There is a new thing coming in CSS: @layer. As with all new things, it takes time to really wrap your head around it. And despite me tapping at my keyboard about it, full disclosure, I’m not sure my mind is fully there yet. Fortunately, smart people are on the case!
Complexity, frustration, bloated. Those are the first words that come to my mind whenever I see Webpack. For the past couple of years in particular however, I’ve stopped using Webpack to develop them, opting instead to use Rollup as my primary bundler for apps.
Depuis 15 ans, les nouveaux services décentralisés se multiplient, facilitant le travail en équipe et le partage de fichiers, permettant de se passer d'une « autorité centrale ». Comme souvent dans l'informatique moderne, cela doit beaucoup à des travaux menés à la fin des années 70, dont les arbres de Merkle.
For websites and platforms that provide users with content or reviews, it’s important to include a star rating. Recently, I needed to implement a star rating component for a project and the requirements needed were: performant (doesn’t include images), resizable, accessible, partial star (e.g: 3.5 or 3.2) dynamically, easy to maintain with CSS.
There are currently four well-supported math functions in CSS. I've found each of them to be extremely useful in my daily work. These CSS functions can be used in perhaps unexpected ways, such as within gradients and color functions and in combination with CSS custom properties. We'll learn the syntax for each, view basic demos of their functionality, and explore practical use cases.
Native CSS nesting is coming to browsers soon. With nesting, that you might be familiar with from Sass or Less, you can greatly cut down on writing repetitive selectors. But you can also really work yourself into a corner if you’re not careful. This is an overview of how you can already use it today, the pitfalls and how to avoid them.
