I gotta be honest the worst looting I've ever seen take place happened a few weeks ago when corporations collected over 500 billion dollars in stimulus money while everyone else was left with a $1200 dollar check and having to decide if they pay for food or rent..

Oh actually I was thinking of fragmented inline elements. It wouldn't work in this case.

I *could* sketch a solution involving box-decoration-break, characters in data URIs and a bunch of hacks, but it won’t be pretty.

I call this “Mansplaining Driven Development” (MDD for short)

After dinner conversation, a few minutes ago: Chris: How do I test my implementation of rec2100? I can’t find any test data anywhere! Me: Oh in those cases I just publish my code 🤷🏽‍♀️ Dudes on the internet are always eager to point out any mistakes it has — even some it doesn’t!

I believe the Firefox implementation hasn’t shipped yet, but it will any day now.

There will be! We’re working on it in CSS Color 5, I’m one of the spec editors!

Not for at least 6 months according to my contract, but writing it made me realize I want to write a book on the subject, so you may see that at some point! :)

My Increment article is out! While it had to be heavily edited for length with some of the more advanced/crazy stuff removed, I'm happy with the result! :) Can't wait to get my printed copy, their graphic design is GORGEOUS 😍 — it's what convinced me to accept the invitation!

Hey, hey, I have a 🆕 article out on ! In which I take a few patterns from the gallery created by about a decade ago and simplify them so that they each use a single `conic-gradient()` - check it out to see just how much CSS has evolved! 🙀

‘Why is CSS… the way it is?’, in which goes into early CSS features that got in the way later on, small improvements that were made, oversights in the review phase and what's to come

So true. RSS addressed a real need and we threw it away without really having a better alternative.

A reminder that when you hear that only people with another illness are at serious risk of death after contracting COVID19, we're talking 1/3 of the U.S. population

Someone dropped this link as a comment in ⁦⁩’s recent JS article (which was spot on) and I think it’s a great reminder or intro into how we got to where we are in JS land. I know I share some of the same frustrations but this is useful. 🦖

IMO re-inventing the wheel is the best way to learn JS. When I was starting with JS in 2006-2009, I implemented all sorts of things from scratch, a jQuery-like library (because I didn't know jQuery existed), and all common widgets. It taught me more than any JS class ever would.
