In-Page Filtered Search With Vanilla JavaScript

If you have a page that includes a lot of information, it’s a good idea to let users search for what they might be looking for. I’m not talking about searching a database or even searching JSON data — I’m talking about literally searching text on a single rendered web page. Users can already use the built-in browser search for this, but we can augment...

The Greatest CSS Tricks Vol. I eBook (PDF and EPUB)

When I wrote the “book” The Greatest CSS Tricks Vol. I, I put “book” in quotes because there wasn’t anything terribly book-like about it.

A single-serving website from Alexander Vishnyakov for testing if it’s valid to put any particular HTML element within another type of HTML element. Kinda neat to have a quick reference for this. Some combinations feel fairly obvious: can you put a <video> inside an <input>? Uh, no. Some are trickier: can you put a <div>...

What if… you could use Visual Studio Code as the editor of in-browser Developer Tools?

It’s not uncommon for my front-end workflow to go something like this: Work on thing.See that thing in an automatically refreshed browser.See something wrong with that thing.Inspect and correct the thing in DevTools.Apply the correct code in my code editor.See that correct code automatically refreshed in the browser. I know, it’s not always...

The CSS-in-React Landscape

(This is a sponsored post.) I only half-jokingly refer to the CSS-in-JS world as CSS-in-React. Many of the libraries listed below theoretically work in non-React situations — they generally call that “framework-agnostic”) — but I’d guess the vast majority of their usage is on React projects. That’s because React, despite being a UI-focused library,...
