Memorize Scroll Position Across Page Loads

Hakim El Hattab tweeted a really nice little UX enhancement for a static site that includes a scrollable sidebar of navigation. 👀 If you've got a static site with a scrollable sidebar, it really helps to memorize the scroll position across page loads.(left is default, right memorized) pic.twitter.com/bLgtILP1JP— Hakim El Hattab...

Building a Blog with Next.js

In this article, we will use Next.js to build a static blog framework with the design and structure inspired by Jekyll. I’ve always been a big fan of how Jekyll makes it easier for beginners to setup a blog and at the same time also provides a great degree of control over every aspect of the blog for the advanced users. With the introduction...

Frontity is React for WordPress

Some developers just prefer working in React. I don’t blame them really, because I like React too. Maybe that’s what they learned first. I’ve been using it long enough there is just some comfort to it. But mostly it is the strong component model that I like. There is just something nice about a codebase where things are constructed from components with...

A little bit of plain Javascript can do a lot

Julia Evans: I decided to implement almost all of the UI by just adding & removing CSS classes, and using CSS transitions if I want to animate a transition. An awful lot of the JavaScript on sites (that aren’t otherwise entirely constructed from JavaScript) is click the thing, toggle the class — which is why jQuery was so good and...

How to Make a List Component with Emotion

I’ve been doing a bit of refactoring this week at Sentry and I noticed that we didn’t have a generic List component that we could use across projects and features. So, I started one, but here’s the rub: we style things at Sentry using Emotion, which I have only passing experience with and is described in the docs as… […] a library designed for...

How to delete all node_modules directories from your computer

Nice tip from Chris Ferdinandi: My node_modules directories contained 50mb of stuff on the small side, and over 200mb of files in some cases. Over a few dozen projects, that really adds up! Two dozen projects with 200 MB worth of node_modules? That’s nearly 5 GB of space for a bunch of stuff you’ve probably forgotten is even there,...

Displaying the Current Step with CSS Counters

Say you have five buttons. Each button is a step. If you click on the fourth button, you’re on step 4 of 5, and you want to display that. This kind of counting and displaying could be hard-coded, but that’s no fun. JavaScript could do this job as well. But CSS? Hmmmm. Can it? CSS has counters, so we can certainly count the number of buttons....

WooCommerce on CSS-Tricks

I always get all excited when I accomplish something, but I get extra excited when I get it done and think, “well, that was easy.” As much as I enjoy fiddling with technology, I enjoy reaping the benefit of well set-up technology even more. That’s why I still get so excited about WordPress — I feel so powerful being able to accomplish big things without...

Improving Chromium’s browser compatibility in 2020

This is exactly what I love to hear from any browser vendor: When it comes to browser compatibility, there are still too many missing features and edge-case bugs. But it doesn’t have to be this way. Things can and will get better, if browser vendors can understand what is causing the most pain, and take action to address the causes. In Chrome...

Bootstrap 5

It’s always notable when the world biggest CSS framework goes up a major version (it’s in alpha now). It has dropped jQuery and IE, started using some CSS custom properties, gone fully customized with form elements, started to embrace utility classes, and includes a massive icon set you can use via SVG sprite. Sweet. Direct Link to Article...
