Pointing out the lack of mask-wearing in photos of concerts, weddings, dinners, and other happy events has a bit of an “all lives matter” vibe to it—technically correct, but dickish.

Just point out a fact. People get mad about that.

Talking about style

I’ve published a transcription of the talk I gave at CSS Day:

In And Out Of Style.

The title is intended to have double meaning. The obvious reference is that CSS is about styling web pages. But the talk also covers some long-term trends looking at ideas that have appear, disappear, and reappear over time. Hence, style as in trends and fashion.

There are some hyperlinks in the transcript but I also published a list of links if you’re interested in diving deeper into some of the topics mentioned in the talk.

I also published the slides but, as usual, they don’t make much sense out of context. They’re on Noti.st too.

I made an audio recording for your huffduffing pleasure.

There are two videos of this talk. On Vimeo, there’s the version I pre-recorded for An Event Apart online. On YouTube, there’s the recording from CSS Day.

It’s kind of interesting to compare the two (well, interesting to me, anyway). The pre-recorded version feels like a documentary. The live version has more a different vibe and it obviously has more audience interaction. I think my style of delivery suits a live audience best.

I invite you to read, watch, or listen to In And Out Of Style, whichever you prefer.

You use JavaScript to polyfill it until the declarative option is widespread enough:

I’ve still got some polyfills in place for IE11 on The Session, but I’d be happy to see ABCJS ditch its polyfills if it makes for a lighter payload.

(Or let me know what the polyfills are and I could add them in myself.)

Here’s how to use the new :has selector in @TailwindCSS. This also shows how you can use older pseudo-classes like :nth-child and :nth-of-type in Tailwind (and it applies to using the adjacent sibling selector too):

You can’t.

Look at this fantastic shot of Jupiter and the Galilean moons taken by @AstroBrighton’s Ivana Peranic at 3am this morning: Jupiter, Io, Europa, Ganymede and Calisto all lined up like a string of pearls!

“Container queries are impossible based on the CSS render routine.”

Oh, no! You’d better tell @DavidBaron:
