Last year’s State of CSS Survey yielded interesting results. There’s the quick adoption of features, like
calc() and CSS custom properties. There’s also the overwhelming opinion that CSS is fun to write even as we see a growing reliance on CSS-in JS. We also saw some predictable results, like the proliferation of VS Code as a preferred code editor, the dominance of flexbox as a layout model, as well as BEM and Sass being the most adopted technologies with the highest rates of satisfaction.
Chris and Dave disussed the 2019 State of CSS results with co-creator Sacha Greif on ShopTalk Show and dive into many, many more of the results and what they tell us about our industry.
But hey, it’s been [checking my calendar] slightly over a year since that survey and it’s back with a 2020 edition. If you can take it, please do — the more years we have on record, the more interesting trends we can find. Plus, we’ve got a whole bunch of new features and technologies to evaluate, like subgrid, user preference media queries, logical properties,
max(), yada, yada, the list goes on!
And if nothing else, check out the survey site for some bonafide CSS tricks. 😎
