The following is a guest post by Oliver Williams. Oliver has been working with CSS grid layout and has learned quite a bit along the way. In this article he's going to hop around to different concepts that he's learned on that journey. I like this idea of learning little bite-sized chunks about grid layout, through isolated examples where possible. That makes learning the whole thing a bit less intimidating.
The following is a guest post by Micah Miller-Eshleman. Micah designed a variation of the "Priority+ Navigation" concept and uses it in production at the college he works for. I always dig a show & tell behind the thinking and creation of a design pattern, especially when it's working out there in the real world.
The following is a guest post by Nilan Marktanner from Graph.cool. I don't know about y'all but I've spent plenty of time in my career dealing with REST API's. It's a matter of always trying to figure out what URL to hit, what data to expect back, and how you can control that data. A quick glance at GraphQL makes it seem like it simplifies things both for the creators and consumers of the API. Let's let Nilan explain.
The following is a guest post by Trishah Woolley. Over the years, Trishah has collected a ton of code snippets that do the job of adding IDs and classes based on some variable information, like the URL or data from WordPress. Each of these snippets were either collected from documentation or a similar online resource, or written by Trishah based on standard features of the language and API's involved.
The following is a guest post by Erez Elias. Erez recently attended a WordCamp and wrote to me inspired to write something about WordPress. We agreed this was an interesting topic, and one I've been meaning to document myself as it's something I've done about 100 times in my life and there is always one little detail I gotta look up.
The following is a guest post by Jon Yablonski. Jon is going to show us an example of how we might approach markup such that one component is particularly versatile. It works as-is, and has a standardized way of making variations (adding a single class) that allow the design to be altered to fit the situation.
The following is a guest post by David DeSandro. David wanted to offer a new feature in Isotope: staggered animations. Like so many things web, there are lots of ways he could have approached it. Here he looks at some of the possibilities, the advantages and disadvantages of each, and what he ultimately went with for Isotope.
The following is a guest post by Damon Bauer, who tackles a pretty common web developer job: offering user image uploads. I'd hesitate to call it easy, but with the help of some powerful tools that do a lot of the heavy lifting, this job has gotten a heck of a lot easier than it used to be. Damon even does it entirely in the browser!
