This Type Of CSS Naming Style is Strange

  • # June 17, 2013 at 3:02 am

    I came across this css naming style.

    #nav li:hover {
    dborder: 1px solid #777777;
    dpadding: 4px 9px 4px 9px;
    dbackground: #F4F4F4;
    dborder-radius: 5px 5px 0px 0px;

    I dont understand: ‘d’ before each property.

    Maybe ‘d’ from ‘disable’ or something? I often add an extra character to disable a property for testing, it’s much quicker than commenting the whole line out.

    I think so. But it’s a horrible idea. So if one wants to enable them, he will have to start delete the ‘d’ into 100 times?

    Yes it is. Plus, unused code should never reach production.

    That’s another thing I like about Sass, silent comments `//` types much faster than `/* */` and won’t be included in production CSS :)

    Yes but he may have a script that will do a search and replace for him. Just a thought.

    Whatever, I don’t like it.
