Have you seen Netlify's press page? It's one of those places where you can snag a download of the company's logo. I was looking for it this morning because I needed the logo to use as a featured image for a post here on CSS-Tricks.
Well, I noticed they have these pretty looking buttons to download the logo. They're small and sharp. They grab attention but aren't in the way.
They're also interactive! Look at the way they expand and … Read article
I just did this the other day so I figured I'd blog it up. There is a thing called Git Large File Storage (Git LFS). Here's the entire point of it: it keeps large files out of your repo directly. Say you have 500MB of images on your site and they kinda need to be in the repo so you can work with it locally. But that sucks because someone cloning the repo needs to download a ton of … Read article
Netlify has their own docs for Custom Domains, so if you're looking for horse's mouth technical docs on this stuff, that should be treated as the source of truth. But I'd like to take a crack at it from a slightly different angle, where we look at where you are and what you wanna do, and the point you in the right direction.… Read article
Building and maintaining your own website is a great idea. Not only do you own your platform, but you get to experiment with web technologies along the way. Recently, I dug into a concept called serverless functions, starting with my own website. I’d like to share the results and what I learned along the way, so you can get your hands dirty, too!… Read article
👋 Hey folks! Silvestar pitched this post to us because he is genuinely enthusiastic about JAMstack and all of the opportunities it opens up for front-end development. We wanted to call that out because, although some of the points in here might come across as sponsored content and Netlify is indeed a CSS-Tricks sponsor, it’s completely independent of Netlify.
Being a JAMstack developer in 2019 makes me feel like I am living in a wonderland. All these modern frameworks, tools, … Read article
In September 2018, I was just a few months into my journey of learning web development. As I'm sure is the case with many new developers, it was a big task for me to learn not only the basic skills required, but also keeping current with the fast-moving industry. Just as I was getting to the level where it felt as though I could build a simple website, I started to realize that it was only the first step.

You work a while on a side project. You think it's pretty cool! You decide to release it into the world. And then… it goes well. Or it doesn’t go well. Wait, is that right? You forgot to add analytics — it just didn’t cross your mind at the time. Now you’re pretty curious how many people have been visiting the site, but… you’re not sure. Enter Netlify Analytics.
There are so many times where I:

I created a website called The Power of Serverless for Front-End Developers over at thepowerofserverless.info a little while back while I was learning about that whole idea. I know a little more now but still have an endless amount to learn. Still, I felt like it was time to revamp that site a bit.
For one thing, just like our little conferences website, the new site is a subdomain of this very site:
